    They are awesome!! They do really well on these Ohio hills and they sling mud just like any other M/T.

    I had them on my pick up that I got rid of for the Jeep. I loved them, they spent most of their time on road for me tho. I got pretty good mileage out of them too.

    Yea here anymore they stay on pavement. We've got a little over 30,000 miles on them now and they still look brand new. They are really quiet and smooth on the asphalt. When my tundra needs new tires I'm buying another set of ridge grapplers lol

    I get it and I am with you. While I'd gladly sell someone 37's if they insisted, I like to know that they realize that there are ramifications down the road. I think a JK with alift and 35's is capable of far more than either of us would push our rigs to do.....just my two cents.

    Your right, in fact the stock Jeep will probably do more than I’ll ever need it to but I’m stubborn. Lol.

    I know I'm a little late, New baby (a real baby) is here and I am starting a new company so I have very little free time. The computer is lacking. Thanks for tagging me @JKBob 25 for it shows who is asking about stuff I have experience in.

    My JKU with 37s did well on and off the trail with stock breaks and rotors. Where you will see the most trouble, if you see it, will be brake fade when stopping quickly from high speeds on the highway. I would not waste money on drilled and slotted and upgraded pads. The best stopping pads are metallic, but they wear your rotors faster. Next is semi-metallic. Ceramic pads stay cool longer (less brake fade) and have less dust, but stopping power actually decreases. If I did any upgrade it would be to the Teraflex Big Brake kit. I did not upgrade mine until I went to 40s.

    Congrats on the baby, and no worries on the timing. I’ll take all the advice I can get when I can get it. I did talk to a couple shops in my area and some friends with similar set ups and your post reinforces what they said to me. I think I will run the stock set up till I need to replace then jump up to the teraflex kit at least in the front!
