New to Me 2007 JKJS74 HEMI/5-speed Auto


Just picked it up finally

Pick it a-part, bash it, praise it. I'm looking for feedback on tires. I hopefully have a nice set of Hutchinson's lined up. I'm just not feeling the 20's. A lil'too flashy for me.

MTR with Kevlar or KM2 are both pretty equal offroad. The MTR tends to be made rounderm quieter, and somewhat better on the road. The KM2 is about 10 pounds lighter per tire.

The Duratrac is a very good all-around tire, that is also winter rated. I've watched little 33 Duratracs climb pretty much every obstacle at Moab, I was impressed. But they only go up to 35" in size.

I like this idea! I'd be for it if it really left no impact on the environment

That would be me :)

Was this a JK listed on JKO?
