Got the 8.25 trussed with arb locker and moly shafts and hp 30 also trussed with 30 spline shafts and arb so yes stock but built......4.56 gears don't really need a tire that big but I can get 4 of them for 200 bucks new and I think that plow lug would be be great in mud pit

I ran 33x15.5 SX's on a Dana 30 for a long time and didn't have major problems.

Those nice wide tires on that jeep worked great in sand, snow, rocks, and mud when properly aired down.

Why not use wide tires if you'd like to?

Are the titan bar tires you are referring to the skid steer type that are like 900 ply?

I would think they would be a terrible tire on an XJ for anything more than a mudbog, even then they won't be that great.

buy 'em and cut 'em, otherwise they will be way to heavy.

I had 35x14.50 or 15.50s on mine with 8 inch Springs and long arms with little rubbing. I have 35x13.50 Baja Claws now and they don't rub. I'm not sure how my cut job compares to bushwhackers tho.
