Finally got my wheels and tires today. I just recently installed my Teraflex leveling kit (http://www.jk-forum.com/showthread.p...-kit-installed)
Ordered some 18" XD Addicts yesterday and they arrived today. My plan was to keep the stock tires for the summer, but once I saw some 35s up close, I had to have them.
I was going to go with 295/65/18 Duratracs, but those would take forever to get in (this Friday ) and I couldn't wait. So I went with the Trail Grappler in 35x12.50x18. I was a little worried about them being to big for what I am doing with the Jeep, but I think they will work out. I have yet to drive them on the freeway, but I'm praying that they will work as I really don't want to regear. On the 10 mile drive home, they were not as loud as I was expecting them to be and I didn't feel as much power loss as I would have thought.
I am still waiting for the 5th wheel to come in for the spare. Looking for a used tire to use as a spare as well.
We did remove the front plastic air dam for now. Will modify it and reinstall when new bumper arrives if it's still needed.
Here are some additional pictures
