Thanks,
Short answer - I would definately reccomend them.

Long answer:
Well, compared to the stock 225s they wander a little, but going from the pizza cutter stockers to these big meats it is to be expected. They arent loud and i'm still messing with finding optimal pressure. I love'em and even my wife says that the jeep handles better than stock. They would be fine for commuting as i dont think that they sacrafice any drivability at all. At first i thought that they made the jeep feel like a dog acceleration wise, but since ive racked up over 1000 miles there is a huge difference in power. It almost seems like for the first 800 miles the jeep had 2/3 the power it has now.

Default Missing power...

Thats because it did only have 2/3 of the power. One of the off road mags reported this in their new long term project. Between 800-1000 miles the computer is working to find the optimal settings before going full power. Its a shame people will test drive these and think they are dogs with no power. Mine had 4.10's so it wasn't a problem but I could tell once it woke up.

Only poser pics for now, no one I know is willing to risk the possible mud shower they'd get standing on the side of the hole taking pictures.



It looks better with the lift on, but I haven't taken any pictures of it recently.

Nice!!! Take some pics with the lift >> that's a nice stance already and I'm sure the 2.5 makes it look that much better but I gotta see it!!
