Build Questions

I'm getting ready to get into phase II of my 10 year build project with my 90... here are some misc questions I'm hoping to get some opinions/insight on.

With a 3" rovertyme lift should I go with 37's or 35's? I have trail ready bead-locks 16x10. I want to go with the 37's but feel the 35's are the logical choice...


Differentials & Lockers? What are you running and what do you like about it? My objective is to drive 4 hours highway to the Rubicon, who wheelin and drive home. Also drive on snow in the Sierra's a good bit.


Leaning towards Pro Comp X terrains, but Bill @ GBR makes some really good points on "All Terrains" if your not muddin... which I really don' t due. Hard to imagine potentially putting on 37's AT's! Nonetheless, any thoughts from the Professionals???

Thanks so much. gh

1. 35's
2. ARB's front and rear, 4.11 diffs with HD Axles and CVs.
3. Get the tires you want for the way you will use the truck.

ARB's
Good axles and CV's (I know where you can get those
I've been wanting to try the Goodyear Duratrac. I have some friends with them and they are very impressed in the snow and the rocks and they are quiet like a mouse.
As much as I've liked the BFG AT's over the years it is dated and there are much better tread patterns (modern design)out there.

my duratrac have been great and I wouldn't consider them much less aggressive than a pure MT either.

We just put those on a customer's 110. He isn't an off roader but wanted something with bite. So far they have been really nice and a good dual purpose (with a street emphasis) tire.
