    33" challenge

    Soooooooooo my buddy and I are thinking we're going to do a 33" tire challenge. Nothing "formal". But after building everything all the way up to 42's and tons... We're both sorta over that life.

    BUT, we still want to get out and do some day trips. And the local stuff that HRJA does is pretty tame for a rig on tons and 42's... So we're thinking V8's and 33's lol. It'll make the local trails more challenging, and honestly, we'll break less.

    He has a rig with a blown 4.0 and I THINK i'm buying one of his spares (it's long armed with 6.5" of lift, but has a 9" out back and an atlas).

    I'll update this thread if anyone's interested in doing some trips with us. We figured it'd make the blues interesting again.

    Never blame the beer. It's only there to lend a hand.

    If you park it with the flat spots down they measure as 33s.

    I think the plan is going to be to drive these out to either rausch or big dogs and wheel/camp for a weekend. a couple guys are looking at beater geo trackers and stuff too.

    basically it's just us going wheeling lol.

    See, that is why I've always had multiple rigs - one for every build level! (Though the only thing I currently have on 33's (read 34" LTB's) is Katey's old wrecked purple ZJ which is DEFINITELY no longer a street rig! ��)
