in a huge debate over what tire size I want to run on my new JKU. I’m very interested in 295/70R17 but I’d like to see them in person mounted on a jeep before making this large purchase.
so anyone out there with this setup willing to meet up for a little in the Chicagoland area, let talk.

Without knowing each wheel’s offset, I did a round about guesstimate on wheel-size.com Tacomaworld.com using the stats you posted:
In my opinion.. it’s going to be tight with some rubbing. So unless you’;re planing a lift.. good luck with this setup. That’s living large for sure.

Hey fellow Jeepers,
So I have a bit of a delima and looking for a few suggestions. Maybe a few others have a similar setup that works well. So I have a 2015 JKU w/factory hardtop; I’m adding safari straps so during the nicer mos. I take the dogs with me and not worry about them trying to jump out.
We are planning a family vacation down to FL in a few weeks and want to be able to leave the hardtop at home, but as everyone thats ever been to florida knows afternoon rain showers and pop-up storms happen almost daily. I’ve looked through the soft top options and read reviews on trail cab covers, emergency tops, etc.
While the cab cover would probably keep everything inside drier, it doesn’t allow for driving since you can’t see out and it would be a ‘pull-over and wait it out’ scenario. The emergency top does allow for driving at low speeds and seems to have some mixed reviews with how well it works. Personally, I don’t mind if a bit of rain gets in, that why jeeps have drain plugs in the floor plus I have slush mats which would catch some of it.
My main concern is on the drive down getting drenched in a down pour and all our stuff getting soaked before we check in at the hotel. So I started thinking, is there another option that I’m just not thinking about. Maybe getting a bikini top with duster for the ride down and just store it. Not sure that the duster would actually work with the straps though.
I don’t really want a full soft-top that requires me to install a lot of additional hardware that I would need to remove when I switch tops. The tailgate channel I have to have for the safari straps, which I plan to leave the straps on 24/7/365, so a minimal install is cool.
Anyway, if anyone has a similar situation (hardtop at home and ride w/straps), I’d love to hear your setup and any pros/cons you have with it.

I’m currently looking into buying new tires setup. Looking at a 33×12.5/R17 tire with a 17×9 wheel.
Anyone have pictures of this setup and how far they stick out past flares?

Is it possible for the dealer to disable the OBD2 gauge readout to my Pioneer 4200NEX?
I installed the headunit two weeks ago and all has been working fine. Brought the Jeep to the dealer to have them do a tint and headliner they hooked up their iPad under the steering wheel… Asked what the connection I had was and wanted to know if it provided engine warnings…
I just told them it was my Headunit wasn’t too concerned that they disconnected it. However, since then I am getting a notification that the OBD2 is disconnected…
It it possible that the dealer changed a setting to stop readouts? The fuel gauge and MPG functions still seem to be operating…
