    One question here guys

    When you were welding the jeeps drive shaft
    Weren't you worried about the setting the grass alight ?

    We had a fire extinguisher ready and some water ready. It was just out of the camera shot.

    Off course Marius, you are correct

    But traction and the ability to get over big rocks are two different things.

    The difference in footprint between a 31.5 and a 33 is marginal and I don't care what anybody says, the 3.8 JKU is seriously underpowered/incorrectly geared at highway speeds, especially in hilly territory. In low range however it has more than enough oomph, especially the Rubicon with its extra low gearing.

    Sure I don't do 120 on a trail. But I do 120 for a few thousand kilos from my home in Durban to trails in Limpopo or Gariep or Bots.

    My Jk could do 160 no hassle with my old 33s on, uphill I could keep a constant 140 with no regear or gear drop.

    Power loss on the 3.8 non existent. Nonsense. I have a 3.8 , it is so underpowered/badly geared that it can't pull the skin off a rice pudding on the open road. [Fluffy you sure they didn't see you coming, if your 3.8 struggles so much with 33s I think you got an UNO motor in. 33s doesn't effect your power that much.

    And yes I have a set of 33's, all five in my garage, which I took off because the difference in traction in no way compensates for the negative side effects. They do look cooler, but that's about it. I honestly hope you really don't believe your statement there if you do it's time to stop snorting you table salt bud.

    35's will significantly increase the risk of drivetrain and stearing damage and death wobble, indisputable FACT. As I have stated above if you want to run bigger tyres you have to do some other mods as well to protect against damage, as for death wobble if you balance the wheels properly and take the other precautions you should never have a problem

    But that is all of academic interrest as this debate is about 31.5 vss 33 again 33 has more rubber, air it down = more traction, simple concept
    Mmmm, there is nothing wrong with my JKU. Yes it can do 160, but that is wringing its neck and you will get over 20L/100km.

    Maybe a 3door JK is better, but I assure you that on the 3.8 JKU Rubicon with the three speed auto box, driving at legal highway speeds with 33s is an exercise in frustration in KZN's hilly territory.

    The point I am trying to make, is that on some cars, especially a JKU, the difference in traction between a 31.5 and a 33 is not significant enough to offset the other negative effects. For someone like me that travels hundreds or even thousands of kilometers on the open road to spend a week playing, it is a no brainer. I have both tyre sizes and can and have swapped between the two.

    Obviously 35's will be better on Baboons than 31.5's in many circumstances, i am not snorting enough salt to dispute that.

    Stem 100% saam....na laas jaar se Baboons trip het almal ook soos nou gevra wat die "requirements" is om dit te kan doen.....en een van my comments was dat jy mooi moet kyk na saam met wie jy gaan en of dit mense is wat jou sal bystaan as dit moeilik gaan. Wanneer dit moeilik gaan is dit maklik vir iemand om hul sin vir humor te verloor en dit kan maklik die punt bereik waar mense se lewens in gevaar gestel word.

    Yes I agree with you Barto.

    The guys that came with on the Baboons trip last year were great. This year's trip was also an awesome trip.

    I was scared of these Jeep guys at first but they are awesome.
