Go 33's! 35's are huge and make you look like a redneck. :p

I'm with Rockjock on this one (Unless you are a hardcore rock crawler like Woody and have reason for the huge tires)

If you go with the 35's make sure you get one of those "No Fear!" stickers or the guy peeing on the jeep logo - they kind of go hand in hand.

No offense to anyone, just my opinion.

35's for a redneck?!?!?!?!?!?!? AHHHHHHH im going 36's, and im the farthest thing from a redneck, its all in the name of wheelin. I could go 42's if i did the SOA with my lifter springs, but i thought that was a little much, getting towards hickish. JMO

I ran 35s with a lockright in the front w/o power for a while. As long as you were moving it wasnt that bad. But power made it a whole lot better.

35's REDNECK ? Im runnin 38's and wouldnt trade them for all the 33's out there. :D

Roughly how much does it cost do power steering, what is the least expensive way to do it? I am in school and broke. How hard is it to do yourself and how much would a average shop charge? Also would there be any problems installing ps because i have a small block 350?

thanks

PS with a 350 is easy...IIRC, my Scout setup ran under $200, but I made my own double steering arm, a custom steering shaft, etc. &nbsp:Done RIGHT with histeer, it's more in the $500+ range. I'm still working on finishing mine up right, just did Flaming River joints this winter and histeer is next for this spring.

Just my 2 cents:
Wheeler/Driver: 33's with mini-truck power steering
Full time wheeler: 35's with Saginaw power steering

Also, are your rear fenders cut out? If not you might run into clearance probs with just a 4" spring lift. You might need to add some extended shackles and trim some to clear 35's. I have the 4" Skyjacker kit and I clear 33's with no probs. If I upgraded to 35's I would absolutely need to cut out my rear fenders to clear them.

Well, from this thread I have learned that in some people's opinion I am "real strong" :D and a "redneck" :eek: for having 35's and no power steering. Actually, I claim to be neither 8).

HAHAHAHA

Anyways, I have no probs with them on or off road until I get one in a tight spot with like a wall of dirt on the sidewall, then there is no hope to turn them. And yes, it sure motivates you to put P/S up higher on the "I want" list.

What do you all think about the jt outfitters setup, seems a little steep but it looks complete. Anyone one know how much it costs to get ps proffesionally installed?

That bracket that JTOutfitters makes for toyota boxes looks real nice.

?? Would it be better to go that way and avoid such a long steering shaft that the other setups have which put the box so far forward, or the other where you can eliminate that drag bar or whatever it's called that goes from the box to the center arm?

Any opinions. Thanks
