Alright, here's the deal: I'm a broke college kid who just had to sell my baby ('80 CJ-7, 350/350 combo, scout D44's, lockers, SOA w/ 2" springs, 35.12.50 BFG MTs, etc.). It was simply not feasible to drive this vehicle the 5 hours it takes me to get to college. So, I sold it to buy the '97 TJ I have now. This summer, as money comes, I plan to add a 2" coil spacer lift and probably an inch of body lift also. This should be enough to clear 32x11.50s on my 15x8 rockcrawlers with 3.5" backspacing. Now comes my question: what, IYO, is the best all around tire out there that is affordable? It has to be an MT style, I wheel too much for an AT. I have 31x10.50 Eldorado ZRTs on it right now and love them, but I was just checking to see if there may be something better. The Procomp X-terrains? Also, what are some other affordable modifications that I can perform to increase off-road performance and get more power outta my poor little 4 banger? Thanx guys.
