Okay, I got a 76' CJ7 and I have had Shannon Cambpell do spring over, shackle reversal, and set up my engine.

Now I am planning on running 35" tires but do not know witch ones I should by.

I got a D30 front and amc20 rear. Both locked with detroits and geared to 4:56, one piece chrome-oly and everthing you can do to it.

either,
35x12.50xR15 Good year MTR's
or
35x14.00xR15 Interco Super Swamper Bogggers.


I am not sure if boggers are to wide. Would like to use them.

Thanks:smokin:

It depends on what you're using it for if its for offroad only the boggers are sweet, but if you will drive it on road the MTR's are probably the way you wanna go. just a thought

one more thing to think about is depending on your driving style boggers are a very unforgiving tire and will tell you exactly where any weak point you have is at but they do hook up really good i run 38.5" boggers on mine

Boggers are great but lack when side hilling. Do a search (if it's working) in the hard core section to see how people cut and carve their boggers to get better performance from them.

BFG MTRs are a good 'all around' tire much closer to an all terrain tire than the bogger is...

As mentioned above, it all depends on what you will be wheeling on.

MTR's all the way. Just make sure you get 5 of them.

I think you mean D30 front right? I'd go with the lightest of those 2, the MTR. D30 and AMC20 are not robust axles and the less rotational weight you have stressing on them, the better.

If you run a lot of mud, avoid the MT/R's. They have a terrible reputation for mud. Obviously, if you run a lot of mud, boggers would be the way to go.

I'm assuming that since you're from AZ, you'll see more time on rocks, in that case, the MT/R's have been really popular in the SW. Good tire for rocks and still very streetable.

One point that's been brought up was the weight of the Boggers, if you really like them, consider 35x10.50x15's. Should be a lot more forgiving on your drive train and will probably be a bit more streetable. I don't know if you've ever seen those 35x14x15's on a Jeep before, but, they kind of make it look like a roller skate IMO.

Thanks for your guys help. From what I'm under standing it looks like MTR's are probly less stress on my axles.

So I will most likely go with MTR's.


Thanks

I forgot But I had shannon Cambpell do spring over for me and would that weaken the axles at all? One dude said that it could weaken your axle by 50%?

SOA won't weaken the axles. SOA will put more stress on the springs, but done right (and I'm sure yours is) it's not an issue. Also - disregard the BS about a D35 1) you don't have a 35 up front and 2) the 35 has a bad rep in YJ/XY/TJ rear applications.

Throw a set of MT/R's on the Jeep and go wheel it.

Are you even paying attention you incompetant boob. this is a '76 CJ

That means no D35 retard.

It's a typo, it's a D30 front and an AMC 20 rear:flipoff2:

Defenitely the MTRs. I'd say those Boggers might be a bit much for the D30 gear set. As long as you have them chromo'd it'll probably be your weak link.
