Well, the start of the 39" BFG MT era begins. 38" Kevlars have been very good to my Jeep. Hoping for the same with the BFG. Drives down the road quite a bit better with the BFG for sure. Not a lot of sidewall squat at 15 psi (at least not yet--we'll see how the H2 beads hold up for EJS 2021)

Those rims looks like they have the same backspacing as the ones I got from John.

I’ve been pretty happy with mine. I mounted them on beadlocks and ran them. No tire balance of any kind. Had em up to 85 and it was pretty smooth. They work pretty good right out of the box. Need to get some more trail miles on them to break them in. I do wish they were an inch or 2 taller...but it’s all good. I run about 20 psi for the road. And about 15 psi while wheelin. Mostly because pinch flats while going fast suck.

Congrats. I love mine. It took some breaking in to get them to hook up well, but they do great now. I run mine at 9 in the front and 8 in the rear, but they're on beadlocks.

Drove it to work today at 15 psi to see if some heat would help a little? Didn't seem to help at all. Likely just need some trail time. I'm hoping to be able to run them where I ran the MTRs, about 11-12 psi. Might have to go a little lower to get them to break in and hook but the H2 aren't really the greatest wheel out there for bead retention.

I have a solution for that. 😎

So, observations from a week in the Jeep.
  • BFG muds are pretty respectable. I put a little air in them as the week went on. One big difference I noticed between the MTR and BFG was the significant width difference. Driving adjustments were made and we soldiered on. The newer rubber gripped significantly better than the 10+ year old Goodyear’s. The BFG drives MUCH better on the roads than the MTR ever dreamed of. I ended the week at 13-14 psi
  • I need/want some new seats. The cheap Bestop seats have served me well. Probably time to seek out a solid replacement
  • I need to complete my rear 4 link purchases and get that done. (Need to buy some upper link helms and upper links. Some kind of low profile truss for the 14 bolt. Add some shocks and hope the 3” Rockcrawler XJ springs are a good spring rate for the rear) The leafs on the back have seen their day. I have to be very gentle on climbs and such to keep “bounce” out of the rear. Gentle isn’t bad but it’d be nice to have some confidence in the rear setup
  • I’ve always wanted to stretch this to LJ or CJ8 length but I think I just leave it at 100-102” and go from there. Keep the easily replaceable top and such. If I’m going to do it, now is the time before redoing the rear suspension
  • D300: what can I say. Not the biggest fan. I may just try to find a pass drop 241 and never think about a transfer case again? I think I’ve used front dig maybe 10-12 times in the time I’ve had the Jeep?

My brother had a gm 241 in his tj. It worked great. He did spend the coin on a super short sye from jb conversions. At d300 prices these days you could probably make that a net zero $$ swap haha

I put in a 241 in my Commando, its a mix of a Dodge 241 with a Chevy input shaft. The Dodge comes with a non slip yoke rear output. It has worked great for me.

So, I had a pretty significant drain on my battery after coming home from EJS this year. This buzzer turned out to be the culprint. Took me about 4-5 hours to trace that downimage.jpgimage.jpg



I don’t have a clue what that affects other than I won’t hear a buzzer if I leave my headlights on.

We did notice one of your taillights were sometimes not working, or much dimmer than the other side. Other times, it worked fine. I don't know if that helps any.

I think I used this to replace my '89 gm wiring mess. More circuits than I needed and way easier than sorting out that mess.
