Opinions wanted on my WK build

Hi just hoping to get some opinions and a little guidance. I have a 3.7 laredo qt1 WK and I have been planning on putting the OME HD kit on it along with monroe load levelers. I'm planning on either moabs or an xd series rim with 285 70 17 tires and was just hoping to get some opinions on how this setup will handle on road, on the engine, and offroad.

Re: Opinions wanted on my WK build

As Sven mentioned above, this topic has been discussed allot. Do a search and you will have days worth of stuff to read. A member 2for3 has that set up minus the MLL's.

Personally I like the look of the 285's on the OME allot but I am skeptical on the strain they put on the 3.7.

Start searching here...

god damn it lucas you beat me to it..

i would worry about the strain on the drivetrain as well. now some have bought the hypertech programmer to help with the jump in tire size, but still a 3.7 pushing 33s.. still a slug.

jk, it may be bearable.. idk. do a search, a couple guys are running 33s with a 3.7
