Yes I am on 38x13.5x17 Milestar Patagonias with a 3” Synergy Manufacturing lift. The truck handles them great both on and off road. You sort of lose 8th gear on the highway but 7th works perfect. I will be regearing eventually but I don’t feel the need to immediately.

Also if you want to see some videos of it off road you can find a bunch at www.YouTube.com/TJMitchellFilms

Interesting question. I wondered the same for a Gladiator. Here in New Jersey 38" is the maximum you're allowed to have on a vehicle. I currently run 37s on a JK.

Not sure how they apply the law. Technically, a 38” tire isn’t actually a 38” tire. To get around a true 38, you’d probably have to run close to a 40” tire. Also, I HIGHLY doubt a cop knows that law and would EVER cite you for it. Remember, NJ also doesn’t do safety inspections so as long as you pass emissions, I don’t think that will ever be a problem.

I wondered myself if they mean actual diameter or labeled diameter. I don’t know.

I never took my JK on 37s in 11 years to the free public inspection (instead paid for private inspection) to avoid being permanently labeled as a “high rise vehicle” which requires you to go to one of three special high rise inspection locations in NJ. I had to with my TJ on 35s in the early 2000. It’s mostly fine... just a pain... you need to schedule an appointment and it could be far and they can get picky. They were picky if tread sticks out of fender and that you have mud guards on all four and height from door sill to ground.

Things May have changed since but I just didn’t want to risk it.
