Who makes a "true" 35" tire? most 315/70/17s measure the same as the same brands 35x12.5x17s, it is just a different way of saying the same size.
General Grabber AT's are true to size in height. That's what I am running

Huh? A dealership installed new gears in his Jeep for "free"? What dealership did that?
He worked into his deal and the dealership said they did it for free he paid for just on the deal sheet it says they did it… old car sales trick…

For Canadians it’s $4,995, and it’s only available on 2021 Rubicon Unlimited v6. 4.88s are an option for the 2022 model year.

honestly for the cost of wheels, beadlocks, a 1 1-2” lift, and gears. This is cheap esp since it’s all factory warrantied.

I don’t get the hang up about a “true 35”. It is meant to indicate a size class, not to be a hard and fast spec measurement. A 70” TV isn’t really a full 70 either. I think if such a small deviation is such a concern, a fella may have other issues. :LOL:

I can't seem to find pricing for the Extreme Recon package. Ford only gets $2500 over the Rubicon-equivalent Badlands to get the rest of the Sasquatch package (which only adds slight lift, fenders and tires/wheels).

Don't forget Kenda's hybrid offering to the 35x10.5 gods. Behold the glorious Klever.

I’m looking at those too but since the Interco Super Swampers are taller, I’m leaning towards them.

Rubicon, Mojave, and Max Tow I think all have the wides.
So do diesel versions and some (all?) High Altitude models. I just found this out last week about the high altitudes with wide track axles, not sure of all the details though.

True, the size of the tire doesn't vary based on whether they are listed in metric or in inches, but in the "inch-measurements" its often easier to find Load Range D or E. Of course, the "best" load range is case-specific, and is determined by end-use (vehicle weight, payload expectations, towing weight), or by personal preference; some folks running relatively light rigs still want E-rated tires, especially if they have suffered psychological scarring from multiple slashed sidewalls ;)
