    Thanks for taking the time to write that all up, I appreciate it.

    That Morrison trail looks interesting (as do the others), I'm putting it on The List.

    I think this is true. My Trooper has a 4" lift and 35" tires (not to mention the weight of various body armor), and was regeared to a near stock drive ratio. It still gets 15-16 mpg at 75 mph (unless...

    There is zero chance of that happening. Wolves just are not that effective of a predator, if their prey animal populations drop theirs will too.

    Yep, either will work. I did the wide-track conversion my previous Trooper which was a 93, and ran spacers on the rear axle. If you source an axle to swap you will need a 95-97 for the right gear...

    Any of the the 92-97 Troopers with a manual transmissions are reliable rigs. The 3.2L doesn't have the oil burning issues of the 3.5L. Either the 175 hp SOHC or 190 hp DOHC are fine, they are...

    Yeah, I've been wondering that too.

    I've also been wondering if a RTT is a good idea on a rig that is that tall.

    Other than having what might be an unhealthy amount of self-worth invested in your vehicle, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.

    Unsprung mass is important more to the suspension than braking IMO. When I went to 35s on my Trooper I was pleasantly surprised that braking was not affected much. I did, however, notice that stiffer...

    Vehicle weight and tire size leverage are both important.

    Braking performance will decrease with added weight, of course. But a bigger tire is like grabbing a longer breaker bar to loosen a bolt,...

    275/70R18s are a little over 33"

    There is logic to the metric tire sizes, but it's a PITA to figure out diameters. But you can do the math. 275 is the width in mm. 70 is the percent of sidewall to...
