Or, be near retirement age, have your kids out of the house and a wife who considers anything less than our diesel pusher RV "Roughing it" :-) Makes life simpler!You'll change your mind when you have a wife and 2-3 kids. Plus you wont go the same places you do now out of concern for them and their welfare. Stay single is my advise if you want a jeep 2 door.
Yeah I hear ya. My wife's idea of camping was checking into a Holliday in. I had a 67 Bronco back then she didn't care much for. So being a loner is all I ever knew if I went hunting fishing or camping.Or, be near retirement age, have your kids out of the house and a wife who considers anything less than our diesel pusher RV "Roughing it" :-) Makes life simpler!
Welcome and you have a vey nice rig going there. The three vehicles you mentioned are legends in their own right. Ford also has built many legends and they wont quit till it's done. Good choice my friend, I'm turning green..Hey guys. New here. Not a Jeep, Toyota or LR but I have an '18 Ford Raptor that I'm hoping will spend a lot more time off road than on. Mostly stock now but I'm in the process of getting it outfitted. So far the biggest mods have been leveling the front, on board air and more money than I'm comfortable admitting in Baja Designs lighting. Have a set of 17" Method 305's waiting to go on. I'm currently looking for a bed rack that will allow me to use a roof top tent. Any suggestions you guys have is absolutely welcome!

Whats wrong with the 20" wheels you have ?Jumped off the Jeep bandwagon last fall, after almost 30 years and bought a ram 1500. I liked it so much that I traded that for a 2500 diesel. Just need to get rid of the 20" wheels for some 17/18".
I get it. I have an older 1984 Ram 250 4x4. I have 265/70r/17 on it that came off a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500. I'm changing over to a 305/R 70/16 for the same reason. I want more cushioning and better back spacing because the new wheels are 10" wide versus 8".. I will gain about 1 1/2 " of height as an added benefit.From what I read it is 17" minimum. The wheels on it now have 0 offset so they make the truck about 8" wider than it needs to be and 17" tires are cheaper, better for airing down without popping a bead and more rubber to absorb obstacles without hitting the rim or pinching the sidewall. I also like narrow tires and would like some 285/75r18 toyo at. 35x11 pretty much.
I really like your setup. I, too, have the struggles of fitting everything into a 2 door JK. But I love this thing.
