LJs are early suzukis with 800 CC engines. gears in the diffs are 4;56s. im running a 235 75 15 on my sj with lots of room for bigger tires, but the little engine cant handle much bigger without tcase gears. i like the 235s cuz i can still get wheel spin in the mud but i find them a litttle small for rocks and other shit like that.

well the g/f's dad just bought some 33's off me for his landcuriser and he has a 4 spd and they look awsome and he doesnt complain about lack of power (engine is Inline 6 )

its a fullsize thing! jeep owners just wont understand:P
