Peter, amazing write-up!

I still think it’s so damn cool you did this in the Disco with 7.5 XZLs. Most the pics I see of the Rubicon are those big, ugly Jeeps with huge 37s. Way cool!

LOL, no tube buggy shit. I stick to KvT's concept of not building single-purpose vehicles. The difference between 31" and 34" tire on the 'Con is stacking rocks every 100 yards or not stacking rocks at all; this is driven by the mean under-diff ground clearance of million jeeps on the trail (35-37" tires aired down to single digits with modified 44 or 60 axles).

When you trailer a Jeep on 42"s to the trailhead... can you really say you did the Rubicon?

I think not.
