2012 Jeep Wrangler Long Term Road Test

2012 Jeep Wrangler: The Buzz

January 03, 2012


As you already know, we swapped the factory meats with some big mudders. I did a 300 mile round trip over the New Years holiday weekend, so I've got a decent amount of seat time riding on the 33's.

Does it cause more sonic pain?

As you can tell by the video, albeit from a crappy phone camera and limited audio capability, it's really a wash. Yes the tire noise is there, but he soft top still creates more noise than the tires themselves. I'm sure the extra 2-inches of lift provided by the off-road BFG's help soften the reverberated sound.

We'll see if a lift kit will further deaden the sound.
