Like jeep, I get my chains from Sprocket Center. Always happy with their stuff and service too.

For sprockets, I run OEM.

Sprocket Center will sell you the correct length of chain

Some other shops will send you a chain with 120 links, not the specified 118. You can make the 120 work for a while, but before too long you'll run out of adjustment capacity.

That is the nice thing with them. Is even if you order a non standard gear ratio they provide the chain with the correct links for your application

I didn't even think about non-standard sizing

That's nice. It didn't occur to me to even think about the issue of having non-standard sprockets.
