yes, with the right back spacing. I have 315's on mine w/ 2" spacer, 1" body and steel wheels.

Warning: Broad Generalization ahead:

I dunno if it makes it any less safe. The times I've seen people with "too built for their skill level" jeeps at parks, they usually shy away from the harder obstacles. I find they are usually the ones that are the most afaid of getting stuck, so they stick to what they know they can make.
I concur, I also agree that yes, with a mild built rig I think one is going to have more carnage w/ a 37 over a 35.

For the type of wheeling I enjoy, 39.5"s are a blast and I started out with 29".

Who makes 40's?
