omfg .. this thread is full of horse shit now.
Are 37"s the new 35"s turned into axle strength and cost comparisons
... just get out and do some fucking wheeling and stfu. If you're building a rig .. build it .. if you have a rig .. wheel it .. if you have stock axles .. use your head .. if you have built axles .. wheel it .. hard. Cheese and rice.
Just so a point is made .. in general, yes, it seems common that more people who used to have 35's now have 37's and most the guys I know that had 36's to 37's are now on 39.5 and up.
To each their own.
