Put it this way. You could build a jeep on 40" tall tires and run 2 tracks in a foot of snow while not breaking anything and it could be fun for awhile. However eventually you will get board and might try something harder like Johnson Valley. Sure your rig might end up on its side, but I can bet you wouldn't be the least bit board.

We don't put our vehicles through what we do because we have to, its done simply to have fun.
True in many cases. But you would be amazed at the amount of people I have seen with well built rigs on 40's who never push their rigs to their potential. Maybe it's because they don't want to break or have to do repairs, don't have the money for the repairs or simply because it's not their thing. Some like a show rig and others are afraid. No matter the reason, just because you have the ability does not mean you will.

The OP asked if he will break going from a 35" tire to a 36" tire. The answer to that basic question is no. Just because he has beadlocks and has the potential to air down further does not mean he should or will.

I say go for it.
