Thanks for your educated opinion. Its not to be elitist. Last year on a similar run we did we had one rig on 36" tires, another on 37s and the rest on 40s and 42s. At almost any given part of the day at least one person was winching thats not much of an exaggeration. The rig on 36" tires and the rig on 37s both broke their dana 44 fronts. And the group broke 4 axle shafts total. This time there will literally 4 times as much snow or more.


One of the people on that run last year only has a Samurai on 35s right now and he specifically said he would pass up running it on this trip as to not hold up the group. So yeah could you drag something smaller though probably. But it sure as hell isn't fair for a group to be waiting and taking away from wheeling time so somebody on 35s can winch though to try and prove something. I love to see people with smaller or even stock rigs push the limits of their rigs and beyond, usually I am the one convincing somebody to try something harder than what everyone thinks is possible and spotting them through, but this isn't the place, as I promise even the rigs on 40s and above will have some seriously hard work and some time on this run.
