But did I see that right that the 37" are a load range E
I would thing that would suck on a relatively light weight rig like yours

Stickies are E and the radials are D. As much as I would love the stickies there are $100 more per tire and I don't think my drivetrain would last at all haha

Now I just have to decide 35s vs 37s, price difference is only like $20 per tire but I don't want to be breaking shit every time I wheel. Anybody still run 1310 u joints with 37s?

It COULD live with 37s but you may need to adjust your driving slightly lol
And if not it's only axle and drive shafts, both upgradeable.
That ugly blue yj has 1310 drive shafts and stock axle shafts with 39.5s and he makes them live for a while

What stickies are you talking about? If you are road driving very much you will wear them out in no time.

I actually managed to get a lot of pictures at bundy yesterday. It ended up being me, my brother, my room mate and toyfish. We ran most of the hard stuff and toyfish and my roomate ran warn valley. I wanted to but right before we got to it I bent a heim so bad that it pulled out of the insert.
