Been thinking tons and 40ís
I had typed-up one of my regular chapter-size comments regarding @ALASHA s comment but @Texas_Jester took care of it for me, heh.
No, this is very pertinent info from a trusted source ; myself ,and it seems a good few others , are in this stage of build / use so this is great info. I have been considering the next movesand bounce between sticking with 37s on maxed out OEM housings and parts that fortify versus the 1tons and 40s.
With this in mind , I gotta add that the larger housings ( UD60s) + bigger tires (40") permitted one of our fellow members - @TCdawg - to make it over an obstacle that my 37s and built stock housings could not clear by just about the amount of clearance difference between the two.
This took place ,literally ,a week ago.
I thought I had it all worked out in my head and was sticking with the 44s and 37s for my rig until Tony crawled up&over an obstacle with some good driving and his monster setup that , even with much help from quality spotters and 'spirited' crawling , I got 80% up but still needed to pull line on to finish. To be fair , I got positioned bad by misuse of my throttle for a split second, but either way , the first thing I said after spooling my line back in after Tony anchored and towed my rig over it was that "I want 40s so I can make it up that thing easier ..." .
Then there is the benefit of full float versus semi to consider w/ this huge investment and upgrade.
I'm more unsure now than ever what to do but info like what ALASHA and everyone else in this provide is really appreciated as is the OP for starting the discussion..
