37s on a 2 door with D30

I have a 2011 2 door with a D30 sleeves and gussets and Synergy ball joints. RK 2.5 x factor with synergy tierod and drag link flipped. Still running stock axles shafts. Running 4.56 gears. I wheel about once a month or so. I try to wheel smart and not do a lot of bouncing.

Im looking at going 37s. I love the look of Toyo open country but they are very heavy. I have Nitto Trails Grapplers now and they have been great. A few guys wheel with are running Cooper discoverer stt and I can get a great deal on them and they come in 37x13.50 unlike Nitto TGs. What would be a good tire for my set up.

Running 37 Trail Grapplers on my 2010 2 door with a D30 with 4.88 gears. So far it is working great. You just have to wheel a little smarter with the 30 if you want it to last.

I run 37 toyo mt's on my d30 with 4.88s. You will eventually break things, but you can then upgrade!

i run 37s on an Aussie locked dana 30 w/ 5.13s. I have the c gussets as well. I wheel it often and hit moderate trails. I replaced the axle shafts with nitro when i destroyed the stock junk, and have had to replace the front gears once.

I also upgraded the steering and front end components and everything has been working well together. You'll def be spending more money once you jump to 37s but i think it was worth every penny
