    Thanks for the heads up. I'm stock and thinking heavily on it. Can you tell me about the braking? Already hard to stop with 35s I don't see 37s as to much heavier. I bought the tazer for adjustment and well I'm underwhelmed to day the least....

    Yeah, braking sucks. But I've always felt like these brakes have sucked. Definitely wanna do new pads asap

    Couldn't agree more. I'd have to do new pads atleast when I put the 37s on to help

    In addition to examining the differences in drivability between the sizes (35 vs 37) and load ranges (D vs E), don't forget to check the weight of the specific tires you're considering. Keep in mind that there are 35s out there that weigh more than 37s. Of course sizing and load ranges are correlated with weight, but it can vary quite a bit -- I have 35" Toyo MTs on my right right now -- which are a heavier tire -- so there are certain other AT or MT even tire brands I could switch to and be at the same weight or less in 37 form.

    Like many of you I am considering 37s ... looking at possibly purchasing a Thuren Overland suspension kit if I decide to go that route.

    Also I would advise getting wheels with a good offset for 37s vs getting wheels with a subpar offset and running spacers.

    I do not, having a sunroof definitely may have swayed my decision
