And no offense, but your pics you've shown aren't what I consider "wheeled hard". You need to run a black or red at RC or somewhere with some real rocks first!

Seriously, keep running 33's until you wheel this ***** hard a few times. You'll thank me later!
x2. The 37s themselves may be cheap, but the money is in the supporting mods. Your looking at f/r axle upgrades, steering, OTA trackbar, unibody bracing, etc. With the wheeling you do, locked on 33s will likely take you farther than you are comfortable going.

Stick with your tire size and build from there, then jump up in size when you are ready. Thats my plan anyway, and mine isnt anywhere close to the biggest, but even locked on just 32s has been a blast. I can just hammer down and not worry. Plan is to get stiffeners burned in and geared, among other mods then go bigger.

All in all tho, all the fun is to be had with where you are right now. Lifted, 33s, low budget, and just out having fun. Rock that as long as you can, because anything after that becomes a money pit.

This. KM2 and BFG A/T's that I have seen have some weak sidewalls. Plus they run generally small.
