Yep. Ty, if you can gear low enough, you can run as large a tire as you want on our little 4 cylinders and crawl with the best of them. It's all about gearing!

The factory axles limit you to about 33s because they can only be geared to 4.88. Swap to 1-tons with 5.38 and an Atlas 5.1 like Art has and it will crawl nice with 40s.

121:1 crawl ratio works pretty good with 40's
