I'm running 32x11.5 on 3.75" bs wheels. Only breakage was a cj-5's axle joint, a YJ's flare changed shape , and a TJ's pass. side mirror got ripped off.

Thanks for the compliments, it was to say the least awesome. We couldn't have asked for better weather, trails, etc.

It wasn't the Budget Boost bro it was you and your TJ! Still, it truly is amazing what a Jeep can do with those coil spacers and slightly larger than stock tires... here's mine with a 2" RE BB and 31x10.50 BFG AT's:

For some reason it wasn't flexing upfront like it should. I only got stuck once, and it didn't take much to get me out. My swaybar was completely removed upfront. It still is currently. I am going to order an anti-rock. The 3rd pic from the bottom shows the rear end was doing most of the work... The front pass side tire was almost stuffed there too. I think the trailmaster lower control arms actual limit the front articulation. They will get replaced someday.
