Actually what I want to hear is that you feel comfortable enough with what you're running to make a convincing statement to encourage others to do the same and still sleep at night.

I do a lot of stuff I wouldn't encourage others to do and I'm pretty careful about which garden path I like to lead folks down, but then again, that sort of stuff matters a lot to me? How about you?

I hear you mrblaine, you have lots of experience with this stuff. I really dont want to get in an argument here. Just stating what I run.

What I know is I have been running them for about 2 years with no issues. That is what I know.

I also agree that is is at the limit of what a 44 can handle. When it breaks I will go bigger.

In fact I am fairly sure I have seen more people with problems with 35s on a 35.

I've seen more gunshot deaths due to guns than not. But I'm not really sure how that's relevant to the question at hand.

I work on a lot of rigs and I see stuff all the time that I'd never run, yet the owner's were and are quite happy to do so and never even batted an eye even when I point it out to them. Point being, if there's a goose and a gander standing there trying on clothes, it may not always be one size fits all and without any qualifiers, you, by stating what you've run for how long without issues may just sound like a glowing recommendation to someone. If that was your intent, then by all means, carry on.

Well, I've never eaten a turd sandwich, but I wouldn't have a problem recommending not to try it.

But I'm sure someone out there will post that they regularly eat turd sandwiches with no problems...

Thats what you get on here, I have been running 35" with 373s with a 3sd auto sents 2002 when I bought the Jeep, and love it, 37s with 410 will be close to the same, but don't do it!

I have thought about this...not much mind you...probably due to my attention span...

I have a TJ with Rubi axles..4:10 and an auto 3 speed...3.5 inch RE lift with a 1 inch body lift...

Will soon be fitting the Metal Cloak tube fenders..will easily have room for 37's....have been very tempted..regardless as to what my wife says...bigger (that's me)..ahhh never mind...

I'm thinking of putting my 35's which are on my buddies Jeep that use to be mine under my TJ and lose the 1 inch body lift
