Not saying lift & tires can't be a great asset, but they can be a liability if done wrong = Mall Crawler / Fail Rated.
Some what true I was wheeling back in 1975, never seen a 35 on a Jeep ever. we ran the rubicon alot since that was our back yard on 29' or so I had sun valley's LOL. No one aired down too. BUT we stacked alot of rocks too. A lift only improves front/rear attack angle and break over angle. But tires do that and its the only way to lift the dif.
These days the bigger is better has some value. IF you are trailing at 4-5 rated trails 37+ is the way to keep the heep from grinding less on the bottom, stack less rocks. But 90% of the Jeeps the biggest thing they go over is a curb at the mall. so most of this and these treads are just for looks.
