What does a rocker or a trep run compared to whatever else? I'm sure they're pretty fawking heavy too.
The 10 ply Iroks in the 40" range are listed from 95 to 100 lbs according to Interco's site.

The 41" rockers are listed from 110 to 118 lbs according to Pitbull's site.

From FourWheeler.com Not sure what those wheels weigh though.

Radial Maxxis Trepadors The 40x13.50R17LT Maxxis Trepador Radial weighs 1281/2 pounds on a 17-inch Walker Evans beadlock.

Bias-Ply maxxis trepadors The 40x13.50-17LT bias-ply Trepador Competition tires weigh a hefty 140 pounds on a 17-inch Walker Evans beadlock.

So when you stepping up to 40s?
Good to hear, just a pet peeve when people roll with no spare. I got stuck buying a new one bc I couldn't find a used one at the time.

I would love to get 40's but just had purchased these 37's. Its gonna be a while unless a miracle happens.

The odds of getting a flat are much higher that the odds of breaking a leaf. And I bet I can find and source a chevy 63 main leaf faster and cheaper than you could (if) source a 40" tire in the right rim size in a pinch

The more important question is - will it fit the OEM spare tire carrier??

Can't believe this thing is/was a Tacoma.

At least we got some shit done on Supra TTs truck over the weekend.



Installed a Badlands 12000lb winch
Replaced a couple driveshaft u-joints
Wookie strength carrier bearing mod
Took the d44 down the street to get the new r&p and spool installed
Front driveshaft was contacting the tranny crossmember when the driver side was flexed, so I clearanced it further and used some scrap 1/4" 4130 plate to reinforce it.

Got Rays (oneup) Taco on the road. Well, sort of. We still need to get the exhaust done and run hi ARB lines but then it's ready to hit some trails. Just took it to get some gas in it. He said it ran smooth and tracked straight.

Heres a short video with me following behind him from the gas station.

I think it matters mainly in your area. I waited for a few years for my waggy 44 to pop up. I paid $340 for it with 4.88Ts and high steer arms on it.
