    No experience here, but I would guess the tread on the 37s pictured would be better for rocks and mud. Either way, that's a shitload of tire you want to put under your truck.:eek:

    GOT COPE?'s truck on TTORA is the only 1st gen IFS I know of running 37"s.

    Even if they last longer, your steering probably won't.

    Good idea, I'm thinking of upgrading other power steering components myself as well (pump, cooler, ect.)

    I'm curious if Cope has been burning through CVs or not...

    Are you out of your mind???

    1.) First of all your asking us for advice on military tires on a public forum.

    2.) Your asking for someones experience on military tires which even if anyone has actually even used these first hand on a street much less in a combat zone, I'm sure they'll be more than strong enough in a civilian role. That is if even if the puny little V6 Tacoma can handle a tire like that without actually falling apart.

    Sorry but it's like trying to kill a mosquito with a stick of dynamite. It's absolutely useless.
