    Alright I have been running 36x15.50 atz's on 16x12 mt wheels forever and it's time for a change. I just traded for a set of 18x12 fuel hostages and I'm planning on running 37x13.50s, but I just tried on a set of 37x15.50s on 15x10 steel wheels and I'm really digging that. The only reason I want to move up to 18s is so I can lose the spacer.... Opinions? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1361132623.377131.jpg

    Actually stock gear and a 6 spd. You would be surprised, it is still pretty quick. I do want gears though

    I agree but I would have to run a 1.5" spacer

    Agreed. I would imagine that this truck also gets about the same MPGs as an M1 Abrams tank.

    I still get 15 mpg with 37's, and I'm running really heavy beadlocks too. 4.88's help a LOT.
