YJsavage Heck yeah!! Moving to TN is a great idea. There's more wheeling places in TN and surrounding areas than anywhere on the right half of the country. Yeah, stick with 35's or 36's. 37's is you went all out with chromo's. Look up a few videos on Youtube next time you get a chance (shit creek, mountain city, callalente, windrock, Harlan... just for a start) You'll be packing your stuff to move like tomorrow!! LOL!!

nyvulcanman Most of the trails around upstate ny is dirt mud and a few rocks but been thinkin of movin to tenn don't know what they have so I think I stick with 35's for now

YJsavage It all depends on what terrain you run. If it's mud only, feel safe going with a 38. I run primarely slick rocks and use escessive amounts of skinny pedal so a 35 or 36 with a beadlock is about all mine can handle.

I have yet to break a 31 spline shaft. When they say "Dana 60 strength", they're not kidding. Do check the gear casing third member. Pull it and check it out very well for cracks. What I do is just put in an order for a nodular third member from a company like Strange. Order it with your choice of gears and locker. They'll ship it to you already assembled. All you got to do is drop it in. The "N" case is a lot stronger than the stock.

Have fun.
What size tire would u do u think would be good I was thinkin 35,s or 38,s with a soa set. I'm goin to start gettin everything that I can ready now so I don't have as much to do when I'm ready to do the swap
