Who is running 37s?

Trying to get as many pics as possible to see if this is where I plan to be. I've seen a few on here but not many. I have noticed that some of the leaf sprung vans have the front axle moved way forward for clearance, while the coil sprung vans are more centered in the wheel well. I know that it's for the way the different suspensions move, but more pics would help me to better decide which route I would like to go. Thanks.

Alan's (SMB West owner) new van has 37's. However, it is so new it doesn't look like he has been off-road with it yet.

Re: Who is running 37s?

I have them (37/13.5-20's on 10" rims) ready to go on. I had to put it off a couple of weeks so that I can do my yearly trip into Canada. My 8in. kit from Ujoint arrived today but my Axles are not ready and will not be until Monday and I leave next Wed.

Is there a thread on here where he has some pics posted? Would sure like to see it. I've checked out the Badger's and it is looking pretty awesome. I can't find any side shots of it though to get a better view of the front wheel placement and overall height.

Re: Who is running 37s?

Anyone else care to respond? I know there are a few more than have commented thus far. Your input is greatly appreciated and will certainly help me make the decision to sell my truck and camper to go with a self contained expedition vehicle. Thanks.

When we were there in May we went thru his rig pretty close and he had 325/65/18's on it then (looks the same to me) which is a 35" tire. He told me that the 35's rub with articulation quite a bit. Are you sure these are 37"?
