Re: 4+3 with 32” tires and rock crawling?
I had a XP 900 running 4+3s and loved it. Never an issue with anything after more than 4,000 miles.
Now, I have an XP4T and started out with 5+2 because I was all in the head about scrub. I moved to 4+3, because my aftermarket high clearance forward A Arms would cause the wheel/tire to rub on the lower shock mount because of the 5 in the 5+2. The 4+3 is more stable on off camber situations in crawling. It also looks better IMHO. The argument with 4+3 is scrub. Because you should be running lower tire pressures crawling, you don't "feel" anything extra from the scrub feedback. Just keep an eye on ball joints. But, I've never had a problem. And, if you feel you have an issue with ride height, just adjust your preload. I crawl 75% of the time and would never go back to 5+2.
The next question is how is your machine turning 32s? That's going to be a clutch question. It really depends on your driving style and how heavy your tire/wheel combo is. You may consider at least a clutch kit, if you're crawling. But, a gear reduction is the way to go. It's just more money.
Let me know if you're heading to Sand Hollow to rock crawl!
