4+3 with 32” tires and rock crawling?

I feel like I already know the answer, however, am I asking for blown eps fuses and other issues? Id really like the height gain and extra width but if 5+2 is that much better ill go that route. Thanks!

Re: 4+3 with 32” tires and rock crawling?

you would actually lose ride height with 4+3 due to more leverage on springs.

4+3 not good for front. While not without some disadvantages, I went with 32's, 4+3 rear, 5+2 front, works for me!

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!

Well Ive been talking with hunterworks about the duraclutch and I think im going that route. For the gear reduction im lost, I know I want high range reduction to run like stock and I for sure want a little deeper gear in low.

The Duraclutch is a phenomenal setup. I wish they had it for the turbos.

Is it that it just cant handle the extra torque or is it a different design?

Re: 4+3 with 32” tires and rock crawling?

I would start with clutching. Stock clutch setup and maintained will work great. I recommend slp magnum force clutch kit as itís tunable without removing anything. Iíve run 27-32Ē bfg with the same kit. Ran 32Ē for 2 years without issues. Yes occasional power steering reset but that can happen with stock setup. Wicked built makes heavier duty power steering unit, donít do the Saturn based kit, too many problems.
