Re: How do big tires stress axles?

its not the size of the tire persay it is what is done with the rig bigger tires usually mean harder wheeling which leads to needing a locker wich leads to i need a bigger motor which leads to broken parts we all call it jeep fever and once ya got it you cant go back but to answer your question the more unsprung weight you have (anything not held up by the springs like tires and wheels ) the more leverage you have now if ya drive like an 80 year old woman than you could have 44 inch tires with a dana 27 but if ya drive it like ya stole it 35 inch tires could break a dana 60

jeep the first 4 wheel drive the only 4 wheel drive
