6.5" Lift & 37's or 4.5" Lift & 35's
As most of you know I've ran the ICON 4.5" lift and 35's for a couple of years.
Grew tired of that and went 6.5" and 37"s now I'm not happy with the ride or performance - it seems it was on the edge with 3.73's now the truck seems to not like the added height in crosswinds and wanders a bit over uneven roads can't take my hands off the steering wheel. I'm not sure if this is due to the 13.5 on 8.5" rims or just that the tires are bigger enough to make a difference and highlight a maintenance issue...
So I either need to do the Redbox replacement, ball joints, tie rod ends Etc.
Or leave the lift in and go back to 35's BTW Mickey Thompson has agreed to replace my (5) 37 13.5 18's with all new P versions of the Baja ATZ Woo Hoo which i'm thinking may be part of my dislike -they have a separated belt or some other quirk that won't balance correctly.
I love the look of the truck and how it sits on 37's but it's just no joy to drive long distances.
All that said should i opt for replacement (5) 37's get new wheels and sale them for enough to cover (4) 35's or just go with (5) 35's and hope the fun comes back.
Appreciate any input.
