I agree, but I'll need to upgrade to 1 ton axles, and since the intent would be to use 1 tons from a 2005+, I'll need a minimm of 17" rim to clear the calipers. but even then, 44 boggers on 17s should look good.Personally, I think you can't beat the look of 15's with 44" super swamper tsl's.
Yep. Much better design on the 05+ super duties. I'd still truss it though.I agree, but I'll need to upgrade to 1 ton axles, and since the intent would be to use 1 tons from a 2005+, I'll need a minimm of 17" rim to clear the calipers. but even then, 44 boggers on 17s should look good.
That makes some good sense for some usage scenarios.I usually run separate tires on the street vs offroad - much cheaper and better to have good tires for each purpose... also helps I have tire machines and a lift at home. on the XJ it's 32s on the street and 33s offroad right now, going to move to 33/35 if the bronco does end up having an IFS and I'm stuck with my XJ. On my old rubicon I ran 35s on the street/37 trail, though finding a quiet, street thread 35 was a pain in the ass.
You don't have to have larger brakes. Especially if you're not racing it. The larger brakes are for heat management. I can't imagine heat being an issue in a vehicle like the Bronco versus something like a Mustang at the race track.The only problem with 17" wheels is that there are only a few tires that seem to be made in a load range C when you get to the larger sizes. Most seem to be at least D. And they are not cheap, even thought that seems to now be the most popular off-road wheel size. 15s are nice but you have to have larger brakes to stop a heavier tire/wheel and rig.
