    Six hour roundtrip with trailer and returned with 1200 lbs in bed. (Sled wouldn't fit in trailer/height-wise) Ran great. Checked speed with GPS app on cell phone. 2 mph off at 65. 1 mph off at 40. I wonder how far off the stockers were ? I'll have to check this winter when they go back on for plowing.

      So 37s are as tall as you can go on a non XL prospector without rubbing?

        That is correct. The biggest tire you can stuff under there with our 3" DualSport Suspension system and without issues is a 37x12.50. If you go taller or wider you will definitely have rubbing issues.

          Plus, the XL package looks the business. But I think I'd definitely have rubbing issues if I tried to drive or park a Ram 2500 in west LA. I was thinking about the future but I'll probably have to stick with my aev wrangler for now.

            to the OP, your truck looks PERFECT. I love the way the wheels/tires look at stock ride height.

            I guess this begs the question - what does the dual sport suspension accomplish? Is it just to be able to fit 37s? Or is there expected ride improvement? I know a hallmark of the suspension is to keep factory springs, geometry, etc. I am asking because I have a Carli suspension system on my otherwise AEV converted truck. The slippery slope to 37s, regearing, towing/load rating concerns, etc. is starting to look undesirable vs. just remaining stock suspension or even the AEV (very reasonably priced) dual suspension.

              With the AEV suspension the truck is basically going to ride exactly the same as stock. Possibly a smidgen better from the shocks, but doubtful. Any ride improvement would be from the larger tires with less air pressure.

              You should be able to clear 37's with your carli suspension. How much taller is it?

                  Follow-up...

                  Just curious now that you have had some time and miles on the tires.... How are you liking that tire size?

                  Any others running AEV wheels on a stock truck. I got a 2016 PW and looking at new tires. Why not upgrade my rims while I'm at it.
