The Sidekick rear has the same strength axles as a Sami axle. Will have a hard time keeping up to 35's.

I run 16/35 Boggers now, and I really like them. They work well everywhere here in the deep south. I am curious how the 38.5" SXs are gonna flex on my 2300 lb truck. I know they are stiffer than the boggers. Damn the decisions....

Sx's, I've seen the same issues with the Boggers. No lateral traction, need to be grooved.
