some of the guys in arizona are breaking them when they are spoolin up and an inner axle snaps, the shock wave going back to the carrier takes them out?? jeeprecoveryteam's did the same thing....

The detroit is a strong unit. The problem is like Booger said, when a front axle pops, the recoil takes out the detroit. This problem doesn't exist with it in the rear axle though.

To answer your question, I'm pretty sure that they state in the waranty/instructions that the max tire size for any of their products is 33". :p
