I was just sitting here thinking to myself, how does each have it's advantage compared to the other. So what do you think?
I think full size is the way to go.I ran stock 1/2 ton axles and wheeled hard for 7 years with no problems.I cant count how many jeeps with broken axles Ive past on trails.Most of the trails Iv been goin on lately are trails that jeep guys said I wouldnt fit on and the onyl people I see hung up are the jeeps.And as far as towing,why?I can fit all my camping gear,parts,tools,food,water,and fire wood in the back of my Blazer.Originally posted by high5:
<STRONG>full size rigs have many weak points in my opinion. too wide! well for most of the areas i wheel anyway. they have trouble on the tight trails. people try it but usually go to a smaller platform. another thing is if you wheel semi hard you will need 1tons. yes me and others run the big boys in smaller rigs but the stock axles break like tooth picks on the full size rigs. here is one...how about towing? you'll need a big trailer and a big tow rig. big heavy rigs are harder to tow. these are just a few of the issues i have seen with people running the big rigs on the trails.</STRONG>
You know, last time I was in Tellico that rock was only high enough (or ground eroded enough) that I was able to pivot on it with my rock sliders (and I was only on 33's at the time).Originally posted by Grim Reaper:
