    We had one member here. I think it was @E63 who managed to do get a 37 under his truck. You'd have to look at his build thread to see how. i can't remember exactly

    IIRC he was running KM2's right? A true 37". I think he tried airing down and compressing with a ratchet but still wouldn't fit. But there are members who stuffed the original KO 37" just barely and that was 36.3". I'm wondering how the KO2 will fit since it's now 36.5". A tiny difference but I remember the 36.3" was a reeeeaaally tight fit. Only one way to find out! Time to upgrade..

    I found his post helpful. My truck is mostly used for city use and towing my Polaris RZR, so it is good to know that 37's will work as long as I don't take it off-roading. I can swap out cheaper rims and 35s when I do that.

    Nice wheels and 37's in the streets, stock wheels and 35s in the dirt.

    37's do have some benefits offroad, but it's work to get them to clear without issues when you're running stock fenders.

    Yes, it is me. It required cutting off exhaust before the axle, new rear bumper and hitch to curve around girth of tire, cutting and plating of frame around shackles. Its a snug fit! RaceCo did the work with input from Corey and Jarrett. Its great, allows me to keep all my gear locked up under the F1 cover including a second 37" spare.

    All documented in my build thread.

    Now that you mention that, I forgot to mention I do have a turn down exhaust before the axle. I honestly cant remember if I had the 37's or the exhaust first though.

    Sorry to take you back to 2016, but would really like an update on your thoughts running the KO2s 2 years later. I have 35" KO2 on my truck now, going to put 37 on next week but guy at tire shop said "I can get you KO2s or I can get you a "good" tire". Said they dont balance out well. Any thoughts on this? Any thoughts to ever not run 37s again?
