I ordered the 37 Performance Package. Personally I like the look of the 37's better, but that's just my humble opinion.
Different strokes for different folks or in this case different tire sizes for different folks. Hat's off to Ford for giving us the two options.

I totally agree. I DO NOT like the look of the little 35" and the rake that truck has. Wouldnt have ordered one if there wasnt the 37" option, but again, just my preference...

I also thought of something that would affect MPGs. I know last gens wheels there was a 5 lb difference in the beadlock (37 lbs) wheels to the cast wheels (32 lbs). I’m guessing when they do the MPGs on the 35s they do it with the cast wheel since that’s the standard wheel. So in addition to the extra 1lb of tire weight you have the extra 5lb of wheel weight of weights are similar on the Gen 3s. On top of the bigger tire. There’s a newish USA made KMC wheel that only weighs 25 lbs instead on the 37 lbs of the Ford forged bead lock. I wonder how that would affect the get up and go as well as the MPGs on the 37.

37 does not have a “upgraded frame” it’s literally just modified to accommodate a 37” spare tire lol
