Yah but since you said 5x4.5 I figured we were talking about Wranglers. I agree, too much tucking tires. But I did put a set of 32's on a stock wrangler and it had like no room at all for flex, it was ugly but he did some stuff to get 2" of lift and its better now.

yea the Wranglers don't have the flange hub either......the Warn's are strong hubs...weither it be on the smaller bolt pattern or the larger pattern.....yes the larger the pattern the stronger it will be, but you can only get so strong and so much out of an axle......you got to stay within your budget

If your going to stick with your 35's and just want serviceable bearing then just get the 5 on 4.5.
oh yeah im sticking with 35s.

hopefully not lol!

for $1100 you could just buy an old school 44 and weld the mount you need on it.. and also why spend that kind of cash on the D30 when your goin to a 44 anyway?
