From stock? Nah.

I'll tell you the retail costs and exclude any sales pricing. :rockon:

Umm, but you did spend as much.

Post some pictures from the side. What does that tire and wheel combo weigh? One of the major downsides of 40's and beedlocks is the weight, I think my wheel and tire combo is 140lb each.

Did you spend less than $3200 dollars?

I'm ahead still. Sorry, bro. :thppt:

So, these are 3lbs less than my 37 X3's per tire.

I'll be heading back out to Portland in February here.

These things have just been a huge surprise. Feels like cheating honestly.

Cheating performance wise or not really the size marked on the side? Putting 38's on Ram trucks is pretty well known at this point. I think Don was running 38's in 2015.
