Your hammer wasn't big enough



x2. Much stronger/ easier to throw on too.
Personaly from building mudders and such, I would use a 10in rim not a 8.5. Reason being its going to suck your sidewalls in pretty good and it could cause the bead to pop off sorta like running a 12in rim on a 12.5.

One of the guys i was talking to has 37/12.5/R15 with 15x8.5 rims. he says he's never popped a bead, and doesnt need beadlocks and he airs down LOW (I can remember what the number was, but it was between 5 and 10 PSI)

I have seen a couple pop of the rim from being aired down low etc everything from runing mud or climbing rocks. Maybe some rims/ tires like diff things not sure i always like to play it on the safe side.

He was saying that he's seen a lot of 10's pop a bead, but the 8.5's rarely do when runna a 12.5 inch tire.

I was researching the rough country lifts back when I had my BII. A few people were saying that they were having issues with the rough country brackets lining up with the factory holes.


IMO, you cant go wrong with James Duff, more expensive sure, but they only make lifts for RBV's
