    long throw rockers and tire diameter are things to consider. i bet a merv with summit tires on it almost touches and a summit with merv tires comes so close

    Technically using bigger tires on the merve wouldn't help. Would just make the distance the same but the proportions different. If you want a rock crawler you need lots of articulation and higher stance. If you want something for general off roading or medium speeds on road then you need about mid range articulation. If it's just going to be for high speed only on road driving then little articulation and low center of gravity so it hugs the road best.

    That was the point I was making by saying you can't make a judgement by looking at pictures of two different trucks with two different suspension travel length and two tire sizes
