Now here's a question, may be a silly one. Can larger tires be put in the back (say 37's) and smaller ones in the front (say 35's) of a 4x4? I would imagine not, as it would probably throw off the diff. Any ideas?
you need to put lower gears in the rear, like say, if you have a 3.55 in the front, do a 4.10 in the back.(not exact, but you can find a tire size - to gear ratio formula on this site i think)
but why would you do that?
The only way you can do this is to make a gear swap in one of the axles. If you increase tire size for one axle, you need to change a gear set. You can either go with a tall gear in the front or a lower gear in the back.
Not unless you have locking hubs.. and only use 4wd in the real sloppy stuff.. I'm not even putting my front shaft in til I can get some 35's for it to match the rear. I don't want to accidently break parts when I'm not playing around.
