The stock tires are the Duratracs, 33". Wheels are 17". It is common knowledge that the 2014+ will fit 37's but may requiring some light cutting/modifications. I'm guessing it depends on whether the tire actually measures 37" or something like 36.5".

We are planning a trip with Power Wagons in Moab in April. They really recommend 35's+. What tire would you run for snow, mud, sand, and Moab. Because I want it all! Is there a place online I can see actual tire diameters?

Honestly I would recommend sticking with the Duratracs. And I believe that 1010tires.com has a way to bring up a tires true size.

I just put Nitto Ridgegrapplers on my Ram. 315/70/17 and they are an E rated tire, they're tread is similar to the Duratrac's in being somewhere between an all/mud terrain tire. I've maybe put 500 miles on them in rain, snow, dry, gravel and so far have seemed to be a very solid tire. I purchased mine through Discount Tire and was about $1150 out the door for them.

We put the Ridge Grapplers on our 2500 Ram truck here at work. For one, the size we got the load rating was much higher than others in the same size. I've towed our company trailer with the truck From Socal and Vegas a couple times now and they seem to be working out well. I was happy with their performance towing in the shit weather too.

Ridge Grapplers, a hybrid between mud and a/t appear to be the fresh new hotness. Cooper STT Pro is another new hotness for light weight, more aggressive m/t, but still retaining great road manners. John you had mentioned the STT Pro to me some months ago. Initially I counted them out, because I got some bad internet intel on actual size, but they run close enough to true size in 37". Those will end up on my CJ project. Ridge Grapplers will go on my truck next time I need tires.

The STT pro is another awesome all around road/off-road use tire, but definitely MORE mud terrain than the Ridge Grapper.

I ran the Duratracs on my Ram (35s) and my JKU (also 35s), love that tire. I'm currently running 37" Ridge Grapplers on the JKU and loving them. The only reason I switched was they don't make the Duratrac in 37". I'd readily buy either again...

I have no complaints regarding the duratracs on my 99 Ram 2500. The left rear took a 16 penny nail in the outermost tread block on the way to KOH. After applying some window washing fluid at a random gas station, It didn't seem to leak so I left it.

I would get the Ridge Grappler for what you are describing. If it's a one trip to Moab, and street truck the rest of the time,I've run Terra Grapplers on my last and current truck.

Another worth considering is the Wrangler MTR. These Goodyear tires have strong sidewalls, making them great for rock crackling and in the mud.
