    Ride Height & Weight Placement

    It seems that those who go with the larger tires, would offset the center of gravity on the Summit, making it more pron to flip while going up hills. And extra weight on the Summit can be a good thing or bad depending on its placement. Got any input on this subject?

    It might a little but the added weight of the wheels would be at the lowest point if the truck. And to help a little you can lower your body.

    I lowered the body and run slightly smaller tires (trencher x) than stock. Those two things helped a lot lowering the center of gravity.

    If you do only slow speed stuff (crawling, trailing) you could add wheel weights as the "real" crawlers and scalers use.
