I just picked up a 392 and still have a set of lower control arms from a mopar lift. I'll measure both if you guys are interested in the true lengths.
That would answer for everyone. Believe stock on 392 will be eye to eye 24” and mopar lift arms will be 24 1/4”.

I also wonder how the 37s BFGs would do since they are more like big 35s.

If the 392's are higher with the same LCAs, does anybody have a factory caster reading on them?
Mine is at about 4 degrees bone stock. It feels extremely stable and straight at any speed though. My old 3.6 sat at exactly 6 degrees with a 2" lift and mopar LCAs, which was a vast improvement from the stock ones.

Thanks man, glad to hear it tracks good. I thought maybe it would get a bit squirrelly with increased power and decreased caster.

It does feel much more precise, but also very sensitive to pulling with the crown of the road though. Again, not sure if it's due to the weight, or the new steering box.

Hoag is right on the money. Just measured my 392 front lower arm and Mopar lift arm P/N 68322798AA.

hope that info helps someone out.

Very surprised with that low of caster people are not complaining about wandering feel on the highway.

If your interested in the tire rubbing at full bump, wouldn’t you want to compare the uncompressed radius not the loaded height or diameter?
It should be compressed. It's probably fatter side to side, tho. The BFG KO2 and KM3 runs smaller while the KR2 and KX run big. On my SXS the 32" KM3s(utv specific) are 32" with the car sitting on them. So strange.
