Congratulations, I also have a 2038R and love it. Even better now that I got rid of my R4 tires!
Maybe…you just needed BIGGER R4 tires like me! 😂

Now that I’ve logged some hours snow plowing and in the woods with my larger loaded R4’s (3series take offs) (no mowing yet) I can see why Deere doesn’t want this as an option. Our 2038rs are hamstrung with the smaller R4s. We (I) can’t get all the horsepower to the ground without spinning a tire. Bigger tires=less slippage for me and better contact/ride and all around usefulness. I’m going to have some stickers made up and put them on my tractor that say 3038r!

I know, I know, I’m still missing some hydraulic flow and lift capacity. Not the same. But for the $200 it cost me (paid $850 for the rears and $200 for the fronts, and sold my old rears for $850) my hybrid 3038r has meaningfully improved from stock. 👍
