29+ inner tubes for 29 x 3.0" tires

Guys and Gals, what inner tubes are you using for 29+ (Surly Knard 29 x 3.0"). Do you buy fat bike 3.0-4.8 tubes or just use standard 29er tubes?

Surly does a 29"x3" tube, but I've had great success just running a standard 29er tube. Mount 'em up tubeless and skip the tube all together for improved ride quality!

Thanks - well these are standard 23mm rims (not the 35mm min Surly recoomends). I may wait till I build a Velocity P35 Blunt rim up before trying tubeless.

Standard tubes work. I had a knard on the stock front wheel on my Fargo for a year and it worked. I just had a rabbit hole built for it a couple weeks ago.
