This place is too divided. For the past year my Pugsley has been set up half fat with a 27.5x2.5 in the rear and 26 x 4 in the front. I get the stability and braking of the fat front. The acceleration is way better with the narrower tire in the back.

You are doing just fine. Either fat or plus and good to go.

Haha. I'm still 4.6/4.8 for winter, but dropped to a 2.8 up front, 3 rear for the first time in a long time. That's as narrow as I go ;)

OP, What rim are you able to run a 2.5" tire on a Pugs?
A take off that was in the back room of my local shop. He thought it may have came off a Salsa Timberjack, we were lucky enough to be able to dish it over for the offset. I don't keep up with the details, all my bikes are old.
