Irok's of course. I also saw BFG MT's and Nitto Mud Grappler's do well. (after I broke trail for them)

40" Creepy Crawlers @ 3-4 psi seemed to go just about anywhere. Air pressure was the key. Don't know who had stickys there.

Your jeep is VERY COOL! I was very impressed on how you could just creep through about everything. Just goes to show also that, its not just about the rig or tire, but driver skill and seat time. And yes tires aired down was the main key out there. I think any mud type tire air down works good for the snow.

Sticky tires are a softer rubber made for competition, or the real hardcore bad asses!
