just back from the club comp. looks like a shackle reversal kit in is the near future and i need to repair the skip plate...it seems as if the transfer case is no longer attached and is denting the bottom of the tub pretty good. also im getting peer pressure to get the drivers seat mounted to solid metal.

all in all a good weekend

front springs replaced today. and skid plate has been re-niggger rigged for temporary use. i think after the mustache run the next round of surgery will begin (since it will be on rollers anyway)

im also going to stop promising pics since i cant follow thru from now on they will just show up randomly when my phone co-operates

Any particular beef with the skinny Boggers? I have the same set....I've only run them in mud, never really tried them for crawling anything, but they are lighter and taller than my 37" MT/R's so I'm curious how they do on the trail? I see you run yours backward....any reason? Or accident?

I have a couple friends up here that might be interested in your Boggers and wheels....

They are great for mud, we all know that. The problem I have is they lack in side bite, I always lose my line and find myself in a pickle. And with out bead locks at low pressure they burp and lose the bead too easy (partially aluminum rims too I think)

I'm going to get bead locks and a better all around tire

and on the backwards thing...thy work at silver better that way and i have heard if you run the fronts backward they do better in the rocks. so i figured id give it a shot, i dont know if i can really tell a big difference or not. but they are heavy so they will stay that way for now

Heavy? 38.5x11-16 Boggers weigh 69lbs each...16/35-16.5 Boggers weigh 89lbs each. I have my 38.5's on OEM Chevy 3/4-ton 16x6.5 aluminum wheels that weigh about 8lbs each....I can notice the power difference between the Boggers and my 37" MT/R's on H2 wheels....you may want to consider weight when you're selecting your new tire wheel combo.

I probably won't run mine in anything but mud, but I always wonder if I should take them with me when I go places, thanks for the feedback.
