I am sure you do not "wheel" that thing do ya? Seems like a full stuff would be fender death for sure.

I would not blame you if you didn't, thats a damn sharp rig. I bet you grin ear to ear when you walk outa the store and see that thing, I would.

Like driving by a bldg with reflective windows and seeing the reflection and saying "damn nice truck".

I've never run the boggers on the street, but I have run the TSL's on my daily driver. No issues and the tire wear was great. You can't even buy them anymore, but the brand new Buckshot mudders I bought lasted a whopping 6 months before they were completely bald. (I guess that's why you can't buy them anymore)

I think with your limited road use, you'd be fine with any tire you wanted. I've been wheeling for decades. I can't remember a single time I even tried to balance a tire bigger than 35". I never had a problem with vibration. Not that you could feel a vibration anyway on a 40"-44" tall mud tires with a cammed up engine. The truck shook like crazy regardless of tire balance.

....ah memories.

i don't wheel it hard... I've had it out in the woods messing around, and had it on the sand drag track and stuff... after the black paint turned out so nice i can get myself to beat on it too much. Ive got another truck for that.

Blown 331 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Anyone ever runs boggers on rear and TSL's on front? I know a few guys that do that. They claim when turning, the mud slides right through the lugs on the boggers. With TSL's on front they can turn a lot better and just run boggers on the rear.

I've seen a lot of that on a lot of different mud trucks so it must help some.

No yet, but its just a around the farm truck and has not seen any hard core wheeling/rock slinging since its work in progress.

I am making a flat bed out of a ol aluminium headache rack off a tractor trailer for it and will probably also end up taking out all the glass and the doors off when I put the in cab roll bar in.....

Projects....

That big steel cross plate was when it had a flat bed on it for the goose neck trailer ball. What extra fuel tank do you see, or are you seeing the rust/grey primer rear tank?

It has only one tank on it now, unless the shop trolls did something.....
