Is that an event they put on every year in Romeo? I've never been to a truck show or mud bog. What's it like and do you know what the requirement are? Thanks.

Truck Show & Mud Bog in Romeo

This one is put on by Romeo Off Road. I picked up a flyer at a local parts store. I don't know if they are running clases or what. I posted their phone number in my previous post. I have not herd of a mud bog in this area in a long time. I think I will put my truck in the show and whatch everybody else run.I would love to put my 79 in but at this time its all show a no go till next year.It was just painted last month and Iam in the final stages of reassembly. Next year I will be ready for mud.

Truck Show & Mud Bog in Romeo

They break the classes up,running first to last like this:

FACTORY STOCK. nothing larger than 36" tire,street legal,no non-factory traction devices, must have exhaust and original displacement engine (too bad for the 460 powered fords)

PRO STREET.Open exhaust allowed, must have dash and lights ect(no gutting)must have stock frame,working suspension,radiator in front of engine,no nitrous.

MODIFIED.gutting allowed,nitrous allowed,you know...modified


CUTS:anything goes


OPEN: Anything goes


TRACTOR TIRES.Only need two tractor tires-but must run DOT legal fronts if using two(no cuts)

The prostreet class runs different tire sizes as follows:

33"and smaller
36"and smaller
40"and smaller
44"and smaller "and smaller" meaning if you think your'e bad enough you can challenge up to a higher class

Modified runs 40" then 44"

No tire size reqirements for other classes

hope this helps. I listed dates and times in the "events and happenings" forum. Post is titled "mudbogging in michigan"
If you want to go let me know, I'll give you directions
