I'd kill for some Rockers. LTB's are not versatile enough. Might go with TSL's up front and boggers in the back. I'm not a huge fan of rocks but you get the point... Ags aren't the answer for trails, rocks, hill climbs.

Have 30k worth of titanium body lift/erector set installed and then say Im not man enough to move 200lbs. It gives you about an inch of lift but the ride and flex sucks.

are you ****in mad?

You do realize LTBs are very similar to the regular TSLs but have larger voids and lugs?

They are perfect trail, rock, hill climb tires.

meh, rock crawling is ghey, especially in a 12 foot tall truck


this might be a stretch, but i've been seeing sets of 49'' iroks popping up on my local c/l. idk how often you check yours, just a thought.

only played on rocks a little bit, but imho boggers sucked on them, and i also didn't care for boggers as trail tires either for what it's worth.

But seriously you could always just run the winch line on a tree branch power the thing up then roll it flat and drop it in the hitch. Or even better yet mount a ****** block/ pulley on top of winch near top center so it picks itself up flat for easier install.. Just an idea

I must be!! For some reason I was thinking of Iroks when I posted that. It's the Iroks I don't like, not LTB's. My apologies good sir!
