Dents and scratches aside, aren't you worried about serious engine damage? Mud bogs are all about high rpms, you've gotta keep on it to get through.

I don't doubt your skill or anything, I'm just worried about you getting sunk and overheating the motor.

im not worried about the motor one bit. and if it blows, ill upgrade. as for tractor tires, ill be driving this truck on the road, and those would kill my axles.

ill make a bet that it doesnt happen first time out. iv seen plenty of 44's at the bogs hold up to more then iv got. i agree with you that it will break, just not as easy as most people think.

another thing you could do is get some bald boggers and send them threaded with the bogger pattern but insted of them in shap of "V" tell em to make them straight. they work great for offroad and u can ask for deeper threads. he has some 35's like this on a samurai and he does compete and goes great on very deep mud without chains.
