yes the wedges are cast,, no need to heat or weld on the actual wedges... did you mean the actual arms? yes you probably needed to heat the arms before welding

well i havent found a tire thats as good as the tsl sx, so it looks like i might be going boggers. super swamper has a lot of tires that are on back order so i dont have much options.

what about creepy crawlers and pitbulls will be just as hard to find as swampers right now because they have the same manufacturer.

pitbulls arent as good in the mud as a swamper. i havent heard much about the crawlers in mud. the first sx you posted is too skinny and i want to go new. yes i know im being picky.

krawlers are no swamper or bogger in the mud but there a killer all around trail tire that are butter than a mud terrain. i think they would compliment your c/o's in the front compared to a bogger

this truck will probably never see a trail. its too tall and the body is too nice to get all scratched up on trees. im building it for mud bogging.

tires are getting ordered tomorrow. im thinking about buying two used tsl sx's for the front and run boggers in the rear.

Mud bogging doesn't guarantee that you're pretty truck won't get messed up

your right, and id be stupid to think nothing will happen to my truck. look at a trail rig and look at a mud rig and tell me which has more dents and scratches. my trucks an 05 with 36,000 on it, im going to try and keep it as nice as i can.
