Damn man thats alot of mud. I like wheeling and mudding as much as the next guy, but I would never let my engine compartment to get like that. Your truck was real clean from what I have seen, and it will be hard to get it back that way! Especially your engine compartment.

I know I usually dont see responses like that from you since your always so kind so I had to joke about it. Dont mind me.

Your like the holy grail on this site, the god of lifted rangers so if something doesnt get your approval no one on here would buy it and put it on their rangers lol.

I'm not much of an AT fan, but I believe I've seen your setup beofre, and it is very nice.

To me, even bfg "mud terrains" are "all terrain" or street tires. Super swamper tsls, boggers, and tractor tires, are the only way anyone can hang in the mud down here...

It all depends on where you live too. The BFG A/Ts are awesome desert tires cause they work well in dry/firm/sandy conditions. If I lived up in WA (where Im from) I would be running M/Ts for sure
