IDK i have heard good things about ground hawgs. Buddy of mine from school has friends with them, he's got TSL's and others with boggers. He things hawgs are better. He said they are really really loud on the road but last a long time cuz the rubber is so hard. I guess they are a really heavy chunk of rubber though really need some horsepower to churn mud with them. There not ever around cuz they are old school and have since been replaced with boggers.

I like boggers better. The ground hawgs are SO hard of a compound. For mud they do alright, but they get slick real easy...boggers FTW

Destination m/t ftw. haha. Ground hawgs are more of a mud bog only kind of tire. Idk if i would run those on the road too much, way too loud. Boggers are loud too, but not as loud as ground hawgs.

Still that work that they did to it was absolutely disgusting. IMO if it is an off-road only truck, regardless if it is built for mud or rocks or trails, it should be built better than a car that only goes on the road. There are a lot more stresses put on a vehicle off road, than on the road. I guess you could say that the only person he is going to kill would be himself, but there are always people watching, standing where they shouldnt be.

You got that one opposite lol...boggers are horribly loud compared to hawgs. Boggers also rattle the heck out of the truck...way worse than hawgs. I don't really like ground hawgs much...they are SOOO hard of a compound

hard compound but big deal. that way you'll 40-50k miles outta them. Unless you plan to rock crawl with them...who cares. My Buckshots are so stiff i can run 5psi and they barely squat.
