New shoes on mud truck

Well I found me a good deal on some stuff and just couldn't pass it up. Although i'm not much for 20's I couldn't do much about $150 a piece brand new in the box. Now could I pass on these tires for $125 a piece. Before yall go to bashing and what not I picked these up so I could haul the wheelers to the local rides and not have to worry about getting stuck when it ever rains here. The atv parks around here get muddy and not just on the trails. Here is a before shot of the truck.



Yes is does get taken offroad



And here are the new shoes.

46x15x20 michelin xml's mounted on 20x10 Prova alloys.





And now from the night I got caught in town.


Specs: 1990 F150 with 300 I6 with 389,000 miles, Mazda 5 speed with BW 1345 transfer case for the low range, D60 front with 5:38's and limited slip, Corp 14 bolt rear with locker and 5:38's, Custom lift using random parts here and there, on board air with rear bumper for air tank, Custom front bumper with 15k warn winch, 44x18.5x16.5 tsl's or 46 michelins. As soon as I find some more material I'll be installing the divorced transfer case for lower drive shaft angles and twin stick. Love it hate it just let me know what you think.

BTW, you need to squeeze a big block down in that thing! Then it will be even more sick.

No need for a big block. I can build a diesel with the same weight and more power.

I have a list here to make a 12v push 900 HP at the rear wheels with the stock pistons and crank. 24valves are too expensive to find around here.

I like it. Functional. Just enough lift for the tires and a decent set of axles under it.

Thanks. I built it because thats what we do around here. I drive my ranger daily for the better milage but not the greatest. I drive this truck for offroading, recovery, and anything else I need it to be for. We have trucks around here on 54-65 inch tractor tires so I am not worried about being the biggest. We offroad monster trucks all the time and they do fine for what we do. No rocks around so none to worry about. I have had the tires hit the fenders but it actually took some flex for it to do that.
