yea, people see tsl and automatically think one tire. even a thornsuck is a tsl.

basicly any of tsl's are pretty good for mud. Other then the bogger the best tsl is the SX ? Everyone agree with that ?

I would agree with that. If I had to pick between boggers and sx's i would go with the sx's. they offer a better sidewall and lateral support on step hills.

yes the boggers have bad lateral support which is why you'll see a lot of custom grooved ones. even then a lot of folk run sx's up front and boggers out back to get good steering...

I have the TSL's 31X11.5's on the front and the TSL SX's 31X13.5's on the back the SX's are a good tire I highly recomend them. But I think I am going to get the tractor tires for the back or the Boggers and cut every other lug out. The SX's on the back are really worn out as you can see and they still get really good traction in the mud!

when side hilling or climbing a rock face on a angle the tire will be less stable, the truck will slide sideways.

I ran the tsl sx's and switched to the boggers....I have ran several sets of super swampers, bfg's, goodyears. Most of the super swampers are about the same other than the at's and the thornbirds. I like my tsl sx's since I would drive it on the street some but off road they are pretty close to the boggers.
