Noticed no one has mentioned this yet in your first post you said you'll be using a 28 spline 8.8 is that enough to handle that size of tire probally would want to go with a 31 spline. Also not sure if ur planning on running the boggers with the truck 2wd if you are why not just put them in the back then a m/t in the front till the sas so you have less front end drag.

why dont you keep the 33's and spend that other money to SAS the truck? run 33's until next year so you can lift and run 37's+

It's definetly not enough to handle the wheel size, but I am going to run it until it breaks.

It's a good idea, but I think i'm going to run 37x13's even after I SAS, I might as well just get em now. I'm going to throw 5.13's in, so it shouldn't be too bad.

I should have SAS done by next summer, I'll start collecting parts soon, and I am getting a welder hopefully, for now though I'm bumming of a friends shop

It's definetly something to think about though! I have like 80 percent tread left.

Go with the boggers and the 5.13 and even a locking rear. I had a 88 f-150 with 9' of lift and 38.5 it was only 2wd but with them tire's i could go just about anythere. Just turn your rear tire's backward's so you will have traction to back up if it need be. not the best tire for sand but great for mud.

i would reccomend against the boggers... they are loud, wear fast, and heavy...
i would get a set of used boggers with some tread left and get to cutting on the tread and use em for offroad only tires and just get a set of 37s that will give ya that most mileage on road...
jus my 2 cents
