    Re: Big Tires... whos got\'em

    I'm runnin' 40 gumbo mudders right now. And I'm thinking of going to a set of ground hawgs, (same size) or possibly some 38-39" swampers.(Hey Pureinsanity,38.5" swampers are actually taller than 40 gumbo mudders. Not sure about the hawgs, but the're made by the same company.)

    My 82 K30 has 39" Mickeys. We just installed some 46" Firestone Field & Turf tires two weeks ago, just to see what it looked like. It was HUGE!!! They barely fit with 6" suspension and Bushwacker cut-out flares. I have some pics of the truck in the sand pit mud bogs. Awesome pics, now if only I can scan them........

    Re: Big Tires... whos got\'em

    actually,40s and 38 swampers are pretty close in size i just prefer the xtra width and my xperienceis hawgs last longer(provided you dont smoke em too much and rotate em)i smoked a set of hawgs to death in about 6-8 months i was young,and i could so i did!im not sure about the hawg/mudder thing(hawg denman/mudder gateway)

    Re: Big Tires... whos got\'em

    bluebeast,i dont think hawgs will dig as good as boggers.ive got tsl's on mine.i like the xtra width,but boggers wear too fast on a heavy truck,otherwise id get them.ok regarding the motor im goin off of an article in hotrod or chevy hiperformance i dont remember which,they built a motor almost identical to what i was building,theirs had a touch more cam lift(like .10thousands) and less comp,with the same vortec heads.they dynoed right at 400or above.i could actually be disapointed but the motors were almost identical. if anyone has the comp program and would run it id be thrilled.
    here it is :
    350 stock bore
    9.5:1hyperutectic pistons
    powdermetal rods(GMs newer rods)
    vortec heads
    edel.perf RPM int
    750CFM holley(w/race mods)
    can specs:450"int461"ehx 224 dur@.050int&ex 291int287exh sae dur
    114*lobe cent
    their cam was a 460 460 i think and their comp was 9.0so it was real similar to mine they also had no hi dollar exotic parts the cam specs arent all that impressive IMO but the heads are killer.ovaltrack friend of mine claims they out flow the old 202s.if anyone has the program please run it.id love to see what it really is.well ive gone this far heres the rest of the blazer superlift 6"kit w/ 3"body th350 trans w/2500 stall conv and shift kit 4:88 gears(woulda gone 5:13 if i had o/d)that and i couldnt find 5:13s for a 14 bolt flowmasters 40 series w/ 21/2"pipes38"tsl's on 12"alum wheels soon upgrades inc 14" wheels intstall 14 bolt (in my shop)8 lug conv on front and 2 more inches shaved marker lites late model s10 door handles at the bottom of doors shaved driprails smooth the top pearl white paint w/ graphics(im a body /paint tech)and yes ill dump it in the mud and run it through the trees just not into trees(i hope)im building it to look good,run better and be able to make 6hr trips to hunt and back.and not get stuck while im there(i might get a winch too just in case) man i hope all this fits i better close any more ??? ill be here.
