    just like the title...where would the boggers last longer at? i would be putting TSLs on the other end because there cheaper to replace...i will be getting some thornturds this weekend for free(38x14.5x15) so the fenders will be cut out accordingly to fit the boggers and/or TSLs in even a 42" size...so how long will boggers last in front compared to the rear?

    are you talking for a trail rig only?
    or a street driven truck?

    i dont think boggers will last long on either corner if on pavement...

    now if it is for offroad performance.. id say back as they dig like hell and if ya put them on the front.. they are gonna dig ya to china..... and possibly break parts :bow:

    If you change your mind they will last a lot longer on the rear. Lots of people run the boggers rear for forward momentum and TSL's front for turning ability. Hope that helps some.

    Tried to send a PM, but couldn't. Someone mentioned you were looking for a GM 2wd steering box. I have one in San Francisco from am 88 Burb. $50 with all the 2wd linkage you want!

    Let me know.

    What do you need a picture of? The box is off the truck, all the linkage is still hanging from the truck. Do you want a picture of the linkage or the box or both?
