    I have a brand new set of 44" TSL's, A guy wants to trade me a set of used only once on a trail set of 44" boggers, They look to be in good shape. A little rock rash on the edges. Do you think this is a good deal? I mostly Mud/ Trails.I heard that boggers wear fast. Any opinions??????????Which is a better overall tire...................................................................................................:)

    Only negative things I have seen and heard about Boggers are the tend to slide sideways in certain situations. Like on rocks, they dont have alot of side to side traction. And I have heard that they do the same when sidehilling on trails.

    HTH! :D

    A guy here had a set and they wore down in about 6-7 months, but that was on a DD

    My brother ran Boggers on his DD for a while....8,000 miles and they were bald. Wheeled like a champ though!

    For what you do I would do the trade. Is he interested in only trading 2? Boggers in the rear and TSL's up front are a good combo for trails and shallower mud so you can steer.

    As for mileage, I have 7K on my boggers right now and there is just a hair over 1/2 tread left.

    maybe hes building a crawler or trail rig and realized Boggers are a bad choice. I've talked to guys running them have have stopped on a trail and just slid sideways on thing mud on top of the trail.

    Could some groves be cut into Boggers to help with the sideways traction problem?

    He has a rock buggy and wants TSL's instead of Boggers

    Also the biggest problem is how to go about making the trade, He lives a 1000 miles away, Too far to drive. I don't feel comfortable shipping over 1400.00 worth of tires to someone I do not know. Thought about telling him to ship his and when I recieve his I will ship mine. he might not feel good about doing this Also....................................................................................................

    personally, After running boggers in the back and TSL's on the front, I dont want to ever have another tire on the rear other then a bogger.... but i guess it all matters on where the truck is going to be wheeled...

    Yah....that's where it get's tricky...

    If I were you...I'd run the TSL's....at least up front...
    I think your motor...will twist-up some front end parts...
    Especially...since you're running a Blown 540!!!!

    Plus...I think you'll like them better on the road...
