    I have 40" gumbo mudder and I really like them they work well in the mud and on sand. They wear very long with normal highway use ( I have had my tires for over a year now and they still have half the tread). /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I am buying a set of Ground hawgs this weekend from txbluethunder so I don't know about them yet but if they are as good as my Gumbo Mudder I will be very happy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My 76 had 40" mudders on it. I liked them. they offered decent traction and I could air them down and still get decent sidewall flex. I have 44" hawgs on this truck. They are alot stiffer. I got them used. so i don't know if it's just becase they are older, but they don't air down as well and the tread is real stiff. I want to get a set of boggers and then use these on the road.
