    I think I'll mount mine on the rock sliders at each end.

    My fronts are mounted right by the frame where the front bumper brace connects, and the light is angled forward. and my rears are mounted on the frame angled to point in front of the rear tire. Sorry I dont have any pics, Later

    WOW! Great pictures! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Great ideas also everyone else! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I see you have Boggers on your truck Bowtie, did the grooving help with traction? I've been thinking of doing similar grooving if I do indeed get a set of boggers. Everyone I've talked to about the tires says they're great as long as you don't want to turn!? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif So did it help with that?
    Keep the ideas coming guys.

    to tell you the truth, it's helped out. on wet rock is where i noticed the difference.

    also it all depends on what type of wheeling you prefer. if your main terrain will be rock, then i hear that the TSL or the SX will be the better tire. if it's mud, then you can't beat the bogger. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    now the turning issue, for me, out on the trail i get a workout everytime. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif these tires or any tire this size will be a PITA to turn. i just need to spend some cash and buy the redneck ram set up from www.westtexasoffroad.com and be done with it.

    Hey Aaron, how's it goin.... Too bad you didn't look at mine or Rob's in Moab. Anyway, rear framerail near bumpstops, front section of the tub where I cut out the the wheelwells, and the front bumper supports. You may be able to see them on some of my readers rides pics or Rob's pics.

    Wherever you put em, keep em tucked in tight and hidden, unless you like to replace em all the time....
