    Well give it a little while... alot of people are at work or school right now, and you only gave people 25 minutes to post up... most people can't go through half the pics on their computer in that time.

    Back on topic. I hear they wear like iron. How many miles do most people get out of these things? How do they do in mud?

    Oh yeah and how are those 10 bolts and fenders holding up?

    hey bro....actually i post that about 14 hours ago. i am in iraq and its after midnight here. so i just thought i would get my post back to the top so people would see it cause i know its day time there.

    so yeah...they do last quite a while. and IMO they are great in the mud and unless i can find a way to run 54" boggers without lifting my truck to the sky (without taking off a lot of sheetmetal either) i will be using 44" groundhawgs. as for those whimpy 10 bolts. no they havent lasted. i have went through four sets of spider gears and one carrier in the rear and twised a shaft in half in the front as well as detroyed a th350. 40" tires and a lot of big block muscle dont work well and puny non upgraded drive train parts. i knew that before i did it. i was just impatient as most people are. i do have the one ton stuff at home and a better drivetrain waiting on me. too bad its gonna be two years before i leave here and get back to do it. as far as the fenders go...they have a custom look to them now!!!!! not intentionally. they are going to get trimmed as well.

    hey manny,

    i think they are just as good if not better than tsl's. they also last longer than tsl's. however i would say the bogger is a better all out mud tires but if you get sideways on a hill they provide no left/traction and they dont last that long either. so, the GH meets my needs a lil better. but like i said earlier if i can fit 54" boggers then its game on
