    Thats right thats all fl has mud and sand but I think wide tires are better in the sand and its more of a prefrence in mud or how you have your rig setup

    [/ QUOTE ] Both. For my app, I see more mud up in the Black Hills National Forest then rocks. So wide works pretty good for me, and it looks cool. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif We do have pleanty of rocky trails around here, but I tend to stay mostly on the muddy ones in the hills, or out in the badlands. So I guess I'm more of a mud guy then a rock guy.

    If it doesn't crawl, it belongs at the mall.

    [/ QUOTE ] Oh HELL NO !!!! I grew up in western Iowa / eastern Nebraska. We didn't have any rocks, all we had was mud. There is something to be said for slinging mud all over your truck. I think the word is WooHoo, that's FUN !!!!! Now if I'd grown up playing on the rocks, I might feel differently. But I think MUD is FUN.

    mud = cleaning

    air lift rocks into your state. Mud and sand are not for me unless I am sitting on top of a dune watching Dogman go perpendicular to the ground on a dune face and keep going.

    [/ QUOTE ] Clean it once in the spring, and then once in the fall. Not that bad. Most of the big chuncks will fall off on thier own. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Go down to the truck wash and let them high pressure wash it.

    If your going for look get whatever you think looks good. If your going for performance and mostly run mud and sand then you want a wide tire for a large contact patch and better "float"
