    Ive got a 6" superlift all spring and ORD H/D shackles front and rear. I plan on using this truck for trails/mud here locally in VA. Not really a DD. I have been lookin at the Ground Hawg 35's, TSL 35's, and the IROC 36x13.5's. Ok the kicker is that right now i cant afford the 14FF, so I want something that will work good in the mud and not destroy the 10 bolt the first time out. what would you do...?Thanks Jesse

    If you have a heavy foot, don't go bigger then 35's with 10-bolt axles. If you have lockers you can easily break the 10-bolts even with 35's. I've seen it happen several times.
    If you take it easy you'll be ok with bigger tires but personally I think it's more fun to be able to step on it without having to worry about braking stuff.

    It depends on your foot. My son runs a 10 bolt front with a lockrite and 37" SSRs and has only broken 1 axle.
