    I have 6 tires now to my name. 4 39.5" Boggers and 2 39.5" TSL Swampers. What should I run in Moab?

    1. Run Boggers all around with TSL as spare
    2. Boggers rear and TSL's in front with Bogger as a spare.
    3. Bring everything and fool around with it.
    4. Boggers look cool so just run them.

    What do you guys think? Thanks. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I heard boggers dont give much lateral traction.Ive seen some pretty good grove jobs on them though.

    It might not look as cool but I'd run the TSL's up front. I *think* you'd have more lateral traction and the big lugs on the rear would get you over most anything.

    Grove the TSL's for the front (Dr Watson's groove job is a good one) and groove the Boggers for the rear so you hav esome side hilling ability. usually cuting the lugs into 1/3's is a good way to begin. Check on the PBB for pics.

    I have considered grooving because I'm a hip dude. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Seriously, I might go boggers all around as I can air them down much more than the TSL's. I have gotten away with 3 pounds before on the Boggers and at 4 pounds on the TSL's they like to burp.

    Cliff Hanger trail in Moab, it's only a 4 rated trail but fun and a nice veiw. By the way Sandman I have had to fight the lattral stability on mudy trails but never on the rocks or even lose dirt.
