    Hey guys, its raining like a scolded dog here and i just went boggin a little bit in a field down the street from my house.. The mud and water was coming up over the hood and seemed like i almost got stuck once or twice (didnt wanna chance it any more without my cell handy or another 4x4 there) Right now i have some All terrain Tires (the same as the BFG A/T's, but a different brand), but i also have some 34/15.50 swamper TSL's that have about 40% tread depth left.. Are these gonna work better than the a/ts (which are brand new) or do both sets pretty much suck for the mud??? Thanks in advance, Nate


    BTW, I have a airraid intake system with a K&N filter on the end of it, this looks like a easy deal to make into a snorkel of some sort with the filter being either in the cab or something like that with some 3-4 inch pipe, what do youguys have for snorkels. this is a 85K10.. Thanks

    run the swampers in the mud even with 40% tread they should bite better than A/T's

    Do a search on snorkels and you will see a few setup's RootBreaker has a pretty slick snorkel on his truck. A month or two ago somebody was offering a snorkel kit on here I plan on purchasing

    swampers will work much better. the at's get loaded with mud too easy, even if you can spin them fast, they will still get loaded up fast.
