Check my previous post. I've got the 35" TrXus and here we have 7 months of snow from soft to firm and hard pack. I do get stuck, but that's my fault I have a bad habit of well kind of looking for trouble. Like tonight in 5ft of snow. Man I'm beat. But in normal winter so far I'm happy with them. Still have several months to really put them through their paces.
Also out of all the mud tires they are the ones that have the most sipping.

I just love to go where no man has gone before.
Rock climbing, in marshes, atv trails, mud, tundra etc.

The TrXus have a 31" and that's only a 1/2" more in height towards your flares. Not much.

Has anybody used some Hankook Dynamic M/t's? I got one sitting in my garage that I picked up for cheap to use for a spare, but noticed that the tread patteren is alot more spaced out than the compareable BFG's, Firestones, Pro comps M/T's. Possibly making it a better tire in the mud.

I am running that tire now. We don't have mud much here, but the tire seems to hook up well in snow, sand & rocks.

I'd buy them again.

I was supposed to get the new Dick Cepek Mud Country's but the place I bought them from screwed up my order, Fun Country's arrived after nearly a 2 month wait.

Now I have changed my plan and decided to go with Interco SSR's I think I will enjoy them I already like the fact that they measure 31.5" tall and they call them 31's. Anyone think I will rub on my stock TJ?

Boggers or some tractor 1200's are the best

well after a few bad times with my BFG MT's in the rain I am looking for something new. I really like what Ive heard about the trxus MT, but just wondering how it does in the rain/ wet weather. I know it will do well in mud, snow, dry weather. But so do my BFG's, And with them as soon as it looks like its going to rain I just put it in full time 4wd or else all I do is spin my tires. Its almost to the point of going to an AT but I dont want to make the offroad sacrafice.
