Thanks and yes I love my ag tires...not much rock close to me so spending 4 grand on a set of 44"s and rims is kinda redundant...my 44" ag tires will out-pull every tire on the market save a fresh set of cut boggers...and when you play in mud and dirt...and I'm not talking about your grandpa's field mud hole either...where I ride you start out with 20 trucks and at the end of day you hope you still have enuff buddys left to help with the fire....if I had one wish it would be to go play with those "Ladoga" boys over in Russia....if ya don't know what i'm talking about look it up ....Russian Ladoga on YouTube.....

Oh forgot to mention....ag tires have quite a few perks...1). No matter how educated the person..they always ask.."Are those tractor tires."...2). You can buy a set of 4 with tubes for under a grand brand-new...3). They look cool...4). With rims they weigh enuff to help prevent roll overs....then there is the fact that the ones I own are actually made by "Interco" the folks who make TSL's, Bogger's, and Irok's...plus I have seen a set of these grooved and man were they bad ***...draw back is once they get mostly bald your truck becomes a 4wd drifter

This was seriously one of the best build I have read thus far. Maybe I missed it, but are you keeping the tractor tires on there?
