Some sticky tires would make that look easy.
LTB's and Superswampers aren't the best rock tires by any means

I totally agree. We have one guy that runs 39.5 stick krawlers and he does really well. He broke the bottom off of his air shock letting it droop too far and no limit straps. I am pretty set on running 40 inch versions of what I have unless something changes...

You got MTR's now right? those or the 42" pitbull rockers, they stick pretty darn good, but are a whole lot tougher. I most likely end up running a set of those in the future. They cost a lot less and stick almost as good as sticky tires

I have the mtr's, I am not too crazy about pitbulls yet. I don't have any real world experience with them but I like my goodyears. I wish my mtrs had a stout of a sidewall as the swampers do but kept the same tread/compound on the tread side.

Pitbull rockers are every bit as tough as any interco tire, they just stick better. The only reason I am not running mine is because they are not tall enough, You spin the doggies a bit and they start sticking pretty darn good and a lot tougher than MTR's or Krawlers. The red label krawlers slice a sidewall way to easy, they do stick to rocks really well though

The highway krawlers are wimpy on the sidewalls too.

When you upgrade to a dana 60 and your new rear axle. Will you cut your front and rear frame section off to replaces it like mike did?
