what are you using it for? is a daily driver?

If its a daily driver go for the muds.

If its pretty much wheeling only, go for the swampers or LTB's. If you only want to run mud, then go with boggers.

bogger will dissapear so fast if you daily it
swamper will all most double the life
bf's work well and will last a lo9ng time then you can sell em and get something better


boggers will break yer jeep but it sure looks cool

swampers will make it difficault to drink timmys on the road

bf's are all round best choice [cheers]

Always broke

For a small tire i think an interco truxus M/T , haven't heard anything bad about them yet???? but what do i know about tires?????

Tough choice, I run LTB's on my Ranger that will not see much DD'ing, I ran BFG's on my exploder which is more of a DD but recently sold them off to buy some bigger MTR's. The BFG's held up really well and sold them off at a decent price, but I've always liked the streetability and off road capability of the MTR.

yea, i had a set of thornbirds on my cherokee. I agree with skinny. Super good on the road, drove straight as an arrow. Stupid simple to balance, and awesome traction off road. There a super good mud tire, and really good on the rocks too.

Kinda depends if you gonna street it alot ie:daily driver. You ain't gonna want to do it on bias ply tires for very long, which means the boggers are out. Outta the choices of radials I'd go with the swampers or maybe the Truxus if ya wanted to go with an interco tire. Over all I'd say Mmmmmmmmm Boggers.

Swampers clean better than boggers at slow speed. They also have far better traction on side hills.
Boggers are great if you want to go hard in the mud and do a little trail running. But if you like trails swampers are the better of the two.
Mickey Thompson MTZ, IROCS ,and Pitbull Rockers are also great on trails in all conditions.

Always a tough choice

thats because they were made to be a SHOW tire. They LOOK good with the big side lugs, but the tread is very flat with little space between the lugs which means all street and parking lots baby.. they were never intended to leave the pavement.

Go with the Boggers. I was worried about getting them, but decided to take the plunge. They Completely rock. I run em off road at 7psi, and they go anywhere. Of course I only put about 6K per year on the rig, so wear isn't a concern for me.

from my understanding they are a pretty good tire, however,they like to spit beads. this is caused by the bead protector on the tire.

No first hand exprience, but what i've heard.

in my opinion dont go boggers they look better than they perform, I know because I've run them as well as tsl and iroks. I think the iroks are by far better all around way better compound

jon3y3 runs em. they have a compound that is softer then most DOT tires. they wear fast but work decent.

the problem with them is that the tread lugs are so big. they are more of a rock tire if you ask me. and not BC rock. moab/AZ style rock.


Bogger suck BALLS for anything other then goign in a straight line.

i woudl say Truxus MT's or Super swamper SX or TSL. Iroks are good for the first season then they round out and the performance drops off the mat.

LTB's are cool but heavy. and the compound seams to be real hard and have a long break in period.

All my experience is based on rock crawlgin and trail wheeling. Not mud.

Besides mud is for pussy's right??

yea, andy runs the rockers, i was talking to him about them last weekend, hes really likeing them, i wouldnt mind trying them, was thinking about picking up 38`s when i get the new axels in, right now im running bias ply tsls, i like em even there pnuts old OLD almost bald tires, they still do pretty well in the rocks, i would go with tsl sx`s but there heavy fuckers, my spare is a 36" sx and that spare, unmounted weighs more than one of my tsls on my aluminum rim with air in it,

Im the guy nbrowser was talkin about, I run the 40" x 16.5 x 16 pitbull rockers, Im pretty happy with em so far, Im sure when I get em broke in they will be even better. Only issue is there is only one dealer up here that I know of and they are hard to get ordered. They are a really hard tire and the weight of my jeep wont break them in as fast as I want, but I dont dd my jeep, its pretty much just a trail rig now.

there is no debate on the fact that they do better in the mud them most tires.

as well there is no debate that there is a number of other tires that do much better on the trail and rocks then the bogger.

so that being said i still dont' know why people get so upset when they are told boggers arnt the best.

I like my LTB's. They def are not a dd tire but they have stood up okay to pavement. I like their traction ability off road. They need to be aired down in the snow for street driving. Great traction in the mud and they seem to clean well. Would I buy another set...yes. But I would like to try another aggresive style of tire as well just because. But for the price of a new set of LTB's you can't go wrong imo.

i ran boggers for a summer or 2 and now running tsl sx's and they are both great tires.. but very differnt from one another..defintly sx on the trails and rocks... boggers had big side trackin problum, especialy when its wet out,but couldnet beet them in the deep mud. sx much quieter on the road and seem too be lasting longer so far...

El Camino

I considered the SX as well. My boggers seem to do quite well on rocks as well as mud and deep snow. I wouldnt recommend them for DD. Anything I buy for my truck is strictly for off road. I dont consider on road performance when I buy tires. I just wanted to try the Boggers out. They arent the end all be all but I like them. I have a friend who spends more time on road and he got the TSL radial SSR. They are pretty good as well, and come siped.
