Tested out the Swamper LTBs!!!!!

Well today I finally put my new swampers to testing. I got the LTB 34x10.50. My jeep runs a 4.1L V6 with 4.27 axle gears. and no lockers. Well I was extremely impressed with the way they hooked up in the mud. Not that I made everything, but the tires really clean themselves and fling mud everywhere. I had a bunch of runs in them ranging from mild much to endless ooze. I got that V6 to scream louder today than before, i just wish that my carb worked better like my tires, but that is another story. I always get into the debate of skinny Vs wide tires in the club i am in. We do play in a lot of mud and the bigger tires do eat through alot of it, but for a lightwieght early CJ5 like mine i think they are the perfect size. I dont know how they run on rocks because we dont have them this far south, but they are great in the mud. Here is a picture of me stuck in some real nasty stuff. I got stuck in even deeper endless ooze, that came up to my knee and really suction onto my leg, but i did not have my camera handy.Enjoy.

I really envy you, here in Arizona we are pretty much in the middle of a drought. Me and my friends can't even go camping because all the forest are pretty much closed due to extreme fire danger, they won't reopen untill it rans sometime in August or later if we're lucky.
