<font color=purple> The guys in TN really like the way Boggers grip slimy rocks. But, for pure mud, you want TSL's - especially on the front. Boggers are HP robbers & tend to dig in when you lose momentum, where TSL's will continue to pull you forward. And in spite of what you'd think, 36X12.50's will absolutely SPANK
35" TSL's or Boggers in deep mud - especially if it's thick.
Boggers do hook up better on greazy stuff that's realatively shallow. The 38.5X11 Bogger is the tire of choice among Super Stock mud draggers. They don't do as well in deep stuff where the setup is typically 39.5" Swamper front/39.5" Bogger rear. Keep in mind, these Super Stock trucks are making 700HP or more & can really take advantage of the big rubber. A handful of 2,800 lb machines run 39.5" Boggers at all 4 corners & float on top like a "Modified" would. 100 MPH of tire speed helps.
In our 36" Street class, none of the competitive machines have Boggers in the front & only a handful run them in the back - typically 400 HP or more. We had no official points' series this year, but the 36" winner & 2nd place in '98 both had 34X9.50 TSL's - I was 3rd with 38X12.50's. This year, I took the most victories on Q78's (basically 35.5X11) & my closest competitors had 36X12.50's in the front & 35X14.50 Boggers in the back. We run bog-style pits.
So, to sum up, I'd say that the Boggers would be your best bet if you run nasty Tellico-type trails. If your trails are mild & your mud is deep, I'd pick TSL's & preferably narrow ones. If you're worried about how they'll go on the highway, you don't want either. Both suck on-road. </font color=purple>
