Unfortunately my "honey hole" as I call it has been permanently blocked off so I wasnt able to get him up to the axles. I took him to a nice field that is plenty muddy though (deepest I found was probably 3 or 4" before rutting...nothing spectacular but it'll do for what he was looking to do). It was his first time with this truck in the mud so he decided to follow me. He went everywhere I went, both in 2wd, with no issues at all. A few times he lost momentum and had to use 4wd, but these were spots that if I stopped in them I needed it as well.

These tires cleaned very well, they didnt throw mud fountains but did send some rooster tails pretty well.

We then hit one of the trails, its not really muddy but is very rocky and steep. Both up and down he made it with no problems. This trail has a multitude of rock sizes and the steepest parts are rain washed so it pretty much all rock and no dirt. I use 4lo im not sure what he used.

Per him:
They are fairly quiet on the street but they do chuck rocks.

Overall he was quite happy with their performance as was I. I really wish I could have gotten him in the thick and deep stuff but, I'll find another one. As a mud terrain tire these things did very well, and they look damn good too. I really like the tread pattern and the barbed wire on the sidewalls is different and looks cool.

I thought I had the phone in video mode, but evidently I didnt...so I only have some pictures.

Have you ever done any actual "mudding"? Are there actual bogs where you are? We see 4"-8" of mud on the pipeline right of way and don't consider that bogging at all. :p My stock height dually with 235/80r17 AT2s lumbers it's way through it in 4^ with 3000 lbs int he box.

I used to play in the mud as a young fellow with my old trucks, before maturing and switching to trails and rocks.
