looks like your SEARCH didnt turn up much info either. I didnt think they were made overseas I thought Kelly made them but I may be wrong there. Thanks for looking it up though. Yea 35x10.50x15 boggers is really what i want but man their high $$ I was hoping to find something a little cheaper. I think the 9.00x16 grip spurs are 36" tall.

Co-op ? Do they even make them anymore? I had some on the back of my Newport in high school. I think they were from the 70's. Harder than hell, used black jack to seat the bead, shook above 70. God they were awesome.

They will never touch a bogger, or even a TSL. They are to hard, and not aggressive enough.

Just a little help from your Southern neighbor. If you're going to be a grammar Nazi you have to eliminate your own grammar errors.

I was merely commenting on the fact that he could at least try to make his paragraph readable. That paragraph looks like it was written by a two year old with dyslexia.

Whats typically the weak link on the D44 or the 1st thing to break I mean.

I just rebuilt both axles the 9" with Yukon shafts, Detroit Locker, Yukon 4.56's. Front still got stock shafts with Auburn Gear posi and Yukon 4.56's. I will put new shafts in the D44 as soon as these break. I did put new u joints in the old shafts tho.

Hubs and u joints. Then stub shafts. I've blown 2 hubs in one wheeling trip, with 31" a/ts. I had a 76 Jeep Cherokee that had a dana 44 under it, and with 35" Ground hogs I would blow a u joint on about every 3rd or 4th trip. This is East Tenn. trail running ith some deep mud, and rocky, muddy, slick hills, with bouncing and heavy throttle.

yes, you will be tearing the ears off both inner and outer shafts and exploding hubs. if you beef those up, then its the spiders and sides. next the pinion, then ring. that is all of course , if you dont snap off the knuckles

A buddy of mine has a set on his CJ-5, I am running TSL LTB's and it is no comparrison on grip mine blow the GripSpur's out of the woods. They are hard as hell and don't hook worth a damn. they do have an extremely deep lug and have wore well they are 20 years old and in good shape. I would recommend running a different tire as I have not been impressed with them.

looks like a narrow version of the infamous gumbo mudder... i wouldnt put that tire on a mud truck. i would suggest using a 9.00x16 directional tire. you can groove them a bit and make them more aggressive, and they wear like iron but still provide good traction.

the Ground Hawg style traction design works the same way, and this type of tire can be found in a 9.00x16 for about 175 each...


the buckshot isnt a bad tire as long as you keep it skinny so it can dig...


too bad we cant get this tire in America... Damned Aussies get em, though.

are you fucking shitting me...

Let see... The Co-Op!
I dont know where you are but im from mississippi and we have co-op's here and that's who sells them.


Oh and what you really want is Gumbo Monster Mudders. About the same tread design as the co op grip spur and buckshot. The 40x17 size seems to work the best.

But back to the co-op design= These tires were made for farmers to ease through fields, slowly. That is the key to these type of tires, you cant just mat the throttle and expect to go like a swamper or bogger. The key is lower RPM's 2500 or so.

Biggest tire you can get is a 36" in the 16" rim flavor. Biggest tire in the 15" rim is a 31.

A little truck with some 36" co-op's will go . You will hate it until you figure out to lower the wheel speed so the tire can grab. They are meant to clean out at low wheel speeds. Try it and you will see.

I`ve stared at those Simex a few times on here, I could have sworn that someone was importing them into the US. Good looking tire.

There are a few no-name companies in Canada that we`ve bought tires from, Mud terrains in 33`` flavour for around $125 pre tire
If you`re just looking for a budget mud terrain, phone some local tire shops, we`ve had good like with the lesser brands.

The Buckshots do just fine a high RPM, I'm sure the spurs would be the same.
