I went on a little late night snow run up to Iron mountain. The snow was deep as hell. I borrowed a set of 44" swampers and was damn near unstopable, but BIG tires turn into BIG Stuck:D I can't believe how well the 44's work in the snow:D

Snow Wheeling

I went out on Saturday. Had a great time. Didn't wheel a lot in the snow, as it was really a sledding trip, not a wheeling trip, but I did get some wheeling in. Had to drive up a FS road that some kids had turned into a sledding run (on some previous day, no kids on it when we drove up it). Consequently, it was nice and icy, with a decent slope. I like the way the new tires handled the ice/snow. Crawled right up it, and never spun a tire, even without airing down.

Oh, I incorrectly posted that my BIL had 36's on his rig. He actually has 38's, and yes, they do rub. He trimmed his rear wheel well all the way back to the bed rib, but is still hitting. Didn't see any rubbing in the front though. He is still learning to drive it, had a little trouble with the ice, but we managed to get him up the hill without winching. Almost caught a tree though...

Looks like you had fun....

BTW I think I can put 38's under with no problem - should be able to put 44's under with out rubbing in the back. I got lots of room now. :D
