I am preparing to build a xj with dana 60s, bfg 42'' AG tires, and 12'' lift ( Custom 4 link front and rear leafs ). im upgrading a mud machine. im currently running a 6.5 rustys lift with 35-10.50 boggers, trussed dana 30 and 44 with lock rights. And guys this is a swamp rig and competative mudder so theres a purpose, I have seen your thoughts on tractor tires. i will post some pics soon !

hey man I'm gonna be watching your build for sure but i would go with leaf springs for sure for a mudding rig and plus its way easier to lift it to clear tractor tires heres a pic of my XJ on 44 inch TSL

You may want to replace your keyboard. you seem to be missing the e key quite a bit. "Ther" "havnt" etc.

But yeah I'm not sure what NY is like but here in Canada wide tires tend to do better from what I've seen... but I have a limited knowledge of mudding. Every time I've seen a mudder go into a trail, the following year that trail gets closed so most people tend to stay away from that except for screwing around in their own fields or a friends field.
