On the look out for another set of Meats...after some thoughts, the Boggers just weren't right for this project. So we'll see what we find.;) Stay Tuned!

What size are the wheels?
The new ones are 16.5's but we're not locked into them. We got them at a good price , so flipping them is no biggie if we need to. We bought them while in the process of buying these axles and but before we decided to dump the old tires. :banghead: I want to go to 17's or something down the road anyway. Wheels are super easy to come by for these axles:p:

Are we looking for 38s again or is there a range? Also what are we looking for if the boggers don't fit the style? Bias or radial?

40ish... 38-42 I guess. Maybe some TSL, IROK's . Maybe some old 40" MTR's, 39" BFG Krawlers... Something like that. Don't need to be new but gotta have something to work with.

I found some 41" Irok's pretty cheap($600), but I'll go broke trying to find 20"s to fit them:(
