    Some people don't like them but I can help make them even better.
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not.

    I got a real good deal on them and want to make them work. Everytime I see em in action I am impressed. I just need to make them suit my needs better, shouldnt be hard. My buddy has a groover. just wanted some opinions before I started cutting these things.

    Thanks for the REAL replies. thats exactly the kind of info I wanted.
    But I think some people missed the first post... If i wanted to hear my tires are junk I WOULD HAVE ASKED MY WIFE.
    You come onto a forum and ask for "opinions" and that is exactly what you got...so quit your b*tc*in and go get it done.

    For those of you who didnt read the first post, I said I wanted opinions from people that have cut boggers... very simple. If you cant help me with my post then why reply? unless of course you have way to much free time or want to argue.... thanks again to those that helped.

    :banghead Boggers
    Even grooving them wont help much if you like playing on the rocks, they will just slide the rubber is to HARD. Grooving them wont make it any softer. Wasn't someone on here talking about treating there tires with stuff to make the softer not to long ago

    What about the key word swamper?

    I think the point to everyone's comments was that perhaps you might want to consider another tire. If they are what you want and you want to use them, great, don't take offense to the suggestions. But if you are looking to have a tire that will work for your desired terrain, then listen, because some of the guys that have made comments have had or have run with guys with Boggers, and even with cutting or grooving they may still not be ideal. Boggers sell pretty easy, and it would be easier to sell them uncut, if you wanted an opportunity to try something else.

    But, if you do cut them, post up pics and let us know how they work.

    Might have been me. I got some formula V that I am going to try out. I am hoping it will turn my tired old swampers into red labels

    Agreed, I think the bogger is a little underated. I would never run them out west where it's all rock but around here where the tails are loose dirt and mud mixed in with a little rock they can do very well.
    Putting some thought into to which way to groove them can really make the tire come alive.
    To prove this, I will groove up one set of boggers for free to any member here. On one condition that you will push them hard on the trail against other rigs running ltb's,iroks, etc to do a real world comparision. You will also have to give us updates, photo's and videos of these test.
    Let me know who would be interested.

    Oh and Tom (Nhstomper) you can help me groove them since you too are such a fan of them

    What I'm saying is that grooving isn't gonna magically make them flex good. The rubber compound they use in boggers is much harder than other tires. Grooving will obviously make them better, so if thats what you're stuck with def groove them. However, if you are really concerned about conforming to rocks your best bet is a different tire.

    I am def. gonna groove em, they may not be ideal tire but I have never owned a set and have always wanted to try them. Ive been offered a new set of 38 tsls for em but I want to run boggers. I have heard they are to hard for rocks but I dont wheel in rocks, moslty just old logging roads. If nothing else I will be able to help the next guy in my shoes... And they are real sexy looking. I will keep you guys up to date when I get them grooved and when I test em out.
