Find your project Alex?

My advice is to stay FAR away from them Florida mud bogs. Those guys are some of the dumbest SOB's I have ever seen, and the junk they drive around is the most dangerous things I have ever seen...

If I was you, I'd try to find a mostly stock starting point. Who knows what sort of hack jobs are out there when it comes to V8 swaps, and stuff. Find a 350 mated to a SM465 backed with a NP205, and find a pair of axles from a 1-ton chevy. A full floating 14-Bolt, and a Dana 60. Stick a Lunati Voodoo cam in the 350, a Air Gap intake/Truck Avenger carb, and a set of headers. You'll be looking at around 375ft-lbs, and have a setup that you will not break...

Nope, I don't run 50" mud tires but I grew up here playing in the mud bogs. We actually used to use our bone stock '97 TJ to pull a lot of those trucks out when they would sink to the frames.

Thank the lord. Not one thing makes sense about those guys... Nothing makes sense about those things.

Height that makes you wonder if someone changed the rules of COG.

Suspension that is either leaf springs with so much arch that it might as well not have them, or link suspensions with junk tractor heims.

Don't even get me started on the engines... Yeah, great... Your making 1500HP. Now lets see it last more then half a season before pushing a rod out the side of the block...

What about safety you ask? Well who needs a roll cage when your truck is two stories off the ground? Seat belts? Well then how would we hang half way out the window while doing a donut on ground full of ruts?

The question is. What's going to happen first? Is the IFS going to fold under the truck, or is a tie rod going to pop sending the truck into a bus full of nuns?

I have to see if there is a off road thread around here.

Nono, Bro/Eskibro* Trucks are a bit different. They're generally built slightly better, but have hideously flashy rims, too many lights and never, ever go off-road. Plus, their tires are always too small for the lift.

Crap Boggers generally use the cheapest lifting option available (Shackles, arm drops, spacers and big-*** body lift-double points if they use Grade 5 bolts and hockey pucks), whatever they can do to get the body off the ground. No attention to driveline angles or flex or COG paid at all. Generally fit tires that are both too big and completely inappropriate for anything but mudding.

*Eskibro trucks are exactly the same as Bro Trucks, except that they've got a sled deck with a Skidoo or two on the top. Pretty much exclusive to Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territory and the more northern Canadian oil towns like Fort Mac. The difference between a regular truck hauling a snowmobile and an Eskibro Truck is that they keep the sleds there all ****ing year round. My kid brother is a bit of an Eskibro.
