sucks about the tranny, but then again you need a manual.

Don doesnt know how to play in the mud :goodfinge

Most of the hardcore guys up here run manual trans. they like it because they can select what gear is best for their run. Yesterday i was riding with my buddy Gilbert in his built 78 Bronco and he was explaining to me how he works the shifter. he usually just picks the gear and hammers it. no shifting in middle of the past or u will loose the speed. in harder clay like mud he uses 1st gear 4hi for speed since it doesnt drag on the motor as much but if he needs more torque for the thicker gooey stuff he uses 3rd gear 4lo.

the bad thing is with a manual trans the drivetrain takes in more stress

Sweet pics.

how have those hawgs worked for you? i want a pair.

i decided to get another set of hawgs :thumbup . great floation but doesnt dig as hard as boggers. nice and light for lower power trucks. less drag again great for lower power trucks. and rides well on the street compare to boggers. they are noisy and likes to pull into imperfections on the road though. if u play in alot of mud its a great tire next to boggers
