yeah a rollcage is a must. my first couple times out i didnt have one and didnt want to half the stuff i do now. i basically just caged in the drivers compartment. i dont plan on tumbling down a hill, but if it happens i kinda want to live though it.

before the boggers i had just off brand all terrain tires and theres no comparison. the boggers are awesome. you can feel each **** grabbing when your climbing hills or on rocks. i need to get some beadlocks to air down though cause full pressure doesnt seem like im getting alot of surface area when climbing dry hills

all depends on what size tires and how hard you are going to beat your truck. i ran 10 bolts for years on fullsized chevys with 38 inch tires with minimal breakage but i tried to behave

on the s10 i just have k5 blazer 10 bolt axles. same ones ive had forever. if they held up to 38 inch tires and a v8 under a suburban, 33s under a s10 is like a vacation

there was a few out there. and it does kinda suck its so much funner when youre not worried about damage. i brought a nice k5 i had there once and destroyed the door in like 10 minutes got mad and went home lol

i dont think imma go any bigger then 33s but i could fit 33s on the bronco already with a stock suspension but i think a sas is better for climbing rocks and hills and such
