If your not running beadlocks I suggest you carry a torch and air pressure!

Last year Bill ran 5#s in his GY MTR's and floated on top of everything. The snow was deep and crusty x2. Once I droped lower we were able to "float" over most of the stuff with no chains.

Can't wait for this year, right pressure to start of with and the wife along side....priceless.

your tires are too skinny

The tires really make the difference. Plus the ability to keep the RPM's up to dig through.

Martin struggled quite a bit. It surprised me with those big 34" meaty trackter tires. But they were cold and stiff so he couldn't roto-till through. Plus he was lighter with his soft top.

My brother and I were surprised to see how well my MTR's did with 30k on them. I'll be getting my MT MTZ's on this week. Look forward to the 3rd.

Ok, I'll post a picture too.
