To answer pushrod1, the pro armor's are great. They would climb out of wet, muddy ruts about the same as roctanes. They did climb on slick muddy rocks about the same also. I did like the way the would clean the tread mud better than most other tires I have had. 10 psi in dry and mud seamed ok to run them at. One difference I noticed with the Blackwaters I have ran is they would sideways track on steep muddy climbs. The crawlers and roctanes do not, as they stay true in line.

The new crawler's worked great on climbs and running at speeds on rocky roads and trails. I am still running the rear stabilizer as I had no real issues, but I did not get as much trail time as on other rides. I do thank RZRJOE for the extra wide front fender flares that kept a lot of mud from slinging.

Gimpy, from what I have read from those that removed the sway bars on the gold le, say it has way to much body roll. The Walker Links would help but are a little pricey!!

More input - The 55% lower gear ratio is GREAT on those slow rocky glimbs. The Walker Evans shocks are set at factory level and did a great job too.
