Haha I've actually been considering buying another set of wheels/tires and just setting those aside for when I know I'm going to be wheeling/in sketchy places. The beefy tires definitely make a huge difference at how well I can get around when I'm in the woods.

My issue with putting anything on my floors is water, mud, dirt, leaves, etc. being on my floor ALL the time.
I have just bare floors as of right now and man do the floors ever get HOT in the summer. the question is what do I use that won't hold water and won't get shitty and muddy

Syn mine stays wet a lot of times as well (though I'm sure not near as wet as yours lol). I was planning on going over the floor with some bedliner or some such stuff to keep it from getting rusty before applying any insulation.

I got black vinyl on my floor. Easy to clean out and it's sealed well so no water can sit under it.

Lizard skin is what I did. Itís heat control and sound control in two different applications. Just you tube the name.

Yeah. You can clear those rocks and ditches better on Forest Service roads. More stability all around, too. Bad side is a little less freeway power, I suppose, but it's a good trade off. Can't remember without looking, but I think stock for the truck below are 185's. I believe I run 205's on it. Way better.
