I have 1K on Sedonia rip saws, 6ply. A step up on handling from stock. I bought the stock size front and rear and they measure 26 not 27 which I like. 8.5 front 8 rear is working well. With almost no tire squat.

You need a uhmw skid plate and a heavier foot haha. I drove over a massive hardwood log someone dropped across the road to keep trucks out. Use diff lock to get the front tires up then floor it to get past the tipping point then the front tires drag you back end over. Too little gas and you end up with a tetter todder and a photo op. Everybody else drove around, i had to be different. Careful in those old cut overs, i got a stump jammed in the gap between my rear frame and rear control arm. Friggen thing was hidden in the grass. Ruined a new chainsaw bar and chain cutting it out.

My skid lasted 20 minutes into the first ride with the rocks we have. Skidder ruts aint no fun, especially when you find them in the long grass.
