    :clap:Like the title says, I want to sipe my BFGs to be more aggressive and give a bit more traction for Calico. Does anyone have one of the iron plug in siping tools or one of the ones that is heated with a torch thatI can borrow for a few days? :cheers:

    Siping like that is not at Calico, just low tire pressure.

    It was just one of the the things I wanted to get done before Calico. I want to cut the large lugs in half on the BFGs.

    You really don't need to do that to get around Calico...but if you want to for other reasons i'm sure it will look cool.

    I ran sipped tires when I had my CJ with BFG muds and thought that they worked great in the sierra trailes. There was a difference before and after. I ran them that way or 2 years and want to do the same with the ones I have.

    I want to cut each of the two center V in half (like 1/8") so they grab onto everything. I may have to find a router and set the depth to what I want or heat up a wood carving knife with a torch.
