I think two dual Tire up front would be extremely helpful in situations like mud sand or snow or the very front heavy truck would just sink or dig itself in further...

But could you imagine the steering effort of dual fronts in soft material without power steering?
Slooowwww speed and keep your thumbs on the outside of the steering wheel. I also think it works with the stock 9:00-20 tires but I would not want this setup with 11:00-20 or larger.

I think the Best of Both Worlds would be to have the larger tires on the inside and Bolt the smaller ones on the outside duals that way when you're on hard surfaces like dirt or cement only the inside tires would be contacting the surface then when you went into softer material the outside set wood sink a little and then you would have all four tires giving better traction?? Might look a little goofy though

From my way of thinking there would be only limited benefit from duals up front. They look like they would take the truck anywhere, but in reality I think they would steer the truck. You may move better but not in the direction you want, this being offroad. On road... looks cool... good for shows and conversation.

If I lived on flat ground with a lot of deep mud, I'd get a couple sets of Bobcat wheel removable tracks, link them together and make them fit my truck. I don't think I need them for my area. I use a winch, and soon I'll have finish building a fixed V plow for the front, like the road graders have.
