Default 87 Sammi Power???

Ok yall, I just got my first Samurai. Its a 87 with 7"'s of lift and new 31" super swampers also has the weber carb on it. In 4wd LOW this thing will bog down and stall out when i get in the mud. Nothing real thick at all. Any ideas what it could be? Thanks for the help.

Ya. I believe it does have stock. So is this normal with stock gears?

well, stock rubber is 26" tall and you have 31" now... do the math.
Changing rubber like that is like changing the gearing.
If you tire up, you must gear down at least the same amount if not more.
Those 31" weigh more, push more mud in front of them, etc.
How does it run on the street? No flat spots?
