14% should do you well. Some go a bit more, but that's up to you. If you have some mechanical ablities, it should take a half a day or a 12 pack. Whichever comes first.... It should come with complete instructions....

For the regular 29.5's 15% should be enough in 95% of mud. Now for the outlaw2's don't even tink about them without a 35% or maybe the double GR for 50%. Those things are gonna be HEAVY. heavier than the current 31's
