Only put a pair on the back!! If you put them on the front you wont be able to control the truck very well, and you will shoot a ton of sand inside of the body!!

I would do both. if you are running in loos dirt/mud/sand your front wheels will slide. the only control you will have is from the fronts grabing and "pulling" the front end in the direction you want to go.

you might be able to get away with just rears depending on the surface. cant say for sure until you run it and see.

I personaly run them, so its not a "well I heard this" kinda tail!! Theres not alot of people that run paddles here but on the maxxtraxx boards they would tell you the same thing!! REAR ONLY. But it is your truck, try both and deside your self, I found it much easier to STEER the truck with out front paddles, that is when the front tires were in the sand LOL.
