I'm sure it all depends on what kind of lift you have too. With my lift, I'm prolly not any more capable than a stock rig except for mud, but with a high performance lift you will get better articulation and it should be tougher.

Lets just say i have had my buddies 03 nissan v6 pull me out before. My rig is stock for lift but im running 305 alltrain tires. It does help, but once you hit that mud you better be moving at a good rate of speen cuz its going to sink. now if you have a good lift and tires that can self clean them you might be allright.

To be honest these are tow rigs, first off a diesel makes big power, but kinda in the rpm range for wheeling. the front of the truck with that 7.3 is so heavy you won't roll over stuff you will mostly be pushing it. Trucks to heavy.

Buy an older bronco or K5 blazer to beat on

Sounds like your setup is pretty nice. The driver is one of the most important things you can have offroad.

Let me FURTHER this...

I CURRENTLY have a CJ and my F250 as well as various other vehicles but now I'm getting off topic. Lets just say I drive around in the swamp behind my house in 31" A/T's that I wouldn't DARE take my truck through on 33" A/T's.... my truck leaves ruts in the yard when it's dry out LOL! the jeep doesn't even mess up the grass!
