The only problem I have had with these heavy truck other than getting stuck is when mine overloads with fuel or gets to high in the rpms it will like choke itself down and I will lose momentum. Guess I need a boost fooler or something

Youre gonna hear different answers from different people but i no longer take my truck mudding. There is always something you can break. Not much fun cleaning either. I'd get a cheap gasser for it.

Ive gone mudding with mine a couple times and wont any more, mine felt like it choked itself and bogged down as well and I broke something every time.

It surprisingly did pretty well in the mud though

hell i entered my truck in a mud bog back in early August and LOVED IT....first time i didn't actually care if it got stuck or not cuz i knew for a fact that i'd get pulled out..... i did fine in the 3ft holes, howevr the 4 foot hole just burried the front of my truck and made my tires disappear!!!!! i'm going to do it again whenever another one comes around

If you do go - make sure someone goes with you with an equally big truck! Our trucks are heavy and tend to sink. i've taken mine mudding and had a blast - I've gotten stuck a few times too. Their not like jeeps skimming on top weighing in at nothing. They find bottom quick.
