Why own a truck if you arent going to use it? If you are by yourself and are uncomfortable going through, then don't, if you are with someone else and they can tow you out of the hole, let the md fly.

Remeber, steady throttle throughout!! Do not enter too fast! Enter easy and slog through with only as much throttle as necessary, tire spin is essential to assist the tires to sipe mud for further traction but too much spin will dig you a hole.

I agree with natrlyst, why get a decked out truck if your not gonna use it. I got mine hopelessly stuck within 36 hours after i bought it. i have some pics i'll post when i get a chance.

I SOMEWHAT agree with what he said though. There is a difference between going mudding and going down an extremely tight slippery muddy trail with trees on both sides that you know you are probably going to hit and bang up your truck.
You can have fun without being STUPID. Nobody wants a brand new truck with a big gash down the side from a tree.

Very true. I'll tackle any amount of mud or haul ass down a bumpy trail but i don't wanna do anything stupid enough to seriously damage my very expensive ride.
