    Some shit I got on craigslist
    Burried my shit to the frame. Had to replace the front diff seals on both sides and a CV boot. NTM clean out 300LBs of mud that had packed into every nook and cranny of my undercarriage. After that I had to use a snow shovel to get it off my driveway. Never again!

    I just recently went mudding and ended up blowing a seal in my transmissions, flooded the inside, and fried two amps.

    Mud is really really bad for everything that moves, and doesn't move.

    then the shit dried and has DESTROYED my paint. Stay the hell out of dry lake beds that arent dry. that shit is basically concrete- never had this problem before, but when it dried, it cracked off in big chunks and took paint with it. :0 looked safe..
