    stock, for now
    its not great for the brakes, but it will wear away. When you get home(or go to a carwash) and just hit the brake area with some water to make sure

    make sure to get it out of the vents in the rotors. Mud gets into everywhere and starts the thrashing process.

    Don't forget about the drum brakes.....

    Take the wheels off and take the drums off and hose out the internals of the drum brakes. They can get nasty in there also.
