    Hello,

    I am about to start to build a cage for our mud truck. out goal is to leave only the firewall and windshield in place. the rest will be caged. I would like to see any pics of peopl who have done this or even a drawing. The floor and the rest of the body on this truck are completely rotted out so we will be building form the ground up. this i a 78 if this helps. Thank you.

    are you going to wear a poncho? With only a windsheild and firewall you will still get a heck of a lot of mud inside?

    Steve, you ever see a bunch of rock crawlers go through mud?? We had to on our last run and it took about 35+ minutes to idle the 5 miles to the trail.

    But he is talking about building a mud truck, so I thought that he would be running mainly mud. So I don't think he would idle through it?
    I don't understand what your saying, sorry:confused::(

    Oh, I wasn't commenting on his rig. Just that you were so dead on as to the fear of mud when in an open rig (AZ crawlers will drive up any shear rock face but will avoid every puddle on the way).

    Sorry Matt, my mistake.
    LOL why are the AZ rockcrawlers like that (not meaning to be offensive, just asking)? Do they just like to keep the rocks dry, or why do they avoid puddles? I guess its a AZ thing:grin:
