    Hope I posted this in the right area. I keep mentioning my mud truck but never posted the pics until today. Click on "my real life cars" to view the pics. I took it out into the mud this weekend and it was the most fun I have ever had!!!! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    You got lots of fun toys from the looks of things. I know where all your money goes. What is the brand of those 44's. Looks like something with an extremely tough compound....ground hawgs?

    I borrowed the dana 44 from a friend and it was already trashed so the pass u-joint went out on the second day. I usually only use 2wd anyway.

    I went thru mud that was as high as the bumper and the tires disappeared w/o getting stuck. If I went out into anything any deeper my friends would have a hard time getting me out. I pulled into the center of one hole aburried all 4 tires all the way down. Took 3 trucks to get me out. Later my friend with 38's thought he would show off and drive into the holes I made. OOps he tried just putting the passenger side in the holes and the driver side on the high land--bad move. He instantly rolled his truck onto the pass side and snapped his driveshaft.
    We videotaped all of this. I will try to get pics off of the video tape and bring them in. When we watched the video all that showed of my truck was the from the top of the fenders and up. It seems like pretty serious mud to me.

    I am sorry for being skeptical, but with all the mud I know and play in... 2wd wont cut it, period.

    N/P I couldn't believe how well it did in 2wd. I started in 4 wd until I broke the universal in that dana 44---front pass side. It was a stock axle though. Mabey with some better parts it would hold up.

    Theres a whole group of mudders around here the BELIEVE in 2x. They typically use early frd's with the front i-beams flipped, tall skinny airplane style front tires for floatation and 44" boggers in the back. Works real well with a 460 providing the motovation /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I took some pics off of the tv of my truck when I went into one of the mud holes. I forgot the camera the day we went mudding so this was the only way I could bring in pics to show you how deep one of the holes was. This is one of the smaller holes I went into. 2WD The pics are kind rough. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Click on "my real life cars"
