    Running mud can be fun. But, man, the maintenance after the fact is such a PITA! Mud can be VERY damaging to such stuff as disc and drum brakes, ball joints, u-joints, hubs, etc..

    running in mud is fun!you just have to be willing to maintain your rig.i have 4 wheel disks which are pretty much self cleaning,dont have any balljoint just king pins.lots of marine grease and keep the fluids changed everything last for a long time.it's usually the lack of cleaning everything and bad seals that tears stuff up.but i agree mud has got to be the worst thing on parts.

    Discs help a lot. When I did my last mud run, my rear drums were a joke! Caked solid. In the front, the mud damaged the calipers a little. I had to work them quite a bit with lube yesterday to get them back up to snuff. I also rebuilt my hubs and wheel bearings as preventative. That residual grit that can get in there can do so much damage over time! Of course, my engine compartment will never be the same. When we did our big mud run back the first weekend of March, the mud froze over night on the rig. First stop was the car wash so that I could unfreeze the steering linkage, emergency brake cable, brakes themselves, aletrnator, and so much more. Guess the only thing worse than mud is frozen mud!

    But, hey, it was a blast and it got me in a major national magazine!

    I gotta agree with efilnikufecin, it all comes down to a matter of maintenance. All I do is go muddin' and a good tip is to get a non-flamable tire wet spray like black magic and cover your chassis, engine and fenderwells. Go nutz with it ,the more, the easier it comes off. Unless you like to drive around and show off your truck like it just pulled itself out from a mudslide /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
