    :thinking: get yourself a 1 ton crewcab longbed. jack it up and run 54" boggers. its long enough that by the time your rear tires get in the mud the fronts should be coming out the other side. turning radius is going to suck, but who needs to turn around in the mud.

    No doubt my dream mud truck is a 4+4 Chevy with the frame shortened and a six foot bed installed. Run a supercharged 502 with a TH400 and a divorce mounted 205 going to Rockwells and 54" Boggers. To keep it simple, run leaf springs with traction bars. Put a PTO winch on the back and a Warn 16.5ti on the front in one of those pricey, but o-so-nice ORD front bumpers. Put the radiator in the bed, add a roll cage, and have fun.
