Tires: Yes, I already have my eyes on some nice mud tires.

Lift: Yes I've got springs waiting to go on.

Bed: I had to rig my filler neck since it rotted out so I had to lift that corner of the bed with a few washers since the neck created a trap after rigging it up and the gas pumps would trip off.

Mud: It's there, the middle pic is before the mud. It was flying everywhere. But it was thick and def not the sandy puddles. Might have been that most fell off when we got onto the road doing 55.

It's all good for a first time at offroading. Some credit has to be giving there.

I'll give you credit. Not everyone has an awesome 4wd truck, that doesn't mean you can't have fun.

Why? The rangers rear end is way to light to make Mud Terrain tires actually useful on a 2wd.

Well, all terrains are the same price.
It had no problem going through the mud. I've got cheap no name ATs with around a 1/4" of tread left. I plowed through the mud 4 times before I MADE myself get stuck.
This pit was a good 45' long and 15' wide and like I said, atleast 6" of soft mud before you hit anything solid.



Mike, you make me jealous. South Jersey is nothing but sand, only mud you'll come across is if you venture off the trail and into the forest.



Not as muddy as it should be. Were going back this weekend with more supplies.
Shovel, more ropes, 2x12 wood planks.
I'm going to put on some hooks, that was the problem, we had no places to mount the tow straps.

I plan on getting my lift on thursday for the front, my tires are wearing badly cause of the negative camber. My shocks and springs are saggy.

Glad you had fun. Do yourself a favor though and never use metal hooks on a tow strap for snatching. Can get you killed.
BTW, here is what 8 inches of mud looks like. :) OK maybe a little more than 8 inches.
