You like mud? (56k FTL)

08sport4x4 and I got together today for a little wheelin. He had a few other buddies come out as well.

Our first spot we went to didn't last long before the popo's showed up and made us leave. So we went elsewhere had fun some fun in the mud for the rest of the day.

I finally got to try out my Discoverer STT's in the mud and met me tell you, those tires are F-ing incredible.

On with the pics!! I woul dhave had more pics, but filled my camera's internal memory. I need a memory card lol.

This is after we got kicked out of the first place and drove down a service road to get out of there.

We got to our new spot and had lots of fun for the rest of the day. Nothing special, just a muddy patch of field with some big mud holes. Lots of good wholesome fun for all!

Dan (08sport4x4) got stuck after several passes. We dug this hole out pretty good and it got a little deep by the end of the day.

The original place that we were at, yes the farmer and the police were about ready to kick our asses.

NICE!!! that looks like a good time to me. Looks like those Coopers worked really well. Out here if a farmer caught you, you would probably be shot at.


So I take it everything is thawing out? Nice gooey mud!

haha yeah it was fun. Spent a good 5 hours out wheeling. The Coopers are fantastic, they just paddle through everything. Mud for those things is as easy as driving on dry pavement lol.

It was cool today, about 5 degrees. The mud was cold and hard, but warmed up and thawed a little and got really gooey and nasty. I love mud like that.

I already see an issue with your recovery techniques. DON'T EVER USE A BALL ON A HITCH! Get a D-ring, and use that instead.

Nice pictures though.

ive seen this posted numerous times and my argument is that if your ball is going to fly off and hit the window of what youre pulling out, you sure are hell shouldnt tow a trailer with it either

^^ i partially agree but trucks weight a hell of a lot more then a trailer.. and trailers put pressure on the top of the ball (circle part) tow straps put all the pressure below the circle which some cases leads to shearing off at the threads.

There is a difference between progressively accelerating with a trailer (exerting only the trailers rolling resistance of accelerating and braking forces on the ball) and taking a run using momentum to create a force 3+ times the weight of the trucks in an instantaneous yank.

A ball and D ring are also usually forged differently, causing different reactions when exerted by different speeds of force.

But of course I'm sure you knew all this.

Exactly. I thought that was pretty basic.

That looks like fun, first time I've seen your truck that muddy Mike! Did you go through that hole too? Looks like a quick way to a flooded interior. Frickin' deep!

haha sure looks pretty doesnt it? I went through that bilg hole about 4 times before Dan tore it all up and it got too deep. No water in either of our interiors either,even though it was deeper than the rockers.

Our friend with a Cherokee was not so lucky in keeping water out though lol.
