If you want to go mudding you should really consider mud terrains, all terrain tires are known for not being mud friendly. You may also want to consider a limited slip or a locking diff.

Default Re: Could I go mudding in this?

My two front wheels are locking and my back has a little lift.
But I will be doing mostly driving and just mudding every other week or so should I still get mud terrains or would a/t's work? Also I will be doing a lot of sand riding are a/t's okay for that? If I shouldn't get the a/t's what should I get seeing as I'll be doing mostly street driving but still mudding and sand riding.

i have very little complaints about them, from what i have done which has been pretty thick mud and really slippery i think they do well off road and on road they have the best wear, for what i think your talking about they should be a great choice.

Sounds good, I'm stoked, so can anyone list like some mods I should get and like what are some good cheap lift kits or mods I can get that'd be good for performance or looks or whatever.

3" PA Body lift seems to be the favorite on this site. It's like $200.

I suggest pulling your pants up before you go mudding.
