Dont use 4lo when trying to go threw the mud like what your talking about... Your RPMs will be screaming as your trying to keep your momentum up and you could do harm to your engine...

Ahhh have fun muddin. You only live once. I would suggest buying a winch. The first and last time I went out alone idiot me got stuck in sugar sand. If I had my winch I wouldn't have to call my hubby and his friend to bail me out. I was a laughing joke all day but it was a lesson learned.

Come down here to the swamp "Florida" and we can get your truck stuck.
No. It was pure swampy mud. lol. It was in a field right after we had a major rainstorm. If you've ever seen that stuff before, you know what I'm talking about. If not, imagine plowed ground that gets completely soaked with 4-6" of rain.

Again, 4lo is stupid in that situation. Oh, and to make you feel better, I got stuck today. Just not in the Ranger. Big Red bogged down in a snow drift.

We got it out without having to pull it out, so it wasn't technically stuck. It was just temporarily not moving. lol.

Haha. I had my little brother with me (4th grader) and he was starting to freak out because he thought we were stuck.

I can see someone running their truck pretty hard if they have a lot of money. But imo there is no reason to take your truck out mudding and try to break something.

My dad bought me my truck for my first vehicle. He said this is the only vehicle I'm getting you. He gave me permission to do what I want with it but he said if you wreck anything, thats coming out of your wallet. I can only work during the summer do to extra-curricular activities. So whatever I make goes to gas money. I can't afford to take it out and ruin it.
