wanna know how bad mud can really be? I did 20 in the Navy, and I've had a Humvee stuck in 6" of mud before
Also if you have open diffs then losing traction is the worst enemy you have.
Kinda just contradicted yourself there, said mud canceled out everything but then said open diffs make it harder in mud.

I believe the latter, I think having lockers makes a huge difference along with type of tires and how big. That is of course my opinion on very little wheeling and watching others get stuck.

Oh contrair my friend, I never said open diffs make it harder, but there should be a >that< between cause and mud on line 3, cause that area back there is so deep, there's no way anything that isn't 2 feet from ground to diff bottom can make it through.

You are right about lockers and bigger tires though, but I would recommend LSD's instead of lockers, they are smoother going around corners. But then I've had LSd's al my life and never had a locker at all
