Mud or Rock Krawlin?

Just curious what you all like better. Ive never really rock crawled, but muddin' is fun Just not fun cleaning up afterwards...

Though i guess it is better than lossing a fender, or ripping your trans out

I like the healthy mix approach. Rocks though tend to break more stuff than mud but if you really want to scare the $h!t outta someone go with rocks. Chicks seem to digg the whole mudding thing around here from what I can see.

I play in the rocks as much as possible, and drive around the mud holes if I can. I enjoy playing in the mud, I just don't like cleaning the truck afterwords. I guess I am just lazy!

By "Healthy mix of both" do you mean muddy rocks?

I just spray tire wet or Silicone lubricating spray all over the undercarrage before I mud then it just wash right of or not stick at all.

Yeah you need to add Pond Hoppin as another choice for AD. He is hard core.

Personaly if I lived in an area where all I had was mud I would be building street rods
Maybe I just do not understand mud but I understand rocks very well. Sorry to the mud runners but that is just the way I roll.

I dont mind getting it dirty, in fact I LOVE playing in the mud with the top off and the doors off getting dirty.

I just hate taking all weekend cleaning the interior/undercarriage, and still spot cleaning for weeks before I can take it back to the dealer

Then are they really considered "Jeepers" or are they just people who own jeeps?

i'd prefer rocks. but two reasons keep me from riding them:

1) my rig isn't quite rock worthy yet and...
2) there arent many rocks (that i know of) around my area.
