Trails are more tricky. Anyone can go out and spash around in some mud! ... but then again, anyone can go mess their rigs up on the trail. I like the trails better, better photo-ops also. Like the others said, mud is too tiring to clean up after.

Mud is fun. Nothing like being able to spray your passengers with mud when you are letting the big dogs eat. The only draw back is the amount of immediate care required when you are playing in the mud.

My earliest Jeep memory was seeing the Glen Lake Mudders go out to rattlesnake heaven. I just happened to be swimming and jumping off the east bay bridge when about 30 of them went by. I was about 9 or 10. When they came back, every jeep was the same color... mud! I'm sure I will have fun on any surface. Getting another Jeep was simply divine from the unexpected check to finding my Jeep "Corey's Road" on a back road. Praise the Lord!
Alive is well.

If you haven't broken anything that's great - you stand a chance breaking where ever you go. I won't lie and say it wasn't fun watching my 35" boggers eat it up either!

But the work power washing and changing the diff fluids etc after made it all not worth it.

Back when I bought my first Jeep (an '88 XJ) and began getting into the hobby, I spent a lot of time playing in mud. The endless cleaning and maintenance after each trip got old in a hurry. Rocks, on the other hand, seemed to be easier on my Jeep's mechanicals, if not on the bodywork. As time went on, I spent less and less time in the mud and more and more time on the rocks.

By the time I transitioned into my first Wrangler (a factory-ordered '01 TJ), I had turned my back on mud for good. I'm on my 5th TJ now, and I've never looked back.
