Mud

I've decided I dislike mud more and more every time I go wheeling! It's unbelievable how that stuff gets in every nook and cranny of my jeep. I just spent an hour in the rain with the pressure washer tryin to spray the muddy water out of every tiny crevice! :vent

I mud a lot out here in mid-MI. We ended up getting our own power washer last year and on average, it takes about 2.5-3hrs cleaning it all off. We normally put the jeep on ramps as well to be able to get everywhere.

After my last three hour cleaning session and new brakes, I'm done muddin' for awhile.

Snow season is coming anyways!

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. See avatar.

With current Jeep I try to stay on sand, rocks, dirt, no more mud. It can be fun and challenging but hard to clean and hard on parts!

Yeah funny thing is that after most of those photos we never could get her to come wheel with us anymore.

You mean like the one of her on the back bumper with the jeep buried in 3 feet of mud?

When you have no rocks or trails mud is the only way to have fun... although looking for mud can cause issues...
