Ok so wheeling today at TW was awesome, rode with Matthew and Jamie. I got stuck in the mud, took two jeeps to pull me out, lol....I want to thank Jamie and Matthew for helping with tools for my jeep. Quick discoes are great except when you take them off and my tires rubbed against the front bumper. Had a great time today and look forward to wheeling with you guys again!!

I wonder if you got stuck in the same spot I had to pull Shaun out yesterday?

well, that's not happening soon, Lookout is a national park...so it's closed.

So it looks like one of my friends is taking me to his farm to do a little muddin this weekend, and I need some advice. I think there is a couple mud pits (not sure how deep) and possibly some trails.

Any tips on what should be done before I enter the mud pit? Don't want to mess anything up too terribly since it is my DD. Should I air down before hand to increase the surface area of the tire or should I remain at full PSI? I am assuming lockers in 4-lo as fast as possible is the key (but not too fast to hydrolock the engine)? Also, do most people change their dif fluid after mudding or is that only after a bunch of different trips?

Thanks for the help! (any other advice on mudding would be great too!)

Is it a manual... if so I wouldn't do it at all. Make sure you dont go in abive the breather tubes for the diffs/transmission/transfer case or else youll be in trouble. Mud is not good for anything but once you get done check all of your fluids for water. Diff/transmission/tcase/motor. If its a manual do not use the clutch while in the mud. If you get stuck let it die and get them to pull you out

Got an automatic for that reason and stalling going over obstacles, not the strongest manual driver so I figured I would be even worse off-road haha (kinda feel bad I didn't get the man pedal, but I do 95% city driving so manual would get annoying quick).

Good call on the breather tubes, need to find out how high those are located again (think i watched a video on it either on this thread or somewhere on this forum).

Should I just change all of those fluids? Not sure what to look for to tell if water got in (had a camry and a volvo before this Wrangler, wasn't too excited about learning about them, that changed quickly with the Jeep haha). Thanks!

Well if you check all of the fluids and they look like chocolate milk then they need to be changed. I personally would change all of the fluids if you get to the frame rails and up in mud/water. That's me personally but I have a manual and absolutely hate mud. But enjoy the trip and when you get back just make a point of checking your fluids so you dont permanently damage anything. Otherwise you should be fine and hopefully you can get some pics of it

Looks like you have a JK - before hitting the mud put it in 4lo & 1st gear - it won't stall if you stop. Don't go fast, if you're getting stuck fast will only do damage. Ease in using 4lo - 1st if its deep, 2nd if it isn't. It also depends on your gears - I have 3.21 ratio.

I put mine in mud all the time and when the clutch was replaced Jeremy told me the bell housing was dry and clean!

My gears are 4.10 ratio, so my wheel speed isn't very fast. Since I have an automatic, should I "sports shift" in the mud so I can control what gear I am in or should I just leave it to the computer?

You are absolutely right haha, though it is a DD so minimal damage would be nice. Just don't want to get out there and do something stupid that could easily be avoided just with some knowledge (like putting the clutch in under water, if I had a manual)

Someone from here left a blue bag on top of their Jeep, a black wrangler with a RAW sticker in the upper left of the back windshield. I was behind it at lake crabtree when it fell off, let me know if you want it back, or let whoever has that sticker on their soft top know.

I am going to have to agree with Nathan on this one....I like manuals in sports cars, not trucks or jeeps. Burn baby burn!!

I'm sorry guys I like being in full control of what my machine is doing. Little more tricky in some situations, maybe, but we all wear big boy pants and can catch on pretty quick! The same is true for sports cars, Porsche lauds their PDK auto tranny as the best thing since sliced bread, the same for BMW and their heralded dual clutch transmission, I'm sorry, I don't care if they are a tenth of a second quicker here and there because with those systems the computer is driving you and it will NEVER replace the feel of going through those six gears. For me its no different for the jeep, while the autos aren't as fancy as the Porsche and Bimmer tranny's with an auto its still taking away that good old visceral feel of the man in control of his machine. Face it 90 percent of the time our jeeps are ON Road, and I like pulling through the gears way too much to go auto.

True, 90% of the time I wish I had a manual, but that 10% of the time is worth its weight in gold. But I would trade it all for 2 more gears in a manual! Its going to take a huge adjustment after my regear. 4.10s and a 3 speed auto is "different", not sure I'll be driving that brick 80mph again!

Hey guys. I'm heading up to NYC for a few days, but wanted to find out how many people are planning on going to the Fall Jamboree at URE? I would love to get a convoy down there. Is it better to go on Saturday or Sunday?

What do you all think?

URE is a "National Park". I'm not sure what parts of it are closed during the government "slim down". It wouldn't affect the Jamboree but it might be worth calling the Outpost to find out if the trails are open.
