Mudding

Not a lot of rocks to crawl around these parts, but lots and lots of muddy, clay-filled trails and sandy beaches. Will the Sport S with limited slip differential do me alright, you think? No way i can float the cash for a rubi, so it'll have to do. Just wondering how it'll do.

Aside from the stock tires clogging up in the clay, it'll do fine.

Pick up a 12v air compressor so you can air down to 12-15 psi on the beach and it'll do great.

Invest in a power washer. Trust me on this.

Heh, yeah I know about airing down. Took my dirtbike with big wide tires out on the beach, and couldn't understand why i had no control at all. Kept falling over in the powder. (This is with a 130 tire up front and a 180 in the back). Aired down to 7psi, and all of a sudden I was rocking that beach. I miss that bike. Some asshat stole it :/

Would have been a perfect match with a Commando JK too:

Just got back from the St Lucie Mud Jam. Second time I took my 2012 JK there. I have Toyo Open Country 285-60-18's Auto with 3.21's and it is a blast in the mud and water.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10100126477155958
