Agreed. I sold my 99 TJ to an employee here a few months back when her 98 was condemned by our Service Department. The problem? Her boyfriend mudded with it all the time, and the frame flat-out rotted from the inside out. Her TC skid plate was held in by one bolt.
I took my 99 mudding one time, and vowed to never bother again for the reasons Jerry said. Picking up my new 06 on Monday...don't plan to mud that one, either. I am way too neurotic about Northeast Frame Rot Issues...
