Mud Modifications?
 
Hi all, I'm in Northern Illinois and use my Jeep for a lot of fishing/hunting adventures and a lot of messing around in the mud and woods. As you can imagine it's not exactly mountainous around here and I like to consider myself as a practical guy. So most of the mod's I've added are to help me out in situations I'd be in. So knowing that; any recommendations on other mods that would be great to have? I know a winch is probably next up and a snorkel would help those really deep water/mud holes!:dance:

Quick rundown
2.5" suspension lift
32in mud tires
4.10 gear
Front bumper with brush guard

Other mods but those are the applicable ones !

Thanks :)

Winch, front locker, shovel, a friend, rear locker if you have the 44, and I am sure some more ideas are out there.

I'm near Rockford and I think a snorkel would because I like to go through big water holes!

If you're going through puddles deep enough to need a snorkel you have a whole host of other things to waterproof. Going into any puddle deeper than maybe mid grille is asking for trouble.

They're right. You've got to extend breather tubes for the at least the t-case and tranny. Those are the two lowest. The diff breathers end at about the height of the hood.
