Use 4-low so you don't burn up the clutch.

Dont shift when yer in the mud, good way to fill the clutch/ pressure plate/ flywheel with mud

This is a great thing to remember. If you are stuck in the mud and need to change gears, kill the engine, change the gear, and then restart it in gear. You can't hurt anything doing that, and besides being pulled out it is really all you can do. The manuals in our jeeps are not sealed units.

Momentum/ rpm's/ keep the wheels spinning to clear them out.

My philosophy... If you need to shift your already stuck. Pin it to win it. Slow + mud = fail

Yeah. If I lose momentum at all I try to back out before I am too stuck. The sad truth is. Mud commands that you have a pretty good amount of horsepower. Our Jeeps aren't exactly the most powerful 4x4 on the trail. Where we may shine in making insane torque at low RPM, mud is a challenge and requires some tricky technical driving.

X2 when in doubt throttle out!! 2nd and low will bite and give you enough speed.
