Going 'muddin'

Happy Saturday! Met a lovely gal last night that invited me to go "muddin'" at the end of June.

First - I hope that "mudding" isn't a euphemism for some kind of weird romantic activity.

Second - Suggestions for preparing my rig for the beating she's likely to put on it. I have a 2018 JLU Sahara. Its completely stock except for the upgrade to T/A K02s (17" but relatively stock size and position).

This is my first and, while I'm excited, I don't want to damage anything. What do you guys and gals suggest I do to prepare?

Seriously though - what is the typical prep for a mud-bog session?

Thx - Stovebolt

Wow. My first thought is, Gal invited you to go muddin' You may just want to ask her to marry you now.

Secondly "If" it's the other euphemism ... then you absolutely should ask her to marry you now. lol

But seriously - In any and all things (including things Jeep-centric) don't EVER do anything You aren't comfortable with.

Mud washes off. You will want to treat your Black plastic fenders etc if you have those. They do not love mud.

I'd spray the entire under carriage with a release-agent like fluid film, WD-40, etc so the mud washes off easier. A can or two is cheap and easy compared to hours with a high pressure washer.

Personally I'm not a fan of muddin' close second is rock crawling on purpose.
Just isn't my thing but I'm in the Pocono Mountains of N/E Pa.
I like trails, Beach (OBX) Farms w/streams and open old growth forest's etc.

To each their own.... but, yes on the pre-work in order to make clean-up easier and more thorough.

Have fun w/your new friend "dirty girl" if you marry her - forget I just said that

Just be prepared to get stuck lol. And have a few ways to get out. RubiconSS is correct! I still have mud from the very first time. It pretty much stains your Jeep unless you put something on the bumpers and plastic. If you can't get mud tires till then I would start with the basics. You should have a little recovery kit with some decent tow straps, d-rings, shovel and I'm hoping she has the winch. One cool thing that has gotten me out of some deep stuff are these Recovery traction blocks.


Everything I listed I have in the jeep at all times. Your most likely gonna get mud all over the inside of your jeep so if you don't want something muddy like your seats then get some seat covers. Hopefully you already have the all weather matts. Just take it easy and have fun. Don't go too crazy with a stock jeep on A/T. Hope that helps

When I was a teen in south GA we called putting your 4x4 in the mud bogging. Then I met a gal from FL who said its called mudding and bogging referred to that romantic activity you mentioned. Wonder what happened to her? My point is terms change by region but a girl who enjoys doing stuff in a Jeep is cool as he^%! Go have fun. Just use common sense and never go into a hole you have either watched someone else go thru first or which you have checked the depth of first. Never go off-roading with just one vehicle. It can be a long walk back.

I use my CB mostly on group rides. Still waiting on society to goto hell to use it for survival!!
