Okay my jeep is a 95' YJ and I know how to drive it on the road. But tomorrow I'm taking it off the road and into the mud! I was wondering how exactly do I go mudding on a stick?! Like do I shift? Stay at first? 4 hi 4 low. And it's a 3.5 inch lift with 33 12.5 inch tires. Please all the advise and even better a step by step would be awesome thanks!

I almost always stay in 1st gear in my five speed while off roading. In 4LO I already have so much torque I never need to shift really. But if you need to shift - your instincts will take over.

Hope this helped! Good luck! :thumb:

are you in a 4 or 6 cylinder ? i like to use 4 hi in the mud because you can run a higher rpm and mash it if you have to 4 lo is more fore if you get stuck or hill climbing i run 1st and 2nd usually and im in a 6 cylinder all my buddies have 4 cylinders and they always use 2nd

I always get water and dirt in the tranny through the shift tower when mudding or water crossing. I don't mud anymore because of it
