Mostly desert. There is water out there though.

Mudding?

I'm still waitin for some good muddin' pictures. All I see is some street iron with some slop lightly splattered on it.

We used to have to run double windshield washer pumps on 4 gallon reservoirs. And we went thru replacement wiper inserts every month. The wiper-ed area on the windshield was the only spot you could see out anywhere. On my CJ I would have to duct tape the vent blower intake on the cowl shut so the heatbox and heater core wouldn't keep getting packed with dried mud.. Also ran the engine intake into the passenger compartment, wrapped the distributor with shrink wrap (with a vent to the firewall) and ran the differential vents all the way to the top of the roll cage.

Mud water over the hood and halfway up the windshield with all 4 digging and slinging was great fun. Hard on brakes though. I kept 4 wheel drums which actually far outlasted the discs (whose calipers would seize after a bit of good mudding).

We had to drive down the boat ramps and cruise around in the shallows to get most of the mud off, else it would take $15 at the quarter car wash every time we went out.

We all had quik drains on our trannys, motors, diffs, and tfer cases.
Nobody had parking brakes cause the mud would ruin the cables in short order.

Great fun, but not what you want to do with the same machine that takes you to work every day.

I'll scan some old pics.

Nice pics, those trails looks sweet!

Mc Collinster--lets see your pics man cant wait, you should definately scan some.

Btw thats alot of mud on the jeeps we went in for stock vehicles, you know if it had wider tires like most of the mudding trucks that go past the fenders and fender deflecters (if it has them) those jeeps we went in would be covered if the fenders didnt catch most everything.

I wasn't trying to hack on you guys. Looks like great fun.

It just brought back sweet memories of the days when all I had to be concerned with was making enough money to keep wheel bearings, ring & pinions, and U-joints in my CJ, gas in my outboards, and fresh knobbies on my motocrossers. That, and making good enough grades to keep my nighttime curfew suitably late...

You guys need to get Cattitude to post some pics of his ride. That's a REAL 4x4. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll read this??? How 'bout it Ken?
