My first time in the mud!

Yesterday, I tried driving over some mud for the first time ever ! we went to some sort of a temporary water spot where the rain water gather in and there were alot of mud spots around. The commander did well even though the Traction Control was totally off by disconnecting the ABS fuse. I also retried it with the Traction Control turned ON and the Commander did the same with less wheel spin.

I was surprised by how much mud I have collected during those some runs, the mud was every where underneath the car, even it reached over the trans and transfer case !!, I took it to the car wash and they took TWO AND HALF HOURS to clean the car !! and charged me double the cost I usually pay.

When I was driving back home there was very strong vibration in the vehicle, ( it was like dancing in the road), and then I noticed that the rims were all filled with mud and that caused the vibration. I believe I should have drove the car on high speed for some time immediately after I got out of the mud to minimize the mud sticking on the car. (lack of experience)



Here is vid (Traction Control was OFF with ABS fuse disconnected)

Very nice pics Ahmed! That looks like it was fun. I wonder if sandy mud is more slippery and softer then dirt mud?

I like all your pics Ahmed. Something about the bright sun and the color of the sand. Very nice indeed.

I also enjoy hearing your friends talking, cheering, and laughing during your runs. I don't know what they are saying but I can imagine. I think 4x4 guys are the same around the world.

That isn't sand mud ,,, the sand actully does not turn in such mud, the sand which usually I drive on does not hold the water very well.

This is mud is regular mud like what you have, I mean there was no sand on that spot

It's the clay like mud that is like ice. That's the kind we get here. Still bunches of fun though!

Great video Ahmed. My daughter watched it four times!

Great pictures!

Reminds me of my muddin’ days. We’d head out to the Yakima river to the sloppy pudding stuff. No roof, no doors. You weren’t considered ‘’worthy’’ if you didn’t get totally plastered with mud yourself, let alone the Jeep. We’d even get into ‘’mudball fights’’ too.

I actually raised my driveway by 4 inches by cleaning off all the mud after a weekend of muddin’ and eventually had a backhoe come in and scrape it off to level it out again.

Nowadays, with the Commander, you can go play in the mud while wearing a suit and tie.

One thing about mud, it tends to fill up the tire tread, which makes you lose traction. Turning off traction control and running it hard helps because that flings the mud out so you can get tire knobbies back again for grip.
