if you want a mud truck, your best bet is to consider a V8 swap and then run a somewhat higher gear ratio for wheel speed, but if the engine swap is not feasible, go for the lowest gear ratio, that will help you keep the tires turning...you arent going to be throwing mud in the air, but you may not get stuck as easily

if you do decide to swap in a V8, then also consider an auto trans, they work better then a manual for a mud truck since there is less lag between gears, and no clutch to get packed full of mud
