the mud wasn't bad, just about 2ft deep I would guess. the entire trail wasn't difficult (but fun) and that climb was tough due to it being so slick and steep. that's why I came out of there covered in mud had to clean the windshield off so I could see the rest of the trail

I'm not a mud guy either, but I didn't have much of a choice once I got to that point. (ran it twice)

my favorite trail so far. I didn't get a chance to run Hump Trail or Python though.

Go to the right and skip the mudhole. You would have liked the Hump Trail. Python is pretty simple in a rig like yours unless you drive it in 2wd.

When we went thru big ugly, a group of guys came running to watch us... But I disappointed them because I didn't want to get covered in mud. I guess next time we will have to run it.

It's great to have a pic of your rig not stuck or on it's side.

Where is that at?
