I have a 5.9 that got stuck in a mud puddle. Literally 3" of water. But I'm not set up for mudding. I agree with the set up being important

I wasn't trying to be a smartass. Just saying the driver is as important, if not more, than drivetrain or suspension setup

Watching an old episode of cops. (90s episode) and the cops chase and arrest two guys that stole a 5.2 zj. Makes me mad that someone would steal a zj. But. I cant say they dont have good taste.

The fun of a full-size 4x4 is mudding with it. It's too big and heavy to do anything else, but delivering stupid amounts of power into the squicky stuff to keep your mud paddles spinning is something they can deliver.
