Mud is a lot of fun and it can be a lot of work but it isn't really all that hard on stuff. Lots of guys here get away with 37" Boggers on stock D30 axles. You have to finesse it some but you would be surprised how long a D30 will last.
Obviously if you are punching out all the time and spinning the tires hard in every hole things are going to break.
We are very blessed with fantastic trails just a few miles from home. Many of the trails aren't super long, under 10 miles start to finish, but they can take 5 hours or more because of how technical they are. Tight twisty hill climbs with creeks and swamps along the way. We don't take many pictures/video of the trail because it's kinda boring but the majority of the trail is very exciting.
This is our typical group on one of our wheeling adventures.
Typical over nighter for this group. We do this every weekend all summer long.
This trail system is about 10 miles from home. The Green trail is very technical and very challenging. Dozens of creeks, and mud holes with several significant climbs along the way. We usually camp on The Bench at 1600'. During spring and fall this trail is a 38" tire and bigger trail. Its about 5 miles from end to end on the green trail and takes 4-6 hours on a good day when you are with a group of 8-10 rigs. Sometimes the more capable rigs just drag the less capable rigs through the holes.
The Red trail is also very fun. Starts at 400' and ends at 2400' in elevation. Dozens of creek and mud hole crossings. It's much more popular and only takes about 1.5 hours on a good day.
