Keep your tires spinning and momentum up, after your done be sure to hose out brakes, bushings, pretty much whole under carriage to help prevent wear. Also dont go through water past the drivers headlight, your intakes right behind there and 4.0s dont like drinkin water lol

If you run a rod through the block your engine was already nearing end of life or you weren't maintaining it.

FYI... I don't know how big this mud bog is... but a stock XJ (open/open diffs assuming) has no business being in it...lol

Also... if you decide to do it, please make sure you have adequate recovery points
