Another thing about not using the clutch. Buried/submerged starters often crap out. One reason why I try to shut down as little as possible while on a mudding trip, and I never shut down on purpose while stuck. It can be similar to the difference in moving an awake drunk, and a passed out drunk. I usually will leave a passed out one where they lay lol.

If your mud has water in it be minful of you electronics.

Next time you go spray your underside with Pam or some other spray on cooking oil. It will make clean up much easier.

Hell yeah you cant beat some slipping around and slinging. I had fun last sat. myself. Went out with a different group than normal. had fun laughing at 2 full size trucks getting stuck and beat up as me an a xj pulled em both through. I did end up breaking a u joint in my front axle, but no big deal. Not sure if it was from wear or me diving into a hole and literally jumping out the other side. I had the front popped up in the holes a couple times. We have some deep pockets with with water/ruts at the bottom and with the river at near flood stage. It was sloppy down there.
