New Jersey Mud Types/Rating

Some new Jeep owners are hitting the NJ mud puddles pretty hard.
Squeaky brakes, axle seals, differential fluid questionws are getting a lot of attention.


So I thought a thread on mud types might be fun or useful.
Here goes;

Black Mud - Mostly organic material; softer than steel shafts and seals. But will stain paint if not washed off within 24 hours.

Yellow mud - Mostly sand; harder than steel, will eventually destroy seals and shafts. Stays in axle tubes behind factory splash gaurd on fron axle shaft.

Orange mud - Sand and clay mixed. Finer particules than sand and difficult to wash off. Stays on seals .

Gray mud - Clay Finer particules than sand and difficult to wash off. Stays on seals . Will penetrate air filters.

Mud depth - Like water depth, around 36 inches deep will push past axle and pinion seals and disc brake seals, which are designed to keep oil in (the seal pressure lip is turned in)

I got some of that yellow clay stuff on the XJ once ... it never washed off some underbody & trim. I eventually had to paint over it!
