Depends on your gearing and how thick the mud is. I used to run a 77 chevy though mud pits with my friends back in high school. If it wasn't really thick we kept it in 4 high, but also went through really fast. In thick stuff it was always 4 low. By thick I mean like the consistency of wet cement, so if we used 4 high the transmission would have blown before we left the pit.

I've always used 4 high if I was going fast. 4 low if I slowed it down.

If you have the ponies to turn them Pitbulls running 4 hi will keep the tires clean.

When i mudride back in day in my xj it was always 4hi, but of course the tcase linkage was out of adjustment so using 4lo was out of the equation.
