I know it is time for snow play, but I never done a mud trail in 4 wheeling. I was wondering if there are mud trails around Bay Area?
Hollister probably gets a lot of mud, but it's got too much incline decline which is sure thing for the flip over in the mud :). I guess, I am looking for a semi flat trails that usually not hard, but get muddy during fall, winter times.

Hollister is a great place during the rainy season. I have no interest in mud, thanks to the detriment it causes to the vehicle. :)

Come on you cal always wash it off :).
You think you can but you can never get it all out.

Mud is fun , its great to learn your jeeps capabilities. Only problem is as previously mentioned it tears your shit up. I just try and stay away now and avoid any temptation.

2-3 hours of fun, 6 hours of cleaning. I'll stick to the rocks. I heard J-Mac's a big fan of mud runs. Loves getting his rig all gunked up. PM him. :grinpimp: Youtube's got a few fun Hollister trips to give you an idea what to expect there.

Jim that picture is gross. I don't mind washing the mud off, but man that stuff gets in everywhere. The worst damage is always the bushings and the seals that take the beating.

Don't get me wrong, I grew up redneck and have had my fair share of mud runs, and now no longer have those vehicles due to the repair needed to fix em :)

Ha ha, yeah, I am sure J-Mac will chime in and suggest a great place for mud run :).

Except that one time at Hollister when you drove into a hole

I completely agree with Sludge on this one. After a soupy experience in January of 2009 at Carnegie, I find myself still cleaning mud out of the air ventilation system, and instrument panel!

Sounds like mud is really, really bad. I thought it was bad only for the IFS differentials like I used to have on Tacoma and solid axle are ok. Well, I guess I didn't think of all the little air vents and gaps we have under the jeep.

I'll pass on the mud/clay we get around Sacramento. Too much work for the fun you have driving through it. Rocks/snow/dust are ok by me...

We're getting near winter wheeling now. Time to start planning some runs!

That's my problem. I try and stay out of it but somehow it's like a magnet.

Actually thinking about it I had no idea that hole was so deep. I went through the hole right next to it and it was dried up. LOL.

Mud rinse option

Suggested mud removal methods...

Boat launch method: ... go to your nearest fresh water boat launch ... no boat necessary ... pay the launch fee if necessary ... drive in & soak 2 minutes ... drive in & out repeatedly until desired rinse is achieved...

River method: ... find river with rocky bed ... drive into area with fast moving water ... drive in various directions ...
