I have an ’82 F150 with a 306 v8 4 speed on the floor brand new clutch tires and transmission. Engine is only 2 years old. I wanna do sumthin special with it but have no great ideas. Open 4 suggestions…
offroad use is horrible for suspension but i would choose that. if you lift it get king suspension because it is lifetime warrenty and u damage anything they will replace it for free. good deal right?
Like is it easier or harder to get stuck? I’m looking into getting a truck with a 9in lift. I like to go Mudding every now and then and didn’t know if one with tht lift would b better or worse? I don’t think it has mud tires on it but they are good tires. Thanks!
If the bottom of your truck is dragging through the mud it’s going to slow you down and/or cause you to get stuck. As the previous poster said…’The higher, the better’.
I own a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500. I love going mudding, but every time I go mudding I always seem to damage my truck. First, I needed to get a new oxygen sensor and the second time I broke a shock in the back. I know that mudding is not good for a truck, but I need to know what to get for my truck so that I can go mudding without severe damage to the truck.
Also, what can I do after mudding to reduce problems from occurring later on?
purdy much you need 4×4. if you have independent front suspension you are limited to what you can do. doesn’t matter how much of a lift you do. you will still have a large dam area pushing mud.
all the vents for the gear cases need tubes fitted so the vents can be raised to a remote place on the truck. keeps the gear cases from getting moisture in em. then you need the appropriate tires with tread to handle the mud. that’s for starters.
then go here and read,
arguably the best place to go and learn. they have done it all. just stay in the noob section till they know yea. you’ll get heavily flamed if you don’t.

I was thinking about buying a raptor and making it into a mudding truck. I was wondering if this was a good idea… and if not what would be a good vehicle to do it with?
yes! of Course!
This truck was MADE to get dirty!
