October 11, 2004This is just to see the opinion of other wheelers, I already have my opinion and my reasons so what do you think is the most difficult type of wheelin? Is it mud, rock, sand or the simple drive through the wooded trail. Well I think mud for one major reason the terrain changes with every vehicle that goes through it. It only gets more difficult and deeper than before, a simple ride through a small mud hole can be easy for the guy in the front but only turn into hell for the rear man of the pack. The trick I like to use when muddin in packs is always be the second guy in the pack. So you can see what worked or better yet what didn't for the guy in front of you...<--Four wheeler magazines' tip I decided to use and boy it works. So what do y'all think?

October 11, 2004I would say the most difficult can be the first time driven trail through the woods. Not knowing what to expect forces you to be prepared for all conditions.
October 11, 2004I like the simple drive through the woods, especially if the trails are covered with a couple of inches of mud. Never know where you will end up. .
October 11, 2004probly rocks... althoguht i was buried to my doors in mud the other night
October 11, 2004I say it's rocks hands down. Anyone with enough horse power and the right tires can hold the gas to the floor and clear a mud pit. People even have 2WDs that can make it through the mud.
Rock on the other hand takes alot more driving skill. Finess is the name of the game, not bruit strength. Forces us to drive using 3 legs (manual transmition). And rocks don't just bog you down to the point of being stuck. There can be alot more to getting unstuck on rock than a simple tug from another vehicle, and damage is very likely.
On rock you also need a photographic memory. You need to remember what is on the trail ahead of you, because you won't see it once it is within 30 feet of your rig. At the same time, you must remember what is already under your rig at that moment.
How many people do you see using spotters in the mud? How many people use spotters on rock? Then there is the roll over potential, and a higher risk of carnage in general.
October 11, 2004I say Rockcrawlin wins hands down. But nobody mentioned snow. Snow can turn the whole country side into one giant mudhole. You know all those trails you can do in 2wd? Now go try them with 3 or more feet of snow on it.
October 11, 2004rocks are more technical, mud i think is hardest, becuase you really have to abuse the hell out of your vehicle to get through sometimes..
rocks also you know what you are getting into BEFORE you do it, mud however you never know how it is gonna be, how deep how stuck and what ruts you may or maynot encounter
October 11, 2004Maybe I should clarify the simple drive through the woods. It's a whole lot different then a mud pit. Every try to drive up a hill covered in a couple of inches of mud? Small bumps on the trail tend to push you in the wrong direction, and there isn't a whole lot you can do about it. Like driving in the snow. Once you break traction. Hang on. Might be why it is called a trail RIDE!!!
Not knocking rocks, just a little too slow at times for me.
October 11, 2004the hardest i think is trying to cross a river (or creek) couse you dont know what is going to happen and if the bottom is muddy to where youll sink down to the doors. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE FUNNEST???????????????
