    Well, we got a little bored friday and decided to do a little field bombing to see how my new tires would do... The Heavy Chevy made it thru everything I could throw at it (within reason of course since I havent lifted it yet)

    j/w - what's the PSI of that pressure washer? I've been looking at buying one, bought a cheapo 1450psi one on sale at Home Depot, brought it back the next day, my garden hose is more powerful.

    Likely a 6" lift with 35" tires, still to be decided as it needs to be able to do some plowing:nod:

    I would think a diesel would be excellent for bogging with all the torque.

    Nice pics. That last shot of the emblems with mud on them looks like something Chevy would use for a brochure ad. That pic is awesome.

    My truck has never bin that dirty and I hope never will. That's way to nice of a truck to fling mud, rocks and gravel at!

    Diesels are too heavy in the front end for mudding IMO

    hate to say it :dizzy: but i kind of agree with yaz. i like your truck. it looks cool muddy. but unless its covered under warrantee and you dont care because your trading it in anyway, i wouldnt bring it offroad. unless your babying it in a puddle just to get it muddy. any real off roading with something worth twenty or thrity k. no way. been there done that. learned my lesson. expensive lesson. this is coming from someone with experience ruining many vehicles (mostly trying to cross small rivers). keep yours on the tar and talk your friends into using their trucks. or buy a beater truck and throw lockers, lift, snorkel and winch on it.. that trucks for pulling horse trailers. its to long and big for treacherous terrain and too nice and expensive to dent in the fenders. your lifting the wrong truck. jmo

    much better. hell, i think i like it better than your duramax. go back to beating the duramax. just kidding the scottdale is a truck you dont mind pushing a tree limb or two with and if it has lockers i bet it will go through almost any mud hole.

    give us some video feeds of her goin. maybe post em on utube and give us a link

    congrats. good decision. nice mud truck.
