You would be supprised what a set of tires would do for your buddy... stock goodyears suck on dry pavement let alone mud. The WK is a VERY capable vehicle.

X2

If we were talking about rock crawling, then I would agree that the wj is superior simply because of the solid front axle. But when it come to mud, a good set of tires and decent 4 wheel drive system is everything.

Re: wj vs wk

That's exactly what I was implying. My 4.7 with duratracs and lift is a beast in the mud
