4wheeling tomorrow,i got a ????

If youv'e seen my pics, you know i love thrashing a brand new truck,...


MY QUESTION IS AT THE END::


I went out today in one of my buddies jeeps,...its the same place we always go......but we got some rain....alot,....the 30 acres of mud holes is the worst i've ever seen it.....so of course 6 of us are going out tomorrow...

1 --f250 4x4(mine),
1 --bronco w stock tires( i always have to pull him out)
2 --jeep cj's, 1 has a winch
1-- old 60's ARMY jeep kaiser(semi stock tires)
1 --chevy s10 4x4

i'm already going to prep the truck for the worst it's ever seen
WD40 the entire undercarriage, tape up my zoodad, air down...any others???

my question is... will removing the sway bar help any? and what else should i prep???

Sounds like ya got all the ends tied up.....Just bring a few different lengthed straps....And I reccomend after your done spray some simplegreen all over to remove the wd40....thats what I do on the bike....I coat it with wd40, after im done at the track I use a whole bottle of SG then coat the bike with wd40 again and run it like that...dirt just dont stick.

Jay, interestingly enough, i use cooking oil on my quad, i take a paper towel, lightly cover it, and smear it all over the quad, wipe the excess off, and run it. when i come home i use "GUNK" degreaser all over, and clean off the cooking oil. it looks like brand new after too

the thing with using wd40 or pam or cooking oil on my plastics on my quad is that if you hit sand or dust it will all stick
