    Mudboggin with the 1/16 Digger




    While I was installing the 4wd into the mini Digger my son was out digging a mudbog for testing
    The truck did awesome!!

    Who else has a mudbog in their back yard?? My son calls his the "MUDBOG OF DOOM"

    I added inner fenders up front and blanked out the rear cutouts in the body... The truck stays suprisingly clean under the body but the smile on my 6yr old son's face while he is muddin makes cleaning the truck worth every second

    Any pics of that mod? Wish I could have a mudbog... Sand and water don't work lol. I usually let my 4yr old daughter drive hers in the sand trap of the golf course in my parents backyard. 4x4 conversion is the best upgrade for this truck Still debating letting her take it to the beach this weekend though.

    No pics of the inner fender mod. I re-make them using Gorilla tape every time we go mudbogging... considering the amount of mud they stop I was worried they would restrict too much air flow during normal driving. My son has already asked if we can mudbog this weekend so I will try to remember to take a few pics after I put the inner fenders in

    If you wanted a mudbog you could just dig a pit and get a bag or 2 of topsoil to make your mud... just remember you will destroy a few bearings while muddin and I do a complete tear down and cleaning of the truck every time it goes muddin

    you would still want to do a clomplete tear down,clean, and rebuild after it gets wet.

    The tear down and cleaning go fairly quickly and its part of the fun
    Ceramic bearings are expensive and I think we would still destroy a few in the long run but stainless screws are an upgrade this truck will be getting
