    Sand

    We don't get a lot of mud here in the high desert, espically this year, so between rocks and sand...I'll take sand. It's smooth and you can go faster. :D

    I put rocks, but I really like all three. You don't get as dirty on rocks as you get in mud, but then you can do doughnuts in the sand.:D

    Being a 2wd, rocks are definately the easiest to conquer. I still enjoy mud and sand, though sometimes I dig too many sand holes. Splat's really good at skipping across mud though, 33" XTerrains and 350+ lb-ft are good for that :D

    Rocks don't give!!! haha, that's my mato. I don't really mind rocks but i avoid them if possible. I do like to stick it in low range and do a little bit of crawling since i put my locker in the rear it is alot easier. But mud is funner!!

    Happy trails!!

    I like sand, you dont got to clean it off and it dont do any damage. and overall its pretty fun, all the little particles can get annoying, but at least it wont get the floor mats all dirty while your muddin

    I didnt list that on purpose. I realize that each presented its own chalenges. I figured, if I would have put that option every one would put that answer and I would still be sitting here wondering which one they liked best.

    Sand if fun but it is oh so evil. once you get that stuff up on your truck itll chew it apart. Ive run the mudholes down in NJ Pines which is basically a mixture of sand and clay and that stuff is absolute murder on a truck.

    My truck comes home cleaner than it left!

    But in the summer I prefer mud; rocks beat the truck and me to death, and sand is, well, just like sandpaper without the paper.

    my area allows for all of the above except rocks, and id have to say mud is the most fun but its a b*tch to clean up, sticks to everything! sand is fun and clean, especially hills. i vote for mud even though i prefer to clean up after sand.

    Rocks all the way!!!!
    Sand and mud are to missy and the only thing we do is get dirty.

    Rocks are the best because if you screw up you come home with all the reminders of how bad you drove and it doesn't wash off.
