Stock for stock, yes. I'd say that.

You can start modifying one or both, but then you'll start breaking stuff and having maintenance issues. I think you'd be shocked what a stock Mule or Ranger would go thru w/o breaking a sweat.

That's a foolish guarantee.

This guy proved that wrong.

You missed my point....if you have one, you will never need one. The guy in the photo above must be a democrat Only a democrat will have all the tools to get something done but will still want someone to help them.....a handout if you will.

He did come and find us and ask for help but a jeep with a 8klb warn winch snatch blocked to him and tied off to another jeep that was tied off to a tree never moved him.

A winch doesn't guarantee anything.

Mud sucks.

A jeep with a 8Klb winch and snatch block rating at 16klbs tied off to whatever could not pull out a 1500lb UTV......Ya well not only was the UTV owner a democrat....so were both the jeep owners....and the damn tree. That is ridiculous.

I got my truck stuck once, pretty deep with practically no tread.
Friend with a jeep pulled me out with a 8000 lb winch. Winch wasnt strong enough, so one person controlled the winch, they backed their jeep up and I floored it.
We got it out no problem. Sometimes a winch alone won't do it, but it definitely helps.

It was more quicksand than mud. He needed a backhoe to pull him up and out. But I'm sure y'all could have done it vs a couple of guys with built jeeps that wheel every other weekend.

A small correction if I may...

A winch doesn't guarantee you won't get stuck any more than an umbrella guarantees it won't rain. A winch CAN help make sure you don't remain stuck. Of course, don't go into a mud hole without a suitable winch point in reach or you are just screwed.

To answer the question, at our ranch we have 4x4s, tractors, dozers, UTVs and ATV's. When it is muddy, we leave all the heavy stuff put up and use the ATVs and UTVs. They simply are better for the job. They go through the soft stuff better and don't tear the place up. Nothing pisses off a landowner more than ruts everywhere after a rain. We lease one piece of our property to hunters. If they brought in modded off-road trucks and tore the place up, we would have new hunters next year.
