Best Tundra Mudding Videos

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

The Toyota Tundra is one tough truck, which has helped to make it a popular platform for mudding. For anyone unfamiliar with the sport, “mudding” (also known as “muddin“) is the act of taking a pickup through one or more deep mud holes without getting stuck – or at least, without getting stuck too badly.

Some people choose to mod their Tundras for more effective mud play, while others run what they brung and take their stock rigs through the pits without batting an eye. Either way, it makes for some entertaining video footage. Let’s take a look at some of the best Toyota Tundra mudding videos available online.

This Tundra owner decides to fully master his particular mud pit by running through it both forwards and backwards. His truck features a six-inch Fabtech lift with 37-inch Nitto rubber.

Not all Tundra drivers have as smooth a mud pit experience as the owner in our first video. This much smaller pit offers a big challenge to the modded white pickup on camera.

This next video is a family affair, with Dad running through his own backyard mud pit while his offspring watches. Sometimes mud can look deceptively easy to get through.

If you don’t mind sitting through a bit of an introduction, this video offers a fun look behind the scenes of filming a Tundra commercial in a huge mud bog. The camera angles are great and the action seems like a lot of fun for the pros who were paid to just play in the pit all day long.

Three Toyotas in a row take on this mud pit, with the latest generation bringing up the rear behind a huge wave of water and muck.

We’re including this next video as an example of what not to do when filming trucks in the mud. The camera operator here seems to either have a lot of faith in the driver of the Tundra he is filming, or is simply confident that Mother Nature and gravity will slow the truck down in time. Note to self: Never stand directly in front of a speeding truck, no matter how steep the hill looks.

We’ll leave you with an example of how even the best-laid plans can go wrong out in the mud pit. This mighty Tundra has bitten off a bit more than it can chew here as it tries to dig its way out of what must have looked like fairly solid ground when he first drove into it. His buddy’s directions don’t offer much help, but if you don’t get stuck at least once out in the mud, you probably aren’t having as much fun as you could be.

    cool, the last video the guy should’ve turned the steering wheel to the far left or far right and tried backing up because no way was he going any further forward with the hill in its way. He needed to try something different. I once got stuck in 4wd by backing up off the road into a 4-5′ ditch and my back end got sunk into the hole big time since I did not see the culvert/ditch on the side of the road with massive snow covering it up. I had traction on only the left rear wheel with my front end sticking straight up in the front no traction. I used my ice fishing boat cushion and the misses to keep throwing the boat cushion in front of my left rear wheel and finally made it out after over 1 hour of doing this and spinning out the boat cushion several 100 times. Not fun at all but was too cheap to call a tow truck in the middle of nowhere. I don’t know about you, but I would never go thru that kind of mud/water with a 30K+ truck unless you got money to burn.

    mk – That’s a good story – I’ve been stuck a few times and it’s the worst, but *especially* when the wife is there (at least for me). Her presence makes me feel a lot worse about the whole thing, LOL.

    If I take a truck into a mud hole, I do so with the knowledge that someone with a bigger truck and/or a big winch is nearby.

  3. mk says:

    I hear ya Jason on the wife along getting stuck. Boy, was she ticked off for a very, very long time.

  4. Mickey says:

    I went through several mud holes with the wife at that because she wanted to see the state park. I will not do it again just like MK stated by putting a $42,000 truck just to take the chance of getting stuck. It still has markings under the hood from the dirt water/mud. It won’t clean off. I’m just not into the mudding thing. I can watch it but doing it without having major money to burn holds you back. Not to mention getting old also.

  5. Jason (Admin) says:

    mk – LOL. I can only imagine. I got stuck in some sand once and she just kept looking at me like “you idiot.”

    Mickey – I don’t blame you – it’s risky business unless you’ve got support nearby.

  6. TXTee says:

    $35K+ truck or $3500 quad? That’s why I ride the quad offroad and let the truck just tow it there! After this past weekend and the chore of washing the mud off the quad, there’s no way in heck I’ll ever take the truck through a mud pit.

  7. Jason (Admin) says:

    TXTee – Sound reasoning to be sure. Besides, the Quad is probably more fun.

  8. TXTee says:

    ….and burns way less fuel. LOL

  9. Jason (Admin) says:

    TXTee – True again. You are one smart lady, lady. 🙂

    Great stories everyone – thanks for sharing. I can remember mudding with my two-wheel drive ’86 F-150 as a teenager, burning through flooded fairgrounds in the faint hope that momentum would keep us from getting irrevocably stuck in muck and mire that we weren’t supposed to be playing in in the first place.

    Two-wheel drive mudding is truly the province of those who really don’t know any better.

    Benjamin – LOL. I hear that.
