Best Tundra Mudding Videos

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.
