Growing Pains - The Pit

Posted in News on May 27, 2014

Any great, long-lasting publication is certainly going to go through its fair share of growing pains, and Mud Life is no different. We’ve been through a couple editors and writers looking for the right combination, but our brand has yet to change course. I’ve been with the magazine for a little over three years now and I have watched it grow into one of the most exciting brands in the automotive industry seemingly overnight. This incredible rise in popularity is due no doubt in part to the million-plus fans who follow Mud Life online. We plan to keep feeding you a daily does of mud until you just can’t take any more. I am taking over the lead role for Mud Life, and I am really interested to hear what you have to say about the overall brand. Feel free your email your questions or comments to I’ll try to respond to as many as I can.

South Florida is where I was born and raised, and mud trucks or buggies were parked at nearly every driveway around town in the Acreage. I can clearly remember installing my first body lift on an ’89 Chevy S-10 with some buddies in my driveway, a few basic tools, and little to no knowledge on the subject. We slapped a set of 31x10.5 BFG all-terrain tires on 15-inch “white wagon” wheels that rubbed on everything during any turn. This rig took my friends and me all over the woods and we buried it countless times. Unfortunately, those woods are all gone now and some corporate bank building is in its place, but I can still remember those woods and the great times we had mudding in our trucks. Nowadays I spend most weekends at mega truck events with some really good buddies, a Captain- n-Coke, and a badass Canon camera trying to get the best shot for anyone who couldn’t make it out. Mud Life is a brand my buddies and I truly support, and we all know you do too. Keep sharing our Internet posts at and spread the word about Mud Life! So, where will we see you next?
