Don't give up, just work through the issues. I've never had any off-road vehicle that I didn't have to modify to meet my needs. The manufacturers don't build an all purpose, great at everything, non-stoppable vehicle. There is no such thing as one size fits all -- every design is a compromise.

I've lost count of the number of times mine has been buried. Had mud coming in through the windshield and been towed out of a few. Never had a problem or over heated.

cleaned the radiator with a pressure washer the best I could without removing all the front end tupperware and tried to make it overheat but it never got higher than 4 bars on the gauge , I guess the previous owner left some mud caked up in it and I filled it up the rest of the way until it was fully coated , bought a used set of wheels with 32 inch k9s today so Im ready to give it another try

After you clean the rad hold a flashlight behind it and make sure you can see light coming through it that way you know it actually was cleaned. Mud can get baked in there like cement and a pressure washer sometimes won’t even clean it. I’ve seen where a rad has had to been removed from the machine capped off and then soaked in water till it loosened everything up.

As I said before , there were 2 other buggies with me riding thru the same stuff , neither of them were snorkled ( set up for mud ) one of them actually tried to go thru the middle of this mudhole and got stuck with the hood submerged until I pulled it out . Neither of them had issues .
What were the other two machines

Another vote for TCP, after going to 33’s, tune, charge tubes, etc., I noticed the load was increasing my temps.

TCP is stout. Huge difference in operating temps and the mudder version cleans itself 1,000 times better.
