With a nice open area & sloppy mud like that the MOD you would want to have is the Locker/A-TRAC hack. You can engage the Locker in 2WD & have Posi in the rear to do nice donuts & spray the mud everywhere...

Toyota, showing what great knowledge they've accumulated over years of producing Land Cruisers and pickups, installed idler pulleys on the FJ's serpentine belt which don't use sealed bearings. Mudding, going through deep water, and just hitting puddles hard will cause very premature failure of the bearings. If you are lucky, you'll still be under warranty. If not, you can do as many others do and replace the pulleys with aftermarket sealed bearing pulleys for $100-150 (for the set).
