Every morning I go and lift with a buddy of mine. On the way back we always notice a fishing hole. Well today we decided to go check it out....but the problem was we never made it.

1 pissed wife, 3 hours, 2 jeeps, tow truck, 2 winches later...we were free.

Looks like nasty mud, but you could get out with two jeeps and two winches? I have pulled poeple out of worse by just using a strap.

It doesn't look all that bad if you just look at the hole itself but as they say looks can be deceiving.

Yea, sorry about hte pictures size. Forgot this site doesn't auto resize. :) (Fixed it)

1 jeep with winch
1 jeep with tow strap

Exactly Dan, that was no worse than anything else we went through this morning. But as soon as we hit it. BAM, we dropped at least a foot. It was just a HUGE hole that was filled.

Oh well, made for a great morning....and had to use half a vacation day lol.

nice stuck. i am convinced mud is more trouble than it's worth. thanks for refreshing my memory. a jeep cant pull you out of something like that because it's gross weight is so much less than yours. he was probably winching on you and pulling the jeep toward the X.

That reminds me of the mud back home in Missouri. Nasty stuff. Worse is I had a car and you try to pull in the car wash and there would be a 3ft by 8 ft pile in the stall from the trucks. :cyclopsani:

That kinda looks like my lawn after someone drove over it. I think there is a well that runs under it. It LOOKS solid, but it has swallowed like 5 4X4's and 2 Semi trucks! I got bogged down in it in my X last fall. Trying to back a trailer of gravel. No rock in sight! Once the bottom floats it, you are done! 4 wheel drive means nothing.

Jeff,

I got stuck in the mud (actually had two wheels in the air after falling into a big rut) here in TX.

I was chastised for offroading with street tires by the Jeepers (actually a tractor) that helped get me out. Are your tires stock - and do you think that mud terrain tires would have prevented you from getting stuck?

Thanks for sharing a not so shining moment!

Doug

Maybe my previous post was ignorant - sorry. :geek: I though you were running the BFG Rugged Trails (stock), but after looking again at the pix, I suspect you are already running some sort of MT.

Which brand and make of tire is it?

Thanks!

LOL Doug! I was wondering why you might think they were stock tires, so I looked at the pictures again...and you can't even tell what kind of tires they are because of the goup! That's great...

For my tires I have what Keith linked above. I love them and they work great.

By time I got done getting stuck my 4 tires were pretty much off the ground. I couldn't get a picture fast enough but I had leveled out the ground underneath the truck, I wasn't going anywhere.

Here is a picture of the tires clean.

Actually, that's not right.

These are my tires. Linky

But those look pretty sweet Keith.

Stuck or not, it looks like fun.

How are those tires?

Where did you get them?
