I wish i had taken pics that day, but i was too damn P.O to do so. It was my first and only time ever getting stuck. I went to the country side of Michigan, about 2 hours up north, to some random ATV area, not even a legit park, and i was just cruising around there in 2WD. By the way, this is when i was still very new to wheelin'. I approached a rut that looked about 2 feet deep, and was about 14 feet wide. I had no idea what ruts where, so please, have mercy. I put it in 4HI and started to gain momentem into the rut. I was going through it like a champ until finally the front diff then the rear diff got caught up on the center of the rut, and my tires where free floating. My front bumper was underwater, i couldnt really get out of the jeep. I had no idea what to do. Oh, wanna hear something sad? I was alone. It was 90+ degress that day, and i was bogged down with the jeep just sitting there, the jeep disapointed at me that i even attempted to go through such a deep rut. I spent some serous alonr time with her there. It was so deep, i could lay down under my tires under the water comfortably. Finally got someone to help me out. This post is taking too long, so i will shorten it up by saying the day ended off with him trying to pull me out for 6 hours straight, the tow strap flying back hitting my rear spare (you are probably wondering how scaring that sounded being in the drivers seat),(wanna see a pic?) finally getting me out, giving him 60$, a big hug and a lunch on me. Since that day i learned many things from REAL WORLD experince: Never wheel alone, never wheel when temps are past 90+ degress, always keep more than one tow strap, never go through a rut that you dont know the depth of unless someone has a wench, always carry food and water (sounds drastic but i almost dehydrated there), rip out your stock carpets, dont floor the car when your stuck, and always ALWAYS take pictures. I never got too detailed, just know that when your bogged down in the middle of the forest with no help in sight for 8 hours, no AC working, no food or water, bullfrogs jumping all over your jeep and its just you and your jeep left out in the wild stuck, helpless and clueless, it has life changing effects. Oh, one more thing, did i mention this all happend when i had less then 3000 miles on her? You can imagine what kind of bond Her and i have now. Thanks for reading if you had the time to lol.
good story... I can imagine the sheer lonelyness and eiry quite other than the swamp frogs!
wasn't stuck that bad, hole just happened to be deeper than i thought and it was muddy and slick as hell. My buddy got the worst of it lol. He had water coming inside his tub and covering his peddles and feet
i dont have a pictue... since it was dark. But I decided to try mudding in the dark and rain... got stuck on my skid plate right as I entered a mud hole (was deeper than I thought), couldnt go forward or backwards. I ended up calling my dad to come pull me out. I didnt even have a tow strap on me... Now I have two tow straps in the jeep... winch is on the list
This is exactly what happened to me tonight I had a winch and a tow strap but was about 10 feet short of the nearest tree
Almost happened today when a Lamborghini Gallaugho tried to cut me off. I verbally gave him the option of being my new wheel chock and he waved me through before him." ~ T-Virus
Long story short , A cocky guy with a similar build on a 4runner was talking smack and couldn't get up a 20" tall boulder. Since I had a Jeep that is Superior I decided to go over a 40+" tall boulder. My drivers front went over drivers rear went over then my Rf became wedge nose down on the boulder the yota could not get over . I used my winch which pivoted my rear over to what you see. The only damage was a bruised ego To clarify the yota stayed to the right of my boulder.
