One major difference here though: I ran over the rock by accident. You did this on purpose. LOL

Good point - and to top it all off, I was thinking I was the coolest kid on the block for doing it!

as long as nobody knows you're stuck on it, you are the coolest kid on the block for doing it.

Kinda like a tree falling in the forest.

If you're stuck and no one knows, are you really stuck?

Impossible scenario.

If you are completely stuck, the only way to get out is with someone else's help.

If you get out without someone else's help, you were not stuck to begin with.

I'd have to disagree. I'm finding it mildly entertaining.

As suspenseful as you are making this thread without pics, I would recommend you go to Lowe's and rent the hourly Lowe's truck for $19/hr and load it to the max with dirt and build that mound up to make it more impressive. Heck, throw in a few large landscaping boulders while you're at it. You know you are asking for it but this is all in fun.BTW, welcome to WF !

Just leave it and text a pic to your landlord thanking him for your new awesome parking spot. I'm sure he'll be out directly to move the jeep for you.

Still have 2.4 hours until I get off work.....but I get the feeling it's going to be anticlimactic when you see the pitiful amount of dirt that was able to contain the mighty jeep....

I got stuck in a starbucks parking lot for a bit. Someone removed the sewer grate and I backed the rear passenger tire into it. It shifted the weight of the jeep enough so I had one front tire spinning, and the tire in the pit spinning. (damn open difs!) I sawed the steering wheel while on the gas pretty hard and got it out. Made some smoke, lots of noise, and got some funny looks!

Quick update: I spoke with a jeep enthusiast at work ( he had to sell his for family reasons, mourn for him ) and he is thinking that my 4wd won't engage because it is caught in the dirt. I wasn't in 4wd when I went over the pile ( I don't think ) and he said that dirt might have jammed me from engaging in 4wd. Sound plausible?
