Wow. Haha

I've had my 95 400 stuck up past the seat in mud and water and I thought that was bad... Damn that's some deep stuff right there

The seat deep mud will get it stuck damn near every time, that's the drawback of a solid rear axle. With 27x10x12 fronts, 27x12x12 rears at 4.5 psi it floats pretty well. It will cross a pond, but swift creeks and the floating becomes a problem. Don't ask... Lol.

Yeah, we got off topic a bit... Not the first time in this thread. But, it looks pretty damn manly being towed on a trailer behind my Jeep...

Lol. Yeah. But I've been through some pretty rough stuff with my solid rear. Independent is too much stuff to break IMO

Didn't keep any today had to go to work. Haha. Jeep wave didn't happen cause I was rushing. Between dad and I we got 4 cats, 2 bass, and probably 15 crappie and 5 perch and a buncha blue Gil. in about 3 hours. Not to bad.

FYI... tougher than you think to smash off..
Nonetheless my TJ is one step closer to manly.. short break then I'll hammer off the other one.. LITERALLY..
I had the same problem last week getting the jugs off. Just used my foot and kicked off the driver side that was rusted on.
