Stuck and need major help!!!

I went trailing a few days ago in Kent, near the land o lakes factory where I went I've been through dozens of times. I failed to take into consideration that it rained two days prior and my Wrangler is burried in clay..its bottomed out on the frame and skid plate. A friend and I have dug around it and rerouted the water going into it trying to get the water to lower to dry the clay. My friend cant get his truck where i am cause his tranny slips in second and wont be able to make it up the hill to get to me. We bought 200 ft of 10,000lb tow straps and tried to pull it off the ruts from across the river. Anyone with a winch that could help would be GREATLY appreciated.

I'm in CO, but you're probably gonna be dealing with a lot of suction with the clay and mud. Any farms in the area? See if a farmer can use a tractor and loader to LIFT first then pull you out. You have to break the suction before you pull otherwise you risk leaving an axle in the mud. Years of farming in WI and dealing with Red & Blue clay taught me this...
Good luck!

That's part of the reason we dug the trenches was so the clay could dry. And there's no way a tractor could get down there..you need a 4wd rig to get up there to get that close.

Now this is how to introduce yourself.
If I wasn't so far away I would give you a hand. Good luck

I see a winch in your future.......
you need a hi lift jack or a bumper jack from an 80's style car.

If you have that many straps call a tow truck and have them pull you out.

Your going to need to break the suction like the others said and lift your jeep up with a jack. Keep packing wood or something under the tires and lifting until you get it somewhat level, then get someone to pull you out. If you cant get someone with a winch get some chain and a come along, it will take longer but you will eventually get out. Good luck.

Lay down a few behind each wheel, they will kick them out but you will have traction and should be able to move if you dug out you skids and frame. The key is to release the suction and get your jeep moving. I prefer the sections of rolled roofing my self. That way you get one big mat

Did you try people power yet? Give all of your buddies a call, and hook that rope up you bought. Get in the jeep and rock it while they pull. Next best thing to a winch right?

Or else get one of these:

I have a gent coming to winch me out tomorrow morning. I don't want him getting his Wrangler on the off chance he gets stuck somehow. My question is can he use his winch with my tow straps to pull me out from across the river? He has an 8500 lb winch and my straps have a 10000 lb snapping point.

Use snatch blocks and he doubles his winching capacity and can pull from any direction...stay away from chains.

It's no so much weight I'm worried about, I need the tow straps for the distance of roughly 200 feet.it should be safe right?

Just make sure you weigh the cable down so if it does break it just drops....
