Dont feel bad man, 2nd week of having this Jeep, both right tires were on mostly dry ground. Stupid open diffs had to go.
Things have improved greatly since then

Here's one of my favorites - Almost flipped the turtle on its lid
Was backing up to try a different line and the drivers front dropped in a huge hole and wedged the front tire up against a rock. A winch line on the back passenger corner brought me back down.

|adkjoe||Unfortunately if you weren't around during the actual happening you can't read the thread it has been deleted. Long story short he took the jeep for an accidental swim and it was never seen again...The great boat launch mishap.|

Pm a mod and they will help you out.
Reminds me of Chadwick without the water.

Time for an SYE and a Belly up!
And maybe some bigger tires!

|Duckquackers||3 piece shovels save your arse and good to have. I keep a SOG tomahawk and a deployment shovel in The Gimpster at all times. Great post and good times my friends.|

I've really got to applaud the OP (now known as Mr Turtle), you are a great sport about getting stuck like that. I rather enjoyed this thread, thanks for the entertainment.
Entrenching shovels are great!

Reminds me of when I was a kid - my "uncle" (close family friend, very distant relation) had a Dodge Power Wagon - he loved to brag that it COULDN'T get stuck. Yeah, and the Titanic was unsinkable, right? Well, way down deep in our pasture, there was a creek crossing that he kept tore to hell and back proving he couldn't get stuck...and then came the floods. We had to go check the fence at the creek crossings in the back 40, so he piled me in there and we took off. He knew he'd need speed to make it through the approach to the creek, and my head hit the ceiling, then the windshield (what were seatbelts in the 80's?) since we had come to a COMPLETE stop. All four wheels spinning in the air because he was bottomed out on the skid, looking just like that turtle in the pic. Lucky for him he had a shovel and beer, because he got to sit in the shade and watch as I dug the sand and mud out from under the truck :|
Just goes to prove - no tires, lockers, or anything will help when those tires can't bite
