Default Got stuck

Went for a ride and it started raining. I'm on bald 235s with 31/2" lift. Yeah I know I need tires n lockers but the next thing I need to do is a SYE. Anyway, tried to make it up a hill and slid in the ditch that got deeper back down the hill. Couldn't go forward and had to go back which got me all the way in the ditch and high centered. Called a friend who came on a 4 wheeler with a winch. After digging the pumpkins out we were able to get it to move and finally get the backend up but the front wouldn't come out. 3 hrs later we got it out. Here are some pics that were taken after getting the backend out. Oh, and this little adventure was with my 88 yr old Dad and my daughter who loves jeepin.

Man, looks like the old logging trails we have in West Virginia. Glad you got out. That clay can be nasty.

Yeah, I usually forget about the "easy" 4-wheeling trips.

But 15 years later, I still remember vividly when I sunk my Dad's ZJ to the doors in mud and had to have my friend's dad bail us out with his F250

Good memories...

Great story, thanks for sharing!

I haven't gotten my rig stuck like that yet but we don't have any mud/clay like that here either.

After all unstuck and everybody safe then you can look back and have a great story to remember and being with family will make for a good story! As stated the trips with family or getting stuck or some kind of trouble always get remembered before the nothing happened trips
