    video #1 is me and another truck trying to pull out a stuck blazer, then the rope brakes, and comes flying into my tailgate denting it pretty good, flying over my top, and wraping back under the trucks rear axle, talk about force!
    Video1

    Video 2 is me playing in the mud a little bit, then loosing my momentum, getting stuck, and for the next 2 hours trying everything possible to get out... lol I HATE MUD, but enjoy my misfortune
    Video #2

    YUP, a stuck truck fest, glad i don't do the mud crap, that would get really old really fast with all those stuck trucks.

    Glad you didn't ruin it with music though, i personally like to hear the trucks do their thing.

    A couple of things,

    That last tan pickup that helped you get out. Was he hooked to the hitch ball? The video wasn't too clear so I can't tell for sure. But if you think thatthe rope made a big dent your tailgate? Imagine what a steel ball would do to you. /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif FYI

    Second is the last time I was stuck like that, the thing that worked the best was to have a truck constantly pulling while another one made jerks, this way the stuck truck never gets a chance to settle back down into the same suction and you can make it out easier. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I need to get out there again with you guys. It's been a while since i have been there. I miss it. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I'd just like to bring up an interesting quote I heard the other day "No way I'm not going in the mud today" now I can't remeber who said it but I know I heard it somewhere. Just giving you a hard time Brandon /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I'll tell you what I'll give it my all next time to be the person who gets stuck good and you can stand on the side and watch. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    That's a cool video. You were dug in deeper than an Alabama tic. What'd it take 3 or 4 trucks. I got stuck in sand once and it took 3 trucks at a long distance just like that.

    took 3 trucks to get me out,
    and esteban, that "tan" truck was actually green, and no it wasnt a ball, it was the clapmy kind of connecter, the kind i think big rigs use for the multiple trailers, i dont know the name of it though.

    In the first video, what kind of strap/straps did you use, because that truck truck looked like it was way out there.

    The second video, I think that is apart of being a mudder. The thrill of, "My truck is buried, its never comin out" and then the moment of relief and joy when your rig is out. You live for that moment, or when you make it through where the other guy got stuck.

    That is why man created Suburbans, to yank da strap! /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif----^---- /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
    Seemed like that one truck had trouble pulling the strap itself hooked to your rig, and then the other trucks helped pull you out.

    good video /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif That was a fun day ready to do it again? Man I didn't do all that much mud that day but sure took me an hour and a half to get my sub some what clean again. The thing about that mud it's sandy mud with rocks and dryes up like concrete and it's very hard to wash out. I was there a couple of months ago after it rained and was a nightmere the mud pit was twice the size that day everybody left and right was getting stuck. so don't fell bad.

    Glad to hear it was a pintle and not the ball. I've heard too many horror stories about those balls flying threw the air.

    I usually drive threw the river a few times before I leave to get some mud off but it's always a few hour ordeal to get all the mud off. Just like Brandon said. I just leave it on now. Unless I have to work on it. I hate mud falling in my face when i am under the truck /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
