    i've been on both sides of that equation. plowed into a big puddle to find huge ruts, leaving my axles hung on what remains in the middle. bummer. at least i've pulled more times than i've been pulled.

    but once, i pulled a jeep guy out, and i had to drive through "his" puddle to get into position. he remarked, "you only made it through because you have more power and clearance". i honestly didn't know what to say to that. his tone sounded like he was trying to be rude, but he didn't actually SAY anything rude. it was odd. maybe i should have backed up and shoved the heep back into the muck :haha: .

    You gotta be kiddin' me! Those Jeeps are stuck? C'mon man, that isn't even classified as a puddle. The one Jeep in the ruts I can understand because of his ground clearance, but the two face to face :doah:. They should hide in shame!

    For the Mounds, that's not MUD, that's a puddle. Ha Ha, I'd love to go there. I've seen so many pictures and video's of the Mounds, that MUD is great! Gotta take a vacation and bring the truck up there.

    The Wrangler wasn't stuck too bad but the Cherokee was buried. You can't tell from the pictures but his left front and right rear were at "full stuff" and the left rear and right front were pretty much dangling. The ditch just to his left was muck about two feet deep and he was stuck across it diagonally. The Wrangler may have been able to get out eventually but he was sliding downhill towards the Cherokee every time he tried to move.

    According to them, the Wrangler went through once successfully, then the Cherokee tried to follow and got stuck. And then the Wrangler got stuck trying to go back through so he could pull him out from the back.

    Whatever happened, there were there for two hours before I showed up. :D

    Another guy took some more pictures but he hasn't sent them to me yet. Maybe they'll show it better.

    I was given 'em hell, too. "You damn Jeepers think because you're 'Trail-Rated' that you can go through anything."
    :haha:

    Oh, and I'm quite pleased with the BFG MTs. I spent most of the day in 2WD and they just pulled right along. Up hills, through mud... no worries.

    LOVE THE LOOK OF YOUR RIG. WHAT SIZE LIFT AND TIRES IS THAT?

    Thanx!

    35x12.50-15 BFG MTs and 6" lift, all springs.

    The back might actually be a little more than 6" because the spring perches I fabbed for the rear axle are about 1.5" above the tube.
