    It was kinda dull inside it, running like 3500-4000 RPM and going about 1mph. But it didn't get stuck in the field.

    Now the weekend before that, I got it stuck 3 times (locked front and rear with 37" Boggers). I attempted driving out back, on a road that goes through the trees back to where I have stuff stored. I got it stuck a total of 3 times. For some reason the snow was deeper back there cause my front 37" tires were under the snow level, my winch and bumper was under snow, and I had to push a little snow with my door to get out. As I waded through to get to a winch point each time, the snow varied from above my knees to about waist level at a few areas.

    In the field it was pretty consistant though.

    A friend's K5 on 35" Boggers got stuck before we even had the cameras going, and he broke both a front hub, then rear end spider gears. It's still sitting in the same spot as I type this.

    Another friend's truck on 44" Ground Hawgs welded in the rear and 17" of lift had to go back and forth to break a trail on the flat unplowed area, and finally he had enough other little mechanical issues he had to quit for the day.
