    Was in area where lots of others play,just not on regular trail.Bout 20 rail buggies came through playing in mud also.Makes me lean toward winch instead of front locker.Wasn't stuck to bad till I stood on gas when tried strap.Was fun after over.Post pic later,Got to pull one off video. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gifer in TENN. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You are lucky the rails could pull you out. I tried using my sandrail to pull my buddies 78 K5 on 35s when he got stuck in the mud, and all it did was spin. Then again my rail only weighs 850 lbs with me in it /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Was all in the timing,2 buggies on one strap,one with own.Took couple tries to get together and they were about to give up.Couple of them live close and one was going to come back with truck and winch.Closest tree was 4-500 ft away.Guess I owe couple favors back to someone now. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
