I agree. At 31, I've finally started to agree with the not wheeling alone, no drinking, better roll cage, etc. It's so stupid that I had to learn the hard way.

Amen to that. The older I get, the more patient I am to do things as safely and thoroughly as I can.

Roger that. At 21 and in college (about 15 years ago), I finally learned to use a buddy. Got to a water hole and also learned to check the depth of "all water holes", not just the first few. I also learned that the internal combustion engine does not like water thru the air intake. I learned also that pistons will break, and find their way through an engine block. I had to leave it behind for the night until a tow truck could get me out. It was a day of learning. But, it was a good thing I had my buddy to drive us all back home the 45 minute drive. That's all 6 of us in a Jeep, for 45 minutes. Yep, a day of learning.

Here's the pic of it stuck. Realize I took this on a hill so it looks almost level here.

About 15 feet left of the bushes was a cliff that dropped down to the ocean. I chainsawed so many branches behind and underneath the Jeep. Then a winch from behind got me out.

I'm guessing you've lost your way, like many other TJ owners do. This is the "YJ Wrangler Technical Forum". Real Jeeps have leaf spring.

A tj would have had branches thru the coil springs! I hardly doubt a tj in the same spot could have done any better.

I had to pull 2 tjs and one xj out of the snow yesterday. And out of their group of 4 only the YJ wasn't stuck! (they were all stock in 24" of snow) Made me love my winch even more.

As soon as I read this I said to myself "must be a TJ owner" I looked and what do you know

I've been wheeling with a buddy with almost the exact same setup as me his LJ and my YJ, 2" lift and both on 31" MTs only his had lockers front and rear and I had open diffs. I went through a mud hole and had to go back because HE buried it right in the middle.
