So there were branches on each side of the Jeep besides the driver side. I cut them all and I still was unable to get out. I then noticed my leaf springs were resting on a big branch. I finally cut that but I couldn't get traction still. That's when I was winched from behind. Now how I got there in the first place, I started sliding sideways down because I couldn't get traction very well.

So, did you try to reverse out of the 'epic' situation?

Jus' sayin'...

You "started sliding sideways", toward the cliff? This should be a novella.

Is this serious? Do you have any seat belts in that?

It's alright dude, don't feel bad. First time I drove my YJ I got stuck in an icy pothole on a dirt road.

First time I went wheeling I went alone and I lasted 15mins then sank bumper deep in mud.
On 29'' Street tires although I confused my dad and a local guy who tried to pull me out though. My dad's JK made in 10ft offroad before sinking and a local guy on 33's made it halfway to my heep before sinking too.


After 3 hours with a strap/bottle jack + putting rocks under tires.


Got out another 5hrs later

Clearly this is just a simple case of inexperience and not utilizing the buddy system dashed with fear of the cliff and a Jeep lacking adequate setup.

Glad you were able to retrieve your Jeep and that no one was hurt. I am certain you have learned from this experience.

Thank you for stepping up and shining some light on this stupid yj vs every other jeep rivalry. Why can't we all just take some pride in the fact that they're all wranglers? Should we vote in each other's contests? Yes! Should we make snappy remarks as to whose is better? No.

No need to provide thanks if it is laced with sarcasm.
It must be the only reason I have it on good authority

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I think no matter what model CJ/YJ/TJ/JK in this scenario with near identical setups and the same driver, the results would have been the same. High tire pressure, lack of tire tread, slippery wet surface, open diffs, pucker factor of the cliff just beyond the bushes.


Myself personally I don't think any one model is better than another, some trim levels may be more capable off the lot, but driver experience will always be a factor. The thing I most like about Jeeps is the varying levels of modifications that are applied to each individuals Jeep for their need, and off-roading experience. Every model has its pros/cons.

Bone,
I was being sincere in thanking you because I know you aren't the type to stoop to that level. My rant wasn't really well written but I should have started a new paragraph to address the others who think one is better than the other.

My apologies for the miscommunication on MY part.
