This past winter I was bustin drifts on an unplowed frontage road, goin about 35-40 and need to merge back onto the highway because of a dead end coming up. I waited until I was closer to the orange barracades, assuming their would be an approach their. Nope all their was a ditch and a sudden stop, along with some cussing. The next day they plowed the frontage road and the approach, and I missed it by about 10-15 feet. Lesson learned never assume theirs an approach.
A few years earlier when the jeep was a dd for my wife. She drove it off an approach into a very steep ditch, their it sat on two wheels stuck. It was right outside of my work, and had the boss pull the jeep out with the wrecker. Lessons learned were never let the boss pull you out, he pulled me out SIDEWAYS. Luckly their was no major damage done.
ill put a pic up later, but i consider this bad because well....it was such an easy spot.
i was out on run, and theres one spot where the trail becomes a small rock field. small meaning about half the size of 31" tires.
very easy spot typically, as long as your in low gear. i got stuck right in the middle of it.
about 10 minutes later of trying to get out, we finally realize my front wheels are not getting power. turns out with 31" tires, this spots impossible with 2wd.
after being pulled up the trail, get to another spot with a fairly large rock climb. i wouldnt have made it so i take the "bypass"
turns out the bypass was all soft dirt, and i get stuck there too. eventually ended up stuck in such a way, i can not be pulled out in typical fashion. a snatch block was required, and my passenger door met a tree, twice.
with 4x4 these two spots are a cake walk.
