HELP! I'm stuck! Literally!

My gf and I went wheeling in the TJ yesterday and got it stuck in a hole, high center, in Spring Hill, TN (south of Franklin, TN). EVERYONE I know is out of town, or working. We have been stuck here for a day now. If you know anyone who can help us out, it would be a simple pull...Just need 4WD to get past one slick spot. Yes this is for real! We are in the mud right now, and cant get out. Need some help if you can!

I would help if I could. Are you close to a road at all? You might be able to wave a truck (or another jeep) down.

Thats the even worse thing...we can see the interstate about 50 yards from us, and tons of traffic zipping by. There are usually a lot of off-roaders on this trail, but we havent seen anyone at all.

Have you tried to dig your self out, put wood under the tires, or get 5 friends and a tow strap and have them pull on your jeep while you try to rock it out(it works, ask me), also are you allowed to be there?

Sounds like you're going to get dirty. Do you have a Hi-Lift jack or any kind of recovery stuff? I have stacked rocks and logs under the tires to get traction.

Make sure you let people know if this is a legal wheeling area, dont wanna get someone else into trouble for helping. Only reason i ask is because you say you can see the highway, just usually ends up being some type of power line service road or something. Hopefully thats not the case and you can get out soon ...

Holy ****! I forgot about this being on here! YES we were really stuck, YES we got really dirty, and YES we finally had a friend of a friend pull us out. This thread is cool for the memories!
