last evening's mud fun in jax

So last night when all the rain came through, I figured it'd be fun to see what kind of water has accumulated. Went to a place I know can fill up with water and we found the deep part. Having just installed my snorkel I was feeling good about the depth of any water we came across, didn't account for the really deep rut that was on the bottom about 60% of the way to the other end. Any ways I got hungup real bad, buddy with his Jku couldn't pull me out. I couldn't winch myself forward bc of this rut blocking my from axle. I put the winch through all kinds of stress, it actually ended pulling the Jku closer to me by about 3ft.

Well I finally got out when we got a Jku Rubicon on 37's with a supercharger on it to come out. He just hooked up my tow strap and pulled me right out. Will have some videos up soon.

At the end you see me just plop right down into the rut.


Needed a running start, did that after and his tires which are the narrow 32's I have just dug a hole in the mud. He almost got stuck himself.

Got the running start here, didn't make a difference. Come to find out the axle was completely blocked by this rut. Need some much much bigger tires.

Supercharged Rubicon on 37's pulled me right out. When he got there I had been stuck for a while and was def ready to be unstuck, drain out the jeep, and stop the slow creep of mud inside.


That's what his rig looks like, freaking huge!


Pretty sweet water line I picked up


collected some mud, winch did its best to pull me through solid muddy earth, just wasn't meant to be lol.
