nothing wrong with wheeling by yourself, I've been doing it for almost 20 years. Knowing your vehicles and your own capabilities is the key factor oh and a source of communication with a planned recovery method if needed, from looking at the pictures and knowing how black mud works. I would have never touched that with a stock vehicle unless I had another vehicle there with me.

Also if i knew it was only stuck like that not needing a winch and just a good hard yank. i would have went up there for the cost of gas money.

yea see when this happened it was 10:45am and everything was frozen and had frost on top... i came out of the woods in a unexpected spot, it was my first time on the trails i went on n came out at the powerlines. i puled up my location on gps and saw a road on the other side, as i said i tried to cross cause it was frozen... the pics taken were at 3:30pm so you could imagine the sun/heat off the jeep melted everything around... my brother has a stock unlimited and didnt want to risk getting his stuck aswell cause by the time he could help the ground was too soft... definitely a learning experience though mudboy i do agree, i guess i "tested" my capabilities yesterday lol... does anyone have suggestions for all terrain tires i could get on the stock rims, theres not much of anything out there for commanders tires and a lift seem about all without getting custom

lol we all live and learn. Black mud is the result of flowing water, even if it is underground or extremely slow moving. It's swamp mud. It takes a good week of below freezing weather to support the weight of a vehicle. May i suggest a Mud terrain. BFGs mud terrains are quiet and handle on the road rather well. A all terrain tire would not have helped you there. I'd rather have a stock street tire than a traditional all terrain tire in the mud.
Youre wheels should be a 17"x7" 245 65 17s should be able to do next size up like 245 70 17s

How much air pressure were you running? That rear tire looks kinda sketchy in that on shot. Alway got to be careful not to run so low that you could run the tire off the rim. And the previous poster is correct, never ever wheel alone, and if you can, always wheel with someone who has a winch. I have a winch and even I try to never wheel alone.

Reading back, I see mudboys comments and I am not trying to disagree with him. He appears to have way more experience than myself. He brings up very valid points about knowing capabilities, and having good reliable communications. My thoughts are for those of use that don't have years of experience.

You know, no one else has said it, so I can't really resist the temptation to say:

If I had a wench with me, I wouldnt mind being stuck in the mud. wink wink nudge nudge
