Here's the one time mine was ever stuck. 2 years ago attempting to pull out a Yota that nosedived in the creek. Right side fell off the wet earthen ramp and the diffs were buried in the bank. Took hours of digging and a come-along but we got it out. The Yota had to get pulled out by a wrecker the next day.

I think your friend needs propellers and floaty's for that kind of "trail".

Or they do sell these things called boats and they work much better for that application haha jk

I've been stuck more often than I would like to admit. My Jeep is not the best off-road rig... yet.

All of these are pre-35 MTs and pre-V8

This is the mud hole


This is the Jeep thinking it could make it.






This was me testing out how deep the frozen drainage ditch was.


and getting pulled out by the girlfriend


My front tire found the frozen over hole in the field



Does this count as being stuck?

[QUOTE=1222;9649132]Not sure if this is in the owner’s manual, (too lazy to look – just being honest) but how would you get out of your Jeep if the power went out and you were locked inside? Assuming you have the power windows and locks of course.

buddys blazer, sand is a wonderful thing.. I snapped both front axle yokes, rear drive shaft and "re-arched" my rear springs trying to tug him out with my xj

3 of us on what was supposed to be "frozen" mud/pond... about 2 ft to hard bottom.

same blazer a different time, I actually got him out this time. the other blazer couldnt move him... its a jeep thing

and now is me, the under grass and ruts got me...

high centered, on a section of Dishpan in Big Bear. Winched out of this one That was a fun trip! My first time hitting some real trails.

I've got more suspension and tire now. And a bit more driving experience.

My ZJ got stuck, the left side was really sunken in and before me my buddies 1500 got stuck. And my buddies Z71 and f-150. It took 2 trucks and my jeep to pull the blue one out. The ford that got stuck trying to pull him out was stuck until we got the tractor down there. My ZJ did very well for not being locked up! Sorry about the image size
