Need to start some investing. Or find some real good hook ups

If you pay for my gas both ways you've got yourself a deal.

Sure, you're both on! But if you don't make it you pay me for the gas + the $1000......each!

But believe me, that's not all it would take. Wider tires definitely would have helped as would more right foot but that loon **** is 6" under the grass everywhere you can see in that last picture. It looks like stable ground right beside his rig but it's the same goop hiding under that grass. Momentum gradually slows and you eventually break through and sink, all while trying to plow through the grass with your diff. If there was some substance to the muck it would help you with traction enough to keep going but it's like watery pudding.

I'll try and dig up some videos of a bunch of guys up here that run big block, nitrous powered rigs on 44" tires.....they don't fare much better some times.....but it sure is entertaining when it's not you breaking stuff and walking out of the bush!

Hey thanks for all the help guys. In the end I went and got a high jack, a chainsaw, a bunch of plywood and 2x6s, shovels, a crew of buddies and then got in touch with this guy from the Jeep club and he pulled me out in 5 minutes. Lesson of the day? I need bigger tires and more horsepower. Be more cautious... nah....

Good to hear it's out because my next suggestion would have involved explosives!!!!

I don't even want the 1,000. Just a free trip to Canada.
