Newer Not BetterThis new '02 V-8 GMC Z71 belongs to Robert Brazier of Elk Grove, California. As you can see, it didn't take long for Robert to have a Worst Stuck submission. It was on a trip to Prairie City when he was going up a hill and ran into a puddle of water. Robert tried turning through the mud but sank deeper after getting high-centered. Fortunately, a Chevy was able to winch him out not long thereafter.

Lakebed SpecialBragging rights are the reason why Mark Dehart's '91 Ranger is pictured stuck. Earlier that day, Mark witnessed an '87 Blazer on 35s break its axle trying to get pulled out. Nevertheless, he figured that he could maneuver his vehicle through without a problem. He made it about three-quarters of the way before sinking. A friend in a Toyota sitting on 38-inch TSLs unsuccessfully tried pulling out before he tucked tail and ran. Finally, admitting defeat, Mark called a wrecking service to come pull him out. Don't worry, Mark. It happens to a lot of guys.

Can You Dig It?According to Chad Sheffield, his '84 Toyota pickup was successfully able to make it to the top of the hill before its 36-inch Super Swampers got buried. Since there was no one readily available to pull him out, it was up to Chad to get himself out. Luckily, he was able to keep himself warm and get his vehicle out by spending the next two hours digging.

Road ConstructionTyler Ray from Galesburg, Michigan, was 'wheeling off-road in a field in an attempt to make a track out of it. After several runs throughout the area, Tyler took a turn a little too sharp and rolled his '87 Isuzu Trooper. Fortunately, Tyler was able to drive home still intact with only his pride hurt after his uncle got the Trooper on all fours with his K-5 Blazer.
