I went muddin' with some buddies, and after pullin' one rig out, I couldn't see very well. I got caught in some ruts and ended up in this hole. It took three trucks to get me out.

All Gooped Up
This K5 got stuck after running out of gas. It took a Ramcharger and another K5 to get it free.

Full Moon Mishap
This is what happened to my '01 F-250 Power Stroke while driving on the beach one night in Corolla, North Carolina. I was too busy looking at the full moon and waves to notice the stump up ahead. Obviously the stump won the battle. I thought the reason I bought an ATV was to keep me driving my daily driver.

Stuck Enough
What can I say? Sometimes 36s just ain't enough. This was a mud bog at a friend's house that got a little dug out. I had to have a 4WD payloader get me out. That's what I get for wheeling with light Jeeps.
