My buddies talked me into seeing how sweet my '99 Toyota was in the mud. It did OK until I got cocky and stuck it in 2WD. My buddy broke his rear driveshaft trying to pull me out.

Some friends and I were out rockcrawling at Fordyce Trail near Truckee, California, when I got a little too much wheelhop and it almost sent me over backwards. It would have been bad if my spare tire hadn't stopped me....

Josh was trying out his four-wheel-drive skills at Camp Lejuene right before he was sent to Iraq. Part of becoming a good wheeler is experiencing issues that teach you when to say when.

We were in deep snow, my friend was driving my dualie, and I was driving my 'Burb, both pulling trailers. Going into a turn that a Dodge in front of us couldn't make, we ended up crashing into each other while trying to stop (both my vehicles!). We had the mess cleaned up in two hours before any emergency help arrived.
