Even with all the safety sensors and electronic nannies, we still manage to get our rigs in some pretty precarious situations. From flops to wet socks, we've compiled more than three dozen of your best blunders, stucks, and mega whoops! Think you've got a whoops! that can top what you see here? Send a high-res digital photo measuring at least 1600 by 1200 pixels (or 2 megapixels) along with your interesting story to firstname.lastname@example.org. And those of you who still prefer the traditional way to mail, send us your prints and story to Whoops! at 4-Wheel & Off-Road, 6420 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048.

My son and I went out for a little ride and ended up in a hole and a whole lot of work! We dug and spun ourselves out after about an hour.

I picked the wrong line. Again!
My '94 F-150 was yet another victim of the tank trap. The hole was way deeper than I thought, and the ruts were even deeper!

I guess we all experience a whoops! sooner or later.
It's amazing how fast a trail can change in the Great Northwest. I powered through this hole just a few weeks prior with no problems!

Thank goodness my neighbor just got a new tractor!
Getting stuck is all part of it when you're playing around on the sand dunes of Dubai.
