Dear 4-Wheel & Off-Road,
I spotted an empty grain train and thought I'd see what the heck Ole Blue could do. I started to snatch and pull over a few cars before being convinced that my 160hp Mazda B4000 was one boss tree stump-pullin' rig. (Ed.: Yeah, right.)

Dear 4-Wheel & Off-Road,
I was attempting to free a buddy's rig when I found a really nasty spot on what appeared to be dry ground. The price of that winch doesn't look so bad now.

Dear 4-Wheel & Off-Road,
My postal Jeep began digging its 36-inch Swampers into this slop. After breaking the tow strap, ripping off my front bumper, tearing a tow hook off the framerail, and getting a parking violation from the cops, I finally called AAA to send out two tow trucks.
