Whoops! Mud Stuck Suck

    Staff Whoops!

    Here’s another Staff Whoops of sorts. This one is from a few years back when one of our more enthusiastic freelancers, Ben Battles, was testing a set of Maxxis Creepy Crawler tires on his CUCV Chevy K30 pickup. Ben was having a good ol’ time in the backwoods of New Hampshire, becoming more and more confident in the abilities of the Maxxis tires to claw the big diesel-powered Chevy pickup out of any situation. Until he hit some (for lack of a better description) truck quicksand. Ben got stuck up to the rockers as the front bumper bulldozed a wall of debris and the rear bumper grabbed a ledge. Some (make that lots) of shoveling and a strap later, Ben was out and free to take more of the awesome photos he is known for.
