almost got stuck the other day , my buddy went first luckily . dove through a ice puddle about 2 1/2 feet deep way to slow ended up snapping a valve stem off because of his stupid novelty eight ball covers and had to teach him how to split a tire out in the bust with a bottle jack and a jeep hahah . luckily i carry valve stems .

I had to dig for about 2 hours to get enough room to reach my frame, then the ZJ behind mine pulled me from the front with his wench and that part only took about 10 min. Although it did start snowing as we were finishing so it was nice and cold.

ok but maybe a dumb ? but is the gc behind you has a winch y did you dig for 2 hours. hook the winch to the rear of yours and pull you out. 15 mins and your free to try it again.

I was wondering the same thing. Why pull through the mud?

The Front end was butted against a sheer drop, which caused the back tires to be about 3" off the ground.... We tried pulling from the back at first, all that happened was the ZJ behind me almost got pulled in with me.

ok so use a tree saver or another strap and hook the gc to that so it doesnt move then pull the xj out. seat time and you will learn tricks of recovery.

the nearest tree could be a mile away


nothing wrong with a little digging it reminds you to let your buddy go first .

Remember real friend will wait for you while you get someone to pull you out and will be up till 2 in the morning in the cold installing a lift when you have classes the next morning.

I don't remember who said it on here but its always better to let a jeep of equal or lesser lift to go through an obstacle first.
