I've played around in the snow/rain a little bit in my truck before but was always fearful of getting stuck since it's RWD with little power (2.5L 4 cyl). I got 235/75/15s BFG all terrains recently, huge upgrade from my 225/65/14s i was running prior.
Went into an abandonned nieghborhood by my house, found an awesome baseball field. It just finished snowing here like 2 days ago, it's all melted so the fields are perfect mix of water and mud and grass. Tore this field up like it was nobody's business.
Ended up letting my buddy drive, he ended up tearing us a pretty good rut doin reverse donuts, now this was an old nieghborhood bought out by the airport so it's technically Federal Police jurisdiction. We tried to McGuyver it out using sticks and bricks and whatever else we could find lying around to no avil.
Meanwhile a police helicopter was circling above periodically, I figured it was only a matter of time until cop cars showed up. Eventually, I called my dad down, we just pushed the back real hard to get it out, got soaked in mud.
Then when we were leaving he got his new Silverado stuck in the mud, which my Ranger is his old truck. I think the lesson of the story is that my dad needs to quit buying 2wd trucks!. Anyways, a few pics, this was about half way through the day so it's way muddier now.
Long story but feel free to post your first mudding experience or etc. All I know is I'm glad I got outta there before federal police showed up!
