got stuck in sand

yup i hate having 2 wheel drive in sand with an open rear dif. i was doing fine out in the dunes then i go to turn around on a hill and as soon as i start going up the hill i feel my back end starting to sink. i rocked it back and forth then the back end just buried. buried all the way to my rear differential and my rear bumper was just a few inches off the ground. i was also only there for a few hours so i didnt air down either . flame me all you want about not having pics but it was dark and i was more concerned about having someone pull me out. flagged down a guy in a lifted f-250 on 40s (maybe 38s) and he pulled me out like it was nothing. pretty funny because i flagged down the first person i saw and this guy ive seen driving around town back in fresno. and he looks like hes still in high school. very embaressing. yup thats my story for the day. and my first time EVER getting stuck with my mud terrains. never had a problem before.

i disagree with that statement, my muds are way better in the sand than my AT's were. its all in the tire pressure, gotta drop it down to around 10 psi for the sand.
