Just flag some guy down with a truck and pay him to pull you out.

Neither, I don't drink.

Get a shovel if you can't find someone to pull you out or call a wrecker.

just wait for the snow to melt, than you wont have to tell people you were stuck cause you will be able to drive out under your own power, you just had your truck parked there for awhile......

just because he has 4wd doesn't mean he cant get stuck dumb ***.. if your truck saw more than pavement you would know that!



i would call everyone you know and see if they know anyone with a truck... or try and go up and ask someone you see with a truck. i would say calling a wrecker should be your last choice... its gonna cost you a pretty penny

call the police like everyone else and then act surprised when you get a ticket for failure to control

yea they could be better on light snow, they absolutely suck on ice.. but what doesn't?

but when you get into 2-3' snow drifts then running MTs is where its at..

Ok. Cause I heard somewhere that because of the deeper treads the snow gets stuck easier in them and therefore gets bad traction. I guess they were wrong.

i like wheeling with M/Ts light, wet, icey, deep, slushy you name it I like M/Ts over any other tire. Not sure why but I like them, you start to get stuck just hammer on it and they dig your way out.

I can get myself stuck in an instant but whats the fun in that, driving in the snow is all about throttle and steering. I just drove in the ditch in 2.5" of snow for over a half mile, never had any issue. its all on how you drive.

hope someone comes and helps ya!
