Stuck

Right now my truck is stuck in the campus lot. We got 2 feet of snow yesterday and I pulled everyone out. Now I gotta find someone to pull me out (wake up Cody!!!). So I am just sitting here playing on the site till my next class. The worst part is it wasn't stuck when I parked it. I was using my truck as a plow to make parking spaces for ppl. At one point I was almost 30 ft into all the snow and backed out without a problem. The ranger really did great. I wish I had pics but I was driving the truck. AQlthough I know later I will most likely be pulling a 2003 Silerrado out so I will get pics of that if I have to pull it.

I don't mind the cold as long as there is snow, which we get plenty of. I just need to get new tires. My stock RT/s have seen better days. Anyone got a suggestions for a cheep mud tire. I was looking at the Dunlop mud terrains but I am not sure how well they will hold up.

Get some nice A/T tires...they perform in the snow WAYYY better than Mud Tires. I have BFG A/T's 31.5x10.5 got them local for $115 each.


Is that cheap enough...

If I bought the BFG ATs mine would be a lil more expensive since I got a 16 inch rim. I gotta get rid of these tear drops and get a set of Alcoas or something similar in a 15 inch.
