It didnt even look like mud

I was toodlin around the woods near where I am staying until the dorms open up and saw that looked like a nice grassy area to turn around in. Turned out to be 100% swamp.

See the grass at the top of that picture? That is what that whole area looked like before I got into it and sank.

What we called to get us out

Nah, it's the tall dude's truck. When it comes to full sized trucks I am a GM person. For mini's nothing beats Ford and Toyota.

That Z71 has 3" of body, 4" of suspension, 38" Mudd Grapplers...and no LSD. He wants another 3" of lift...I told him better diffs will give him a lot more. He was spinning one front and one rear the whole time he was trying to just pull me out. 2wd wouldnt even budge me. The tires are nearing the end of their off road life. He had to pull the explorer the majority of the way back to the road. lmao

See? It just goes to show everybody that you don't need 9,000 inches of lift and 400 inch tires.
