got stuck!

Sometime last week Me and a friend went out to some trails and there was a muddy hole....i made it across fine and then my friend went with his bronco and just sank right in because it weighs 6300lbs lol.

you can see my tracks in front of his bronco when i made it across




Friend has me turn around and go pull him out....yeah ok im almost to the other side and BAM my drivers side front tire sank in and then right after my drivers rear tucked almost all the way into the wheel well lol







Called another friend up and he got us out with his GMC Sierra haha

Looks like fun...that Bronco only weighs about 4800lbs though. It might weigh about 6300 with all that mud stuffed into it.

I apologize on behalf of Ford for putting a false number on the door tag.

just an FYI, GVWR doesnt mean thats how much the truck weights, it means thats how much the truck can safely weigh loaded including passengers, gear, fuel ect. my F-150's GVWR is 7200 pounds but the trucks dry curb weight is around 5200

should have had your friend sit in the high corner of your bed so it would lift up the front so you could throw some wood under your front tire
