Got stuck

Want on a new trail this weekend and there was to side for it, on the left side stock truck could pass easely but on the right side it was all different. I took to winch to get me out of there and about 6 hours of clean up afterward.

The third line is from my winch that didnt work, has a short in between the solenoid and the casing. a locker wouldnt have help, my rear diff came off the ground cause of a big rock in the middle of the mud.

you mean your rear diff hit ground? Time for a lift and larger tires. Oh, and a locker always helps!

Why 2 winches? Were they 5k or 6k winches? I have a couple guys I wheel with that have 6k winches and that is plenty for their Jeeps but it takes 2 of them for my Ranger when I am stuck good. I can say that my 8k smitty has gotten me out of holes that it took 2 5k or 6k winches, so I am happy.
Your truck looks great. I love the snorkel, wheels, tires and front bumper. Swet truck and even better country where you are. Enjoy!

The snorkel is one from a landcruiser, for the winch there where to warn 9 000 pulling on my truck, its not really the mud that was stalling me but a big rock in the middle of the mud that got stock on the rear diff. Here the hole it left in the mud after dragging it for 2 foot in the mud, for the locker ill see i hate my torsen on the road but in the trail it never failled me
