Icon7 off roading and stuck pics

so then i went down a few local trails nothing crazy just some old access roads and did fine up until i came to a really rutted up hill. so being stupid i didn't check how deep the ruts were and drove right in. well half way through i got hung up on the rear end so after about 45 minutes of digging and getting more aggravated i flag down a group of teenagers in a jeep grand cherokee and they agree to pull me out.

I disagree... He needs 35's. It's all about low center of gravity, remember?

Good looking truck. Getting stuck like that sucks, especially when you're alone.

Wow, you're real funny.

35's give you ground clearance, silly. Even if you don't have a lift. They may not raise your body about a foot in the air, but they bring up your axles. A lift isn't going to bring up your axles, is it?

By NOT lifting your truck 9 inches to run 35's (which would be about right for a gen 3, the 9 inches part), and maybe doing some fender trimming and/or a smaller lift combined with the fender trimming, you could run 35's, have the same ground clearance, and STILL have a lower center of gravity then say, a 3 inch body lift on 33's. Or, maybe have the same.

But, you didn't think of that before posting, did you?

Oh, looks like you had fun. Makes me want to go work on my Ranger right meow. But it's cold out :(.
