Ranger getting dirty

Went out to my friends property this past weekend and ended up getting stuck a few times.

Went to cross a creek, front end started to sink fast so I backed out...or until I dug myself down to the frame.



30 minutes later with 3 guys digging, a Chevy had to pull me out.

Day 2, loaded a quad in the back which was a tight fit.



Then went to try to get through a mud pit...and got about 1/2 of the way through when the little 4 cylinder stalled and wouldn't fire back up. Come to find out the CPS died.

Tried to cross it? you were going to climb the 5 foot bank on the other side?

Looks like a good time, but it's not a good idea to hook a strap onto your hitch ball like that!

The creek curves to the right, which is where I would have went and drove out. No way I would climb that wall haha.

That's the way I see it, I paid $500 for this truck, so much fun.

I had it wrapped around the bumper, I am going to get some hooks to attached to the frame for next time.

Forgot to mention that I have a 4" Skyjacker lift kit going in two weeks, getting a push bumper mounted up front while I am at it. Come summer time it is getting a cammed 302 swap.

Looks like fun. I'm surprised your bumper is still attached to the truck after pulling on it like that.

So am I. We were yanking it out of the creek and the bumper didn't budge.

I was just kidding around man, I know there are things in life that prevent you from doing things. This isn't my daily, but I go to school full time and work on weekends so I don't have a lot of time to fix it nor afford the parts.

When pulling with any sort of strap, always lay a towel or jacket on the lead so that incase it snaps, it doesnt hurt or worse, kill anyone.

Other than that, nice little truck you stole for $500

Yeah you guys are kind of far from me, or at least far for me to drive out and hit up trails with anyone. Don't really want to be to far from home and break something.
