Bald mud terrains are worse then anything on any surface


And you all need some 4wd.. what was your buddy doing thinking he coudl go out in that mud.. with stepbars and stock looking tires nonetheless.. oof



That mud looks nasty by the way... just wait till you see what our clay is like out here *shudders* Its worse then any mud you can get.. its hilly with clay everywhere, gets soft.. and there is no traction no matter the tires you use sadly :-( All you can do is go wide and go fast so you dont get bogged down

Just put it in 4wd and you would probably get out.

lol Stuck like 10 feet off the road. I got stuck 1 foot off the road with 4wd so I know how it feels

How is the Colorado stuck? Like it doesn't look sunk or anything at all. Ummm

Dont use a small chain like that then or strap, whatever it is..

Get a proper 20ft or 30ft 3" strap for doing that



EDIT:
Oh, Shane.. dont you freakin hate counting down days to a paycheck when youll order new toys? heh

Colorados are spring under and very low-to-the-ground trucks, even in 4WD.

Yeah, the AT's and street tires don't work for mudding. It was an adventure anyway, right? And it makes a good story, lol.
