that sucks man. Same thing happened to me last year in my jeep. Was idling down a dry packed granite road an heres a lil mud on the shoulder. So I drove over it. Soon as I hit the patch of mud my passenger tire dropped until my bumper hung up on the ground!

Ended up having a f-150 an a chevy astro van hook onto me an yank me out.

Been driving that road every day for the past 4 years an have never seen anything like it before or since.

i had something similar happen over the winter, just with ice.
it was so bad i could have flipped my truck if i pushed on it.

be careful, the intake is on the passenger side, you might want to pull the airbox and make sure its not full of muck.

Dude I've been there...I was driving and decided to go through what I thought was a little mud hole and turned out to be a 5ft deep underground spring or something. You would never know that it was that deep just by looking at it. Water in the cab and it took a 1ton F350 6 HARD pulls to get me out.

yea... you cant exactly drag the front cross member and rear axle through solid ground lol
but it seems like 32 swampers should have provided plenty of traction

Now that is STUCK!!!! A great story and pics to remind you to ALWAYS look before you step. That "little mud puddle" sure ain't so little after all.

At least you got it out.

I hit it first but quit once I sunk. He kept pushing. Mine was an easy pull from the back. This was a ditch that looked muddy, but not 3' deep.
