You guys didnt like the pics from the last time I went out. Tonight I get a call, a friend is "hung up" turns out there is 2 trucks buried, I pull one out (ford 90, 36's) and drag him backwards through a deep ass hole for about 100 yards, and the next is an older dodge (1990) 3/4 ton on 35" bfg mt's. the front axle is gone in the mud. We snag and winch on him all night with no luck. Tomorrow we will free him hopefully, anyway here is a pic or two, more will follow tomorrow with daylight. By the way, my truck is black, not brown. Beast, I wish you were here for this one, you'd have loved it.

and

Both axles on the old dodge were buried, I could only see 2 of its tires and they were mostly covered, I winched the front bumper right off his truck trying to get him out. There was no where to pull or snag from, we tried that and that ended up getting me almost stuck. WE were on a cutover in a real low area, very soggy ground.

Update:
Yesterday we had a local custom 4x4 tow truck attempt to pull the old ram out, Its a military 2-1/2 ton frame with a Kodiak front end and a mid 90's chevy stepside bed, it sky's the 44 boggers rear and 44 swampers front. Well......he got buired in the first creek, it was easy for me, but I guess his ESTIMATED 12K weight hurt him. So we went a got a construction worker friend with a full set of heavy equipment keys and "borrowed" a front end loader (cant remember the #) it was a bitch bitch though with about 8' tall rubber tires, it pulled out the Kodiak and then was buried in the 2nd creek crossing. So we had to borrow a D9 Dozer, if anyone is familiar with those, than you know they are LARGE, one guy we were with said it weighed almost 50 tons, after it pulled the front end loader out, we continued down the cutover toward the old dodge, we were all on foot. Except the driver of the D9, ground gave way on the D9 and it tipped dangerously into the creek, The driver (Ken I think) walked it out of the creek and decided he could go no further, the D9 and front end loader were returned. Another bud of ours with a 1 ton Chevy decided to hit the trail from the other side, nobody had tried that yet, and we werent really sure where it came out on the next road, we went in from the front with a snatch strap and the Chevy on 44's was able to free the old dodge, one last swamp crossing with another guy driving the young punks dodge got it out and onto dry soil. The punk has declared he will never go offroad again....haha yeah right.
The ruts were really 4-5 feet deep from the 2 pieces of heavy equipment and cut walking through them was a challenge it was pretty cool, but it got old after the 2nd day.

Hey BGM, my roof wasnt clean, I could taken a shovel to it...lol And if I had anymore wheelspin I would have been red lining her. I stomped it, maybe a supercharger would have helped.
