Default Getting stuck sucks

got stuck 200 feet from the road or so and i shoveled from 10pm to 7 in the morning! my truck just seemed to get more and more buried. i lowered the tires and dug under the tires and a way out and had plywood. my truck was done there was no gettin out unless i got pulled and finally i got pulled out through a bush so i got some nice pin striping now lol if my phone had a better flash i woulda took pics of it all

his sig says '08 Ford ranger 2.3L

If that truck in his avatar was 2wd, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it got stuck. 2wd, a lightweight truck, and those tires would be a bad combination for snow.

Default his avatar

from the looks of it i would bet that his avatar is the Camburg ranger they just built, last year i think, if i remember correctly, that same picture was posted on the Camburg engineering website, under builds. Am I right, Ec_dago?

LOL I guess I missed that.
Also, as far as I know, there's no snow in Yuma.

Yeah I thought it was his until I saw some of the above posts.
I was just saying that it doesn't seem like it would do too well in the white stuff....

eh... not to worry, all of us who offroad with 2wd have been stuck. my worst stuck was with the contitracs on lol. new tires that are made for offroad make a world of difference. next time you decide to go out on sand, air down to really low, like 10 or 8 psi, shouldnt have a problem then...even with contitracs on lol

also, what type of jack did you use? the factory one? get a high lift or a floor jack, that'll make your life a whole lot easier when you do get stuck

Ever consider using your actual truck for your avatar?

Those stock tires are worthless in snow ice sand anything but dry pavement
