Default Took my ranger "offroading" got stuck

So as a joke my friend and i decided to drive my ranger into his backyard and didnt realize there was only one way out, the way i came in which is a steeep hill on the side of his house. low and behold my 2wd ranger couldnt even move at the swampiness at the bottom of the hill

i truly didnt think i was making it out, thinking of my ranger as a lawn ornament:

But my friend showed up with his turbo diesel cummins and we got out of there just fine!

X2. My 2wd on BFG's and limited slip woulda walked right up. Little weight in the bed might have helped as well.

I believe you quote it, copy the quote, then when you edit your sig paste it in there.

4wd will get you stuck further away from the road. My 1wd ranger has been in situations that any truck could get stuck, 4wd or not. It is all dependant on momentum/ throttle control/tires etc. Haven't been in a situation where I've had to be towed out, but then again its not a rock crawler and I know that. So knowing your limits is another big part. But there are times 4wd would be nice

A real truck is 4x4 if you want to take the cheap way out and save on gas buy a car.
