Default got stuck at a mudbog...

went to the mud bog in lakeland FL yesterday..long story short i got stuck and now my truck has a bad misfire and i need new pullies...




and another forum member came out and i warned him that the pond was deep...he got lucky and kept the passenger side on the higher side..if he was 4 feet to the left his truck would have had water up to the roof..

Yeah yeah 4 feet to the left would've been bad but 3 feet to the right I may have been closer to making it haha... Oh well it was fun and the floor is dry now lol

Florida never ends up with good mud holes. It's always puddle jumping. There's too much lime rock here to allow the water to sink in to the ground.

That may be true..but it still doesnt justify the risk of hydrolocking your engine..
