Damn Stuck Again!! I think its time for a winch!!

This is what you get for trying to help a friend out haha. It took a 75 ft winch with 2 25 ft ropes connected to a chevy with a big ass dodge pulling the chevy back, to get us out. But it was fun!

Great pics!! It does look like fun. Getting stuck with that many rigs to help out can actually add to the fun!! Still....yeah, time for a winch. ;-)

The trucks didn't go out there. The jeeps floated over most of it and the wagoneer had to have some speed to get through it all. The first 6 inches are fine. Once u break though that top layer your scewed. Nasty mud when I was gettin snatched out the second time the rope snapped and the D ring went about to inches over the roof. Scariest day ever!

I gotta hand it to Olympic. The bumper held up really well. We tried winching me out of with a 12,000 pound winch but that didnt work so snatching with a snatch rope was the only option. I got snatched pretty damn hard and after the 5th snatch i finally came out of the whole. Quality Products. Now I have to clean it

Gotta hand it to Olympic for not including recovery points into their bumper?

Time for MT's. Looks like you are running AT's.
TRXUS MT has awesome off road capability but is as quiet on road as an AT. Great snow and wet traction too.

I thought the same thing. Those treads are packed full.
