So I went out to Mt. Morris to my buddies property to wheel.

Nothing much. Nice track for the quads and the dirt bikes, a little water hole.

There was this one spot that they nick named the ditch line. I found out why. Looks are deceiving.

So a chain, a winch and a snatch strap later it finally took 2 Jeeps, my 1 Ton Doge Mega Cab Dually and my 9500ti winch to get me out.

Don and Eli gave it their best shot. Don broke a chain, and Eli lost his winch. Finally Jeff, Eric, and my wife pulled me out.

Thanks Jeff & Eric from 2 Track Minds Offroad and to Don for having us out to his property.

Here are some pictures of the adventure. Video is coming tomorrow.

Wow, you had it buried . . . I agree with it looks like you could just walk through it.

hey where did you get the cage work done?
a lil offtopic...

anyways thats a damn good stuck...

Actually the property we were on is the guy who built the cage. He used to work with Jeff and Eric over at 2 Track minds Offroad when it was called The Jeep Outfitters.

If you want a cage call 'em up (810) 659-1300 or check out their website at 2tmo.com

I am sure they can hook you up with something.

Thanks on the stuck. Did you see what I found after I washed it? Go here and check it out

Thanks for looking,

We tried pulling it out backwards. Seems like I am repeating my self, we broke a chain and a blew a winch on a buddies jeep.

The problem was we were dragging a wall of muck behind the front axle so it was stopping us from getting out.

We pulled from the front but after breaking a strap, we hooked up my 9500ti to my 1 ton dodge dually, and then hooked up 2 other jeeps after the tractor lost a cluutch.

You had to be there I guess to see what really happened and why it happened the way it did.

I will definitely let you know, after I fix the axle shafts.

I want to challenge the jeep.

Thanks for the invite,
