well i was goin to unload a load of coal yesterday and went to do it the same way ive done it every other time, back the trailer under the deck and off load the coal (my coal bin is under my deck) well i guess the little bit of snow and the 1500lbs of coal were a little to much for the jeep, long story short my jeep ended up stuck in my yard, i had to unload the coal to the bin 20' away and call my friend up to pull me out. i wasent stcuk as bad as on the pic untill i tried to drive through the creek and go out through my neighbors yard, thats when i got really stuck

Laughing with you, not at you, buddy!
When I was hauling the first loads of basement coal I must have had a ton in my old GMC, tried to slow down on a hairpin turn, in the rain, on wet leaves. The truck just kept going. I did not steer in the direction of the skid, I cut the wheel right. I was in a lot of traffic and I was embarassed at what was about to happen.
The truck stopped just before the center island. I kept the load lighter the next trips.

Oh Man! You're supposed to be working, not four wheeling!

Sorry it ended up more work than you'd planned on.

Nice in the snow, rain and not very loud at speed.
4WD in the storms we had others were doing 20-25, I felt comfy at 40-45.

Don't feel too bad. My brother was cutting wood today and got his F150 stuck in some "icy mud". He called me to come and jerk him out with the IH 460. I then gave him another lecture about burning coal. :bang:
