saw the wheels back and forth to give the side lugs some real estate to bite on. and dont let up on the throttle. in mud and sand, momentum is your friend

If you're still movin forward you aint stuck yet. Don't let off the throttle until you quit movin. Don't keep spinnin your tires until you're just sitting on the frame either, just makes it harder for your buddy to pull you out.

check the muddy water before you fly thru it. Just because it wasn't bad last time doesn't mean its not rutted like hell now.

Yup. Carrying a high-tech depth finder (aka - a stick) can't hurt.
Overall, I thing you get the message: a whole lotta skinny pedal.

Once forward momentum stops, get off the stupid pedal. If you drive in, you SHOULD be able to back out. :whiteflag

The most important thing to remember is get lots of pics and post them on FSB. :thumbup

Check depth always

hp and momentum necessary

Approach one wide tires equals float across

Approach two skinny tires finds sure footing by digging to the bottom.

Autos and better than sticks for the goo just have a cooler.

Never hit a hole in low range.

That classic i can do that in two wheel drive is not always smart.

Water+engine= hydrolock see point one.

If your buddy just went through it with 44's and you have 31's think about this your smarter than that.


My few thoughts

low range is the way to go if you keep it in high range your going to bog down unless you lock it in 1st and you have some horsepower to keep them spinning to keep your tires clean

Full tank of gas, cause you'll get about a mile a gallon.
Never use a chain for recovery.
Watch for deep ruts so you don't get high centered.
Don't cut the truck off with the tailpipe in the water.
Don't get water in the intake.

And, of course, leave the mud on for a few days so everyone at school can admire it.
