    So we participated in the Drummond Island event put on by Midwest Offroad Expeditions, which was GREAT! So props to those guy's for putting on a awesome event.

    We decided to go on a night run with a few friends and it was going great... at first. We were following the LeadNav app and we were on track but a section of our path got heavy rain a few days before.

    We ended up almost plowing through a deep hole of muck. Almost. Truck got a little water in the cabin and the bed was half under water where we ended up.

    There will be a full YouTube video of us going under and us getting out with our winch and with the help of our friends. Here is our YouTube to keep an eye out for the video of us making clowns out of ourselves :jester:

    It was bad, the smell was worse!

    Had to go as far as possible to bring the nose up, we were past the deepest part when we got stuck fortunately.

    As long as we were able to drive home, yes! :Big Laugh:

    Haha nice!! So the question is, we’re you glad you had the winch, or did having the winch make you do it?!

    You'll be finding mud and dirt under your truck for a long time. LOL
    Did something similar in one of my Wranglers. Also had a winch.
    Every time it rained or I washed it, for months, there would be little trails of mud running out from under.
    It was still a shitload of fun.
