Talking I got a call the other night..

So I was just about to sit down and enjoy some amazing baby back ribs that my mother had been preparing all day. That's when the phone rang. I got a call that my friend was burried in a hole out in a place we go muddin every once in awhile. Being that they're were ribs just about to be on the table, it took a lot of convincing to myself to drive the 20 minute or so drive to go get him. He had been stuck out there for a couple hours and wasn't making any progress and it was just starting to get cold, so i got all my stuff together and headed out. I got out there and i found him in a creek full of soft mud. He came down to the main road and hopped in my 94 Jimmy and showed me the way to get to him. He had never been in there and i was haulin on the backroads and he said "Man i wish i could take these bumps and ruts like you" I just smiled to myself and continued to drive. we got to his Jeep (which is a 99 cherokee with a small lift and a bunch of money into it. This kid thinks nothing can come close to his jeep) and it was sure enough sunk to the bumpers in mud. None of us there thought the Jimmy would get it out. But after a few tugs and some digging. 5 minutes later i gave er hell and yanked that jeep right out the hole. Then the 2 kids that were with him rode back with me cuz they didn't want to get stuck again. And the whole reason im posting this is cuz of this quote just before i left "Man i have a whole new respect for that Jimmy, my jeep couldn't of handled most of that stuff you went thru to get here" So i was a very happy kid, and now a member of the "Jeep recovery team"

Sorry no pics boys.. it was dark and i just wanted to get home to my ribs!

Oh Btw.. My Jimmy is a 94 thats all stock except for a shackle lift with crager wheels and somewhat decent tires.

Yea that and a vehicle can only do so much , it has alot to do with the way you drive . My buddy was burried in my swampy corn field with his big chevy (355 race engine standard tranny , 33 inch tires ) and I drove circles around him with my little 94 4 door s10 blazer .Till I blew the transmission dip stick out and got transmission fluid on my headers , instant fire . But it lived to fight another day so all good .I had to pull him out with the tractor , and I still take friends for rides through there. I think I should get a camera just for the Blazer because all the real good stuff happens when I don't have it .

I have a similar story a few kids were stuck behind my house in about 3 feet of snow with their 2 door 4x4 jimmy, I went out got in my 4x4 Canyon drove and right up to them. I hooked a recovery strap to their front tow hook and the other end to my front tow hook, put it in reverse and backed them right out like nothing.

Honestly without a good set of lockers they are both in the same boat. You can have 36' tires and 12' of lift and not make it through a puddle. I've seen my vehicle and a jeep with 33"s do the same in one instance but truth be told they can flex more and more ground clearance. You 4door guys know what I'm talking about
