So I finally decided to take my baby down a real offroading trail. My 2 friends and I went alone in my truck. Needless to say that wasn't a good idea.
We went down this trail about a mile and came to a point where it branched out to 3 trails and then an open field. Keep in mind everything is frozen and there is a few inches of snow on everything also.
I stopped and looked at all three trails and chose the middle one, it looked the least challenging. Turns out I was wrong...
I start going and all of a sudden my truck drops about a foot! So I try to plow threw it. That didn't work I didn't move anywhere. I throw it in reverse, no luck, forward, no movement.
Go out...looked at my truck...realized im ****ed, I was completely bottomed out just spinning in the water.
The ice was broken where my tires are but was still a few inches thick under the middle of my truck.
After a few more attempts to rock it out and completely failing my truck started freaking out. Brakes wouldn't work lights were going off...bunch of issues.
So I called a friend with a sick older v10 ram. He came 30 minutes later looked and me and said I got lucky I bottomed out instead of going further.
He said that it gets even deeper..about 3 feet deep.
Thank god I didn't get any further. So he breaks out the tow strap starts trying to pull me out backwards..we didn't move. He had to start backing up and flooring it to yank my truck out. After the third time I was still stuck and he got stuck.
He aired down and gave it one last try. As he floored it, I floored it in reverse.
Finally I got out! I was freaking out though because my axle was just dragging in the ice. I thought something was going to break and I don't even have 2k miles on my truck hahah.
But anyway I don't think anything broke. Moral of the story...don't offroad alone
