When I was a kid we had a hired hand stick a tractor to the fenders. It had to be pulled out with a dozer. My dad asked why he drove it in that mudhole? He said, it only looked wet on top...

At least it’s a diesel and you can leave it running with the A/C going while waiting ����

Maybe you should have turned on them big light bars to see where you were going or dry the ground in front of you

Question you running a/t or m/t And what brand? And do square toe boots help in the mud ( or just put a bigger dent when you kick the truck? )
Have you tried some poor boy maxtrax mats under the tires ( cutting some brush )

Youíre not familiar with the newer DPF equipped trucks are you? Idling the newer diesels for long periods of time is harder than on gas vehicles.

No such thing as a big Jeep. And if it’s not heavier than you. It may be stuck too with a tight strap or chain. Good luck.

Man, a samurai with a winch and snatch block and anchor point (with someone who knows what they are doing) can ease that rig out.

Mud dries from the top down. It doesn’t dry from underneath up. If it’s wet on top, it’s wet underneath. The fenders on a tractor set on top of the tires. About 6’ high. How about now?
