I got STUCK last night!!!

So last night me and some buddies went out to the mud hole. My buddy got his F 150 stuck, so i hook up and go to snatch him, and I get stuck! A Cummins, A CUMMINS pulled me out, then I pulled my buddy out. I felt so ashamed, lol. I don't want this to happen again! I don't know too much about gearing, and power and what not. So what can I do to make my truck an off road god! So far i'm lifted about 7 inches, with 37" Super Swampers, exhaust, intake, gauges, and my 6 position TW on the way. Now I think gearing and stuff can help in the mud and off road. Any suggestions? Don't worry I redemmed myself and later pulled the Cummin's out, haha. But, a stroker should never be getting pulled out, we should be doing the pulling! Help me not get stuck guys!

Sorry for the long post.

I PROMISE TO GET SOME PICS SOON GUYS, I'M AT WORK NOW.

Lockers? Should I go with different tires?

i would stay with the same tire and put a powerlock the rear and front. that way you stilll got all four rolling but when you on the road you can turn without the locked wanting to grab
