Well I took the jeep out in the woods behind my house this saturday. I wheeled around for about 90 minutes and came up to this ravine I wanted to cross. I went thru it the first time perfectly, but the second time I took the turn too wide and the bumper got hung up on a tree and buried the tires in the slickest mud I've ever been in. I made a 10 point turn in 2 feet of mud and tried going up the slick hill I slid down. I got up about 10 feet and couldn't go any further. With the help of my other truck (mazda) and a shovel I got it out but it took nearly 2.5 hours! Now the pics don't do it justice because there's nothing there to reference the size of the marks or the depth of the ravine.
The ravine was about 20 feet down with about 45-60 degree inclines for exits and thick woods. My jeep is basically stock with 31" worn out A/T's on them and a slipping clutch. I will have to admit this jeep is awesome in stock trim compared to my mazda.
Anyways, here are the pics and one video of the carnage!

This is the top of the hill look to the right of the jeep there is about an 18 foot drop to the ravine floor.
Here is the drop I was just reffering to with the "dark" mud at the bottom.
Here is the jeep on the way down the 2nd time...
And this is it stuck, about 2 minutes later! LOL
