haha! I have used that method so many times it honestly makes me feel stupid but genius at the same time! i have gotten myself out of some serious sticky shit.

gotta love what being 125-100 miles from the nearest city and having zero phone reception AND your GF saying we're going to die does to your adrenaline and thinking haha

Several friends or associates say similar. Sadly, I haven't yet had a chance to really explore the area. Only moved to Alabama three months ago, so this state is still new to me. However, all that will change soon enough.

I have done this on many occasions since i have a bad habit of wheeling alone lol
Absolutely worst incident for me was was a trip to a mountain stream with wife, friend, and his really pregnant wife. Had been raining (in Germany) for several days, but never had a problem in that area before. However, this time, lost enough traction to not climb over even a tiny mound. No real problem since a minor shove would easily get us moving again.

His pregnant wife did not know how to drive. My wife got behind the wheel, with the three of us (yes, even the pregnant wife) shoving. My wife hit the accelerator hard and promptly sprayed all three of us with smelly mud. It was a very quiet drive back to town and his wife (no sense of humor) never rode with us again.

If your tires are mud packed, grab a stick and clean out the tread.

Make a roadbed of plant material (branches, small logs, etc. and start by jacking up each tire and placing rocks or wood under the tires so the truck is at the same level as the terrain (not burried below it) and on top of solid matter... then as much new roadbed you can place in front of the tires to get your momentum up and out of the squishy stuff.

If needed (and specially if you can't obtain rocks or wood), deflate the tires to widen the foot print. Just start your drive out above the stuck by raising the tires and filling in the hole below them with anything, including mud, before lowering the jack.

If you don't have a locker or some type of limited slip, you could gently apply the emergency brake and hope to get both rear wheels turning.

Here is something that I just thought of, but have never tried. This would be last ditch type of situation. Instead of carrying sand bags for traction, carry bags of concrete. Then, if you get stuck in a wet/muddy situation, dump the concrete in the hole and wait a while. Might actually work.

I'm not one to trust plywood to hold my truck up in a hole...not about half-assing things, especially when it can land me stranded in the middle of no where...
