    I sometimes use my truck as scaffolding. I was doing that Saturday to put up some eavestroughing on my house. I lay two planks across the top of the bed and put a ladder on that.

    So I was backing the truck up a slight grade to the house. I was in 4WD high range. It had been raining and the ground was soft. Before I know it, my truck won't move. Try forward and same thing. Low range at this point did not help.

    I was stuck on grass in my backyard! I had to dig out the front of the wheels so I could get the truck free. Here are two pics.

    Crappy all season tires. The good news is that on my non-TRD 4WD V6, ALL wheels were working and digging in. All four wheels dug themselves a grave. I could see rice patties down the holes around the tires!

    So I guess 2 questions, how much rain to get the ground that soft and how hard were you on the gas? :)

    Ground was what you might call super-saturated. Just walking around, my feet were sinking into the ground. If I had my winters on, this probably wouldn't have happened. I won't bother with meatier summer tires. I hardly drive the truck all summer as I am riding the motorcycles all the time - or the Bricklin.

    These are the winter tires I use:

    bet ya coulda rocked it loose by giving it a bit of gas and dropping the clutch a few times. i've seen guys get out of some remarkable predicaments that way. Meatier tires woulda done the trick too.

    Here's the problem: OEM Dunslops. I had something similar happen, I couldn't make it up a little 5 foot ditch to get out onto the road in front of the softball fields because of those tires. My softball buddies haven't let me forget it, either. Since I got the Firestones, I do it all the time now.

    Definitely the dunFLOPS are the cause of this little escapade!
