    I was just down in NC visiting my girl and we decided to go driving around the Croatan Forest. I wasnt trying to go in any deep mud since im new to mudding/offroading, i was by myself and im running the stock bfg rugged trails and i dont trust them. I left the main road and starting driving down a logging trail that wasnt gated off and as i was going around a deep rut i sunk right down into some nasty eastern NC mud. I got stuck almost instantly and was just spinning tires and going nowhere. After a few minutes of trying to get out i put the rear locker on and went back and forth from reverse to drive a few times and i was out. it was a little nerve racking at first since there was no one around to pull me out and no cell phone service. i didnt get any pics of me stuck but i took some after that came out nice. i think im gonna get some better tires...

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    The rear locker is a lifesaver.

    I was out in a construction zone in a rainstorm. Stock BFG Rugged Trails.

    Lots of mud. Took a turn off the "main" road at the site and lost momentum. Got stuck.

    I was stuck for damn near ten minutes, rocking back and forth, getting the RPMs up there.

    With the locker engaged I finally got out.

    I too was nervous since there was no one else around.

    Really made me wish I had a 4x4. This is in a PreRunner.
