    it had been raining pretty hard that day, so my friend who owns that ranger asked if wanted to go drive around in the mud...he took a turn too hard and slid out, got stuck in that little ditch. :p he would try to reverse out, but his back wheels were diggin in the street (as you can see)

    after a while a ranger (person) came by in another ford ranger and tried to pull us out. he slid around too. it took about another half an hour before this monster F-250 came around and pulled us out in reverse. (it would have been a sweeter story if it ended up being a taco :D)

    Yeah a 2wd Taco would have gotten stuck there too. I had a 2003 Ranger before my Taco and it was an alright truck except the whole breaking down all the time part. I took my Ranger through all kinds off deep muck and with an open front diff and a weak LS in the back I only managed to get it stuck once in the 4 years I wheeled it.

    My friend has an 03 ranger 4wd and it actually does quite well. It used to be his daily driver, but then he got a new truck for that, and "the dange" is now his off roading rig. Because of that fact he will pretty much go through any trail that we find as he isn't afraid of breaking anything. Been pleasantly surprised at what it has gone through a few times. Other times, I have to go in with my truck to get him, and I always hate doing that. If he got his truck stuck, that means it is a challenging area, and the stock Dunflops barely have traction on dry pavement. We have yet to get to the point where every vehicle is stuck though, so I'm just going to keep my fingers crossed on that...

    If you haven't gotten all the trucks stuck, you're not trying hard enough!
