Show us some photos of you stuck somewhere

#1
Most of us don't like to talk about getting stuck but I think it is all part of our sport. I don't mind sharing my mishaps lets see some bogged rigs.

This was in Dwellingup WA when a mate got into some big ruts. He eventually tipped the jeep on it' side. All good we pushed it back over & we carried on





This one is at Telephone lane in Mundijong WA the mud section is only about 1km long but it took us 3 hours to get through it





I'll hunt up some of me being stuck soon.

Cheers

It's never happened, I've never been bogged at all. This photo was simply saving fuel by getting winched through soft bits instead of driving... environment saving measure you know.

(this really isn't bogged, it was my first day out in the hilux. have been bogged properly but have no photos!

A forum member fairly well stuck (note not bogged like the other thread). I think it's been long enough that we can laugh about it now.

sent from the world out there
If that's true, I still have the winching video somewhere.

Respectfully,
Ian.

I didn't know anyone had pics. Good shot.
And vid? Can you hear the bolts breaking on the winch?:(
I have at least 10 photos and 2 videos, haha.. and yes, you can definitely hear the BANG when your mounting bolts let go in the video. You took it like a champ on the day though! I saw some true character from all involved that day though.


Haha go for it. Insurance has been sorted and I have a newer better truck!
Really glad it all worked out for you in the end, mate. That was a pretty rough thing for you to go through, I definitely wasn't going to post the video or any photos until you gave me the official ok.


Truth be know Ian took that shot not me. But yeah it is a good one.
I thought that looked familiar! Haha, at least you're honest, I didn't even know myself :eek:

I will attempt to upload the video to YouTube this arvo and where should I post the link? (Gavo should probably make that call if he wants to) maybe your old ride thread? Or should we take a page from bally and start our own thread? Could be titled; "How a roll-over recovery SHOULD be done". or "Emergency Recoveries: Doing it right" ;)

Respectfully,
Ian.

Ian my old truck thread would be winner I think.

You watch though some champ will find something we did wrong and dangerous and we should have done this and should have done that blah blah.
But until you have 50k worth of truck lying on its side leaking oil into intake from sump I don't care if that person thinks we should have done it differently.
We got it over and drove it to a safe location.
Rant over.

No man ever cut himself bearding!

Great photos Swaggie. Water crossings are the one thing that gets me nervous. So much can go so wrong very quickly. How did the truck pull up? Much water get in?
Waz.

A "my old truck " thread is a great idea. Would there be rules on the thread, such as the truck had to be written off, or just any truck will be suffice?
There is the "Remember Me" section with is for written off vehicles. Maybe a specific thread in there.

Gav, that's not a rant, its purely speaking the truth.

Yeah mate very little damage, vehicle filled up with water around console height, but the lucky part we had the next 3 days at 30 degrees which helped to dry things out.. Gearbox had water in it and blew my two headlight Globes and starter motor which I should of just taken out and cleaned.

I nearly made it, was 3/4 across but lost front steering due to floating, it became very light as the water pressure spun me around backwards down the small rapids all this happens very quickly and the vehicle wound up on a rocky ledge.. It took us about 40 minutes to recover...

Now I have the Kaymar bar on its never even looked like floating....
