Default Bogged

A month or so ago I went to get some fire wood with my 5 year old daughter. Unfortunately what I thought was fairly solid ground ended up being a bottom less muddy creek.

After three hours of trying to jack things up, digging and using the firewood I had gathered as traction good old Gutsy was stuck fast and sinking so it cost me $100 to get her yanked out.

Even with the lift kit installed I am still hesitant to give it a second go.

Yeah that is a good one no jacking that one out. Being from WA originally I have only ever been bogged in sand this mud stuff is a completely different beast to tame.

^ Yes. I've also bogged my Triton - but in mud. Can't recall having bogged the Foz in mud though.

This was a first to be bogged in mud for me... was down south about 100km out of perth.
Sand is a whole different ball game and sooo much easier to clean!

Well after 5 boggings (various vehicles) in 4 days, then I see the paddock claimed the electricity meter reader when I wasn't home, I reckon one of these would be a great investment:

No matter how much you mod your vehicle they all end up in the same situation
