    So, last night I planned out a 7 mile route that included numerous dirt road threw two state parks, and a campground. I planned it thinking I just had my 35 Mt's put on and I'd like to get my baby dirty. I made a date with my father, picked him up at 10am, and we set out. About an hour to get up there, then we started on our journey. Now, it has been raining for two days, and is going to continue for another two days. I knew there'd be some fresh good mud.

    We started at green falls rd in voluntown ct, heading towards the campground. About 3/4 way down i seen another puddle on side of road so i decided why not and hit it. Was no puddle.... about 5mph and hit it front left wheel IMMEDIATLY sank in, then gunned it cutting right slighty to get out. Did not work. A few back and forth's and before I knew it we were stuck.

    In the process of the back and forth's the front bumper got ripped off and we had to tear the right side free.

    Anyway, 2 hours of waiting and freaking out cu the water tablet rose 3 inches in that two hours, my cousin's showed up in a toyota tacoma. Hooked it up hitch to hitch and pulled me out.

    Pic's.... Enjoy

    Are you going to replace the plastic bumper skin or upgrade to a steel tradesman bumper? Or maybe get an aftermarket winch bumper? LOL

    I could have made it through...maybe in my '89 Cherokee 15 years ago, but not in my '14 Ram for sure. You are a humble man to show the pics of a Taco pulling you out. Very nice looking truck BTW.
