Default Looks bad

Mr. ak_cowboy,

That looks like even if you had 4 wheel drive, it wouldn't get you out.

I hope no injuries.

Is there a story? How you got in the ditch? How you got out of the ditch? Inquiring minds want to know!

I was out with a girl (go figure) and we ended up on top of this ridge that overlooked the city. There was a little bit of a pullout, so I pulled in and parked for awhile. When the time came to leave I guess I was at more of an angle than I thought and I felt my rear tires start sliding. I stopped, pulled forward, and put it in 4wd. Then backed up quickly, hoping to just bounce through the rough spot, it didn't work. My rear tires were on the road (though my driverside was 3" off the ground) and my frontend slid into the ditch against the trees.
I called my buddy who has a 2009 F150 with 33"s and he got me out in 2 good pulls.
Only injuries were my passenger side mirror and my pride

OK! That explains why no tire marks in the snow leading to where the driver side rear tire is in the 2nd photo. That tire would be 3 inches up in the air! Awesome!

Do you think if you had a trailer hitch mounted power winch, you might have "self extracted" from that ditch?

Its possible... I think if I had a front winch I could've definitely gotten out, there was a power pole with 30 feet. Better front tires (I only have the stock all-weathers...) and larger tires overall would have made a difference too. The biggest thing would have been actually getting out and spotting instead of just driving backwards in the dark lol. It was -30F that night also, not fun...

37's and there is a trick to get them to fit good and have no clearance issues with a 6" lift.
