I would have been worried about getting stuck and scratching up the truck... But hey... That's why we have them!No kids please, sorry about the language. I was kinda nervous and on edge about how tight the trial was and getting stuck. Hard to tell from video but the trail is very narrow and deep sand. Not the best quality either, taken from friends iphone.
I was super worried about getting stuck down there with a big truck. There was hardly any places to turn around, so my thought was to keep momentum going and run up the other side. However, the road that was suppose to be on the top of the **** was gone and the lake was empty. I should have got pictures of how it was completely washed out, it was like a 50 foot wide and 30 foot deep hole. The **** was completely gone and there was no way around it. LOL I did get some pretty bad drag marks on it too from the trees on some of the tighter trails.I would have been worried about getting stuck and scratching up the truck... But hey...

More from Eglin AFB. Airing down trying not to get stuck. Video and pictures are hard to tell...but there really was some deep / loose sand.
Nice picture, looks like a fun road.You shouldn’t have any issues in the Eglin sand. 4hi slow and easy will take most places. Trails do get tight, invest in a DA buffer and pads LOL.
I do wanna get some Maxtraxs. I have seen them in action and man are they nice. Just a little pricey because I want four of them.Any time I come across a decent trail I try it out...and because of that I always keep A LOT of recovery gear in my truck. Surprisingly enough though, my truck hasn't been stuck yet. BTW, you wouldn't have been worried at all in that situation if you had Maxtrax, shovels, HiLift jack, etc etc in the truck.
Yes, good recovery gear is expensive. I justified the cost of buying high quality stuff because unlike other mods, it doesn't go away if you change vehicles.I do wanna get some Maxtraxs. I have seen them in action and man are they nice. Just a little pricey because I want four of them.
Love it. I need to add things to my packing list now too, and just leave them in the truck.Yes, good recovery gear is expensive. I justified the cost of buying high quality stuff because unlike other mods, it doesn't go away if you change vehicles.
I'm probably a little over-prepared (if there is such a thing). In my truck I keep 4x Maxtrax, HD chain with hooks, long recovery strap, snatch strap, both hard and soft D rings, 48" Hi Lift jack (need to get a mount for my 60"), Hi Lift wheel lift accessory, e-tool, saw, lots of ratchet straps, zip ties, gorilla tape, jumper cables, tire puncture repair kit, Viair compressor, go-bag with tons of stuff, trauma kit, first aid kit, took kit, fire extinguisher, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent, freeze dried food, water & water filtration, extra flashlights with batteries, etc etc. Oh, and full size spare tire...lol
Looks awesome there, nice pics
What size tires are you running? They look bigger than 32s, but maybe its the angle.Hills are cool places
