Ok guys .. here are the rest of the pics I promised I would post. These are also with my puny 265-75-16's. I'll post pics with my 33's off-road in a few days. ENJOY!!

P.S- In case you didnt notice I'm stuck in pics #4,5 and 6. All my tires were spinning and I was bottomed out and barried so nothing could have helped me exept another 10 inch lift .. my friend got stuck in the same hole as well, but he was trying to do it in reverse. I have to try to cross it again though with my 33's, the additional flotation and ground clearance may get me through, or utleast further through. LOL

Hey, thanks for sharing. Your rigs both look great. I would never run a mudhole like that though! [:)]

looks like quick sand to me. I can't even imagine standing there and sinking in slowly.

I'm probably going to get a winch put on eventually ... I just hate how they can be unreliable sometimes though. And they arent waterproof, but we'll see.

My friend got stuck twice that day and I only got stuck once. But it's also because he was leading and I chose a better line. I dont know if you can tell, but he's stuck in the first pic. He doesnt have lockers and his traction control is'nt the best I have seen so only the two tires with least resistance were spinning. If he got a rear locker I'm pretty sure his truck would be more capable than my truck.

It had been raining the whole day and it only stopped when we started wheeling. So you can imagine how nasty this stuff was. The moment I stepped out of my truck to hook the strap up to his winch my shoe got sucked under. [:p]

The 4 Runner's got two things the ML doesnt have: a locking transfer case, and articulation! [:D]

Three things.

It has that cool periscope for when you are under water.

LOL

Those are awesome pictures. Mud is the worst. It fills in the treads and turns your tires to slicks.

All the locking transfer case does is give it even power to the front and rear axles.

You also forgot he has a better angle of approach and the truck is slightly lighter.

But what I have is more ground clearance, more HP and TQ, better tires albeit the same exact size, a wheelbase that is shorter by 1", less overhang at the front and rear, and a superior traction control system. [:p]

Did I miss anything??[?]
