Shooter, It most cases mud tires will help. But the mud IPT was in his street tires saved him. They didn't dig. in that mud digging is the last thing you want cause it'll drop him to the frame in a blink of an eye with no ruts cut thats trouble. If i had pics on my mud pull last year in my 78 you'd see. when we busted the tow strap yankin my friend out we thought we was on stable enough ground to just pull him out when we hooked the chain up. let the clutch out in granny 1st 4lo the tires barely turned sinking it a bit, but just enough as we retracked the ground was ready to give way one tire spin later my 33's was down truck on frame w/out ruts to move in. a week later 100yrds of chain and 2 F350 duallys settin on pavement to move me. That soggy never dry stuff is unforgiving.
