uh... wow... so much for "damage free wheelin" huh? :D

You need to turf the front spoiler if you plan to off road again... it's like a giant squeege, waiting to get ripped off the front end...

NICE JOB!

If you do play a lot in mud it really is all about traction...tyres make a difference, ie an aggressive tread. But most of all do not get in the mud flinging biz as this will cause loss of traction and the tyres will get full of mud and not bite into the mud! As soon as they slip/spin you are sunk...I found that low range and slow and steady gets you through some "sticky holes"...it is a lot of fun to experiment. KEEP AT IT! :rellye

PS - Like many of us here I speak from experience - having a lesser 4x4 tow you out of a predicament like that always makes you a wiser fellow!! Now, if it was a fellow LR - that is a whole different story! :drive:

Like Serg said, you need to remove the spoiler prior to off-roading next time.I've seen a lot of RR classics with them removed for off-roading purposes.I think yours is fixable though, the only real damage being replacing the "hellas".

Uh, what kind of tires did you have on there? I couldn't tell from the pictures, but they appear to be highway rib...that won't help you much in that type of mud.

Make sure you hose off the undercarriage very well after an adventure like that. Nothing like mud stuck in unseen places to promote rust...

i wish i had lockers,and more agressive tread ,and more clerance.
but i sure beat mostly all out there in articulation.
for the tires i had michelin synchrone in the front and continental contact A/T in the back. .
i am waiting for some more pictures from the kind ppl who helped me out of the ditch.. but it took them a good hour to do that. they were a jeep with a wintch and an old suburban...on the way out my left rear wheel was three feet in the air and there was a big applause. many ppl had fun see me gettin in there and getting out..
This was supposed to be the last ditch i crossed. i had done this one earlier in the day from the other direction. but it looks like i did not get to cross it from this direction.. ;)

Does your LWB still have air suspension, or is it converted? Does the traction control in the rear work, or do you have some kind of fault? Usually, ETC will get you out.
