    What to do...

    These trucks are fairly good in light off road conditions with the traction control etc etc. If it was not a ground clearance issue it was a traction issue. Get some new tires and go at it again. If it gets traction you will make it. You will be surprised at the capabilities.

    These trucks are like tanks in the snow. Point in the direction you want to go and it just goes. You need real tires , its certainly not the truck.
