The only time I got "stuck" with my Jeep was when I high centered it near Steinaker Reservoir, north of Vernal. It was on a narrow steep ridge-line that sloped off both ways and also sloped off front and back. I couldn't winch it, had absolutely no traction on any wheels, and couldn't budge it myself. I ended up paying a tow truck $50. All he had to do was put out a long line and then pull me about 3 feet, just enough to get me going again.

That's when bumper jacks shine. Just jack one end up as far as you can get it, then give it a shove to tip it over (if the cuss-ed thing hasn't tipped over already). Repeat until clear. Once turned a car completely around like that in a narrow cut driveway up to my wazoo in snow. Or, in this instance, you could possibly have put rocks under the wheels one at a time as you got them airborn. Sort of built up enough cairn to "float" it free.

Till the been there done that
