NOt near that bad. However I di get mine stuck...two weeks after we moved into our house. At teh time, I had to pull the trailer out of the shed, make a right hand turn uphill and circle to get out to the street. Well it had been raining a lot and I THOUGHT I had the 4wd locked in. I found out that I didn't when I got halfway up the hill and the rear tires broke loose and started spinning. I then slid down the hill, jackknifed th trailer and into a low lying area that was just absolutely saturated from the rain. I buried the rear end up to the axles. Had to unhook the trailer to get the truck out and borrowed the neighbor's tractor to get the trailer out. Needless to say, I introduced myself to the neighborhood that day with all the screaming engine and cussin I was doing!
