Matt, yes you can invoke normal extended with iid, and you can make it do it by jacking it up, or getting stuck in deep mud.
Beware chaps, some on here who have used extended modes whilst off road, with large axle articulations and steering lock, have popped a cv joint on the front drive shaft. That will spoil your day!

Yep, you've got to know when you're beaten. Man's gotta know his limitations.

Ok thanks to all, its seems it must have been the low range option that caught me out and obviously I was NOT in Neutral, as I do remember keep putting it in park. Perhaps I should have googled it whilst stuck in the ditch waiting for my rescuer. I won't forget that next time and not that I'm in a habit of driving into ditches.
Thanks to Gareth for the advice on the super extended height option too, I'm sure that will save my bacon one day too!
If in doubt and all else fails - read the manual

We tried everything to get it out but had to get the farmer out in the end.
