    Leaving my friends shop, I just wasn't paying attention, and drove into the snow covering the ditch. I had to get his skid steer to pull "me" out. Still took some time as it was slightly uphill, and skidders tires bald... and my cab so rusted, that it twisted to the point where I couldn't open my door, had to jump out the window...enjoy...
    Now my steering wheel is off to the right, but it doesn't pull.

    Another interesting thing, no one stopped to help, even tho it is a well traveled road....

    BTW, the shop right accross the road with the Christmas lights, is where a couple were brutally murdered by their truck driver last Christmas. Very sad, as they ran a succesful business, right on a little lake. Shame...

    Just cranked on the steering wheel to straighten it out, then wrapped seat-belt around it, while reaching thru the window, door wouldn't open.
    1 ton? Typo, and ya can't edit the headline, sorry. Spossed to read 1/2 ton. But it does have 1 ton springs all 'round...
    Off to install Taiwan right rocker... keep watching this thread...
