    I got stuck yesterday, up to the frame in mud. The 20k tow straps broke when we tried to jerk the K5 out. It didn't even move. I dont have a wench yet, so I'm lost as to what to do. It is located about 100yards off the main road, on a trail. The entrance to the trail requires a short wheel base and or high ground clearance. Is there some sort of towing service that can get out there and wench it out for me? Any ideas about where to find an off road capable wrecker or just some service that wenches people out? The vehicle is located in Odenton, MD, near Fort Meade. Thanks.

    The only easy day was yesterday.
    Second place is a body bag.

    Any farms in the area or do you know anyone that has a 4wd backhoe? Those are your best bets.....

    Have you tried posting this to The Offroad Mailing List? I think there are some people on there is MD and they may be able to help..

    Hay Boon, I think after you get the lift done next week the next investment should be a winch. After what happened last week and now this you could deffinately use one. Any vehicles on base that you could borrow to go get it out? Good luck with it bud.

    It's stuck by surface tension. Take some time, get a bunch of 2x12s and a hi lift jack. Get the boards under each wheel- Yes you will get dirty, and it will be a pain in the ars. You only need to get it high enough so the undercarriage is out of the mud. Then yank it out.
