    Had it on for a few weeks, but haven't really pulled much besides a few cars and such at the lake. Well it got a workout last night. I pulled a Furd SD crew cab dually with the Powerstroke out of the bottom of a big sandy ravine. It didn't look to bad when I got there (steepness), but I had a hard time driving out of the hole myself /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif It got hot a couple of times, but overall worked out very well. Anyway just I would share that because I am happy, and nothing came off of my truck /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Bryan the truck weighed in at almost 9500 lbs. It was the girlfriends dads truck. The hardest part about getting it out was not getting a scratch on it. Hatd to do to a 174 inch truck surrounded by sagebrush. I wish she would have told me it was 2wd before we turned off the road. Oh well all is good and we proved the abilities of a 9.5. Also proved the abilities of a warn 12,000 this weekend when a buddy of mine sunk his 9,879 lb dodge (just got it weighed) in the sand at weber reservoir right along the bank. Then when they tried to comealong it to a tree a few feet back it slid the ass end and dropped the front end right into the lake. Those diesels arent lite. So we had a warn 12000 hooked to a duramax on top of the hill behind the dodge pull it out of the lake and half way up the hill and then the dodge drove out. What a long weekend. Thanks again for your help on friday brian. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
