    OK, I\'m officially a dumbass, buried the Yukon

    I was being stupind and took a backroad home because I knew it would have snow on it. Well, it didn't have snow, it had a 3-4" thick sheet of ice. I came around a corner at about 15 or 20mph and lost it, spun and sunk my right tires in the ditch. Not even locked front/rear and 33" All-terrains could get my Yukon out. I dug 4 big holes. It was so buried that I couldn't open the passenger side door and the frame was on the ground and the rims were completely under. I have a 2" lift and 33 tires, too. That sucker was BURIED! Luckily, my name is still on my dad's Allstate motor club plan. I was by my house, so I walked home and called and they came and towed me out. They had to tie the towtruck up to two trees to yank me out. It was unbelieveable. Once the snow melts, I'll go get pictures of the hole, it was about 3' deep! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I remeber I sunk my truck before I bought it, on a test drive (gah! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif), in a snow filled ditch, 3" Body and 32's and it was up to the body. The guy who pulled it out was amazed the truck was that tall.

    Sounds rather annoying, but snow stucks arent as bad as other kinds

    Well, it was a muddy ditch that I sank into. I'm surprised it didn't do any damage, the entire passenger side was sitting on the ditch.

    My wife wouldn't let me take my camera. She said my punishment for being a dumbass was that I couldn't take my camera with me to show all my internet friends. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    This is how it looked afterward, though. Just imagine this sitting almost on it's side in a ditch spinning all 4 tires with only 3" or tire viewable and the frame in the mud.

    How are you locked front and rear? To my knowledge, nobody makes a locker for 1/2 ton IFS? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Got a name of a company for me??? /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I know lockrite makes a front lunch box locker for the S-10 IFS and the 3/4 ton IFS, but there was always a void at the 1/2 ton.

    I got no idea, it was like that when I got it. All I know is I dug 4 bigass holes when it was spinning.

    Guess it probably isn't locked front/rear, more like posi'd front/rear. I guess, if that makes sense. :lol: All I know is I was diggin in good with all 4s! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    BTW, even if I had a winch I would have been fawked. The front bumper was on the ground and I was sinking fast. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Damn, that was pretty bad, dude! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    My truck was so tilted on the passenger side that it was all I could do to climb in it. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Re: OK, I\'m officially a dumbass, buried the Yukon

    Where in the boro did this happen? If you would have known, you could have called me and I would have come and tried to give you a tug out. Even if it didnt work, it would havebeen fun. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Oh, btw, all 4 tires can spin and both diffs be open, if there is practiaclly no traction at any wheel. The rear probably has a gov lock, so that explains that, but the front just probably had no traction whatsoever. I know ive seen my brothers k5 spinning all 4 tires as fast as it could, with open diffs front an rear on a muddy hill at uwharrie.
