    Man I wish I had a camera with me, I got called out for a recovery mission. Had two stock height truck burried to the bumpers. Had a 95 chevy dually with swampers, sunk before he even made it to the Ford he was trying to recover. He was sideways in the trail and quite a bitch to get out. I had to drag the rear end sideways until he was straight enough for a good pull and whoop, he was free. I then went in pursuit of the 2003 F-250 Powertroke on Dunlop Mud terrains. He appeared to have most of the weight resting on the nerf bars. I thought I'd have a hell of a time pulling that pig, 3 guys there were laying bets that I couldn't do it. One good snatch and I was dragging him to high ground. The funniest part of the trip was when I backed up into position for the first pull and I hopped out to lock in the hubs. They were like "You came through that **** in 2wd......You dick!" lol.

    BTW, I was changing out my exhaust when I got the call so the pulls were made with open headers. I think I had bystanders ears bleeding. lol
    Just thought I'd share, had a hell of a time.
