M4RKETT1 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default off roadin

well, i went a while back. framed out and wheels were off the ground. just spinning. broke 3 straps. finally got it out with a heavy duty and some improvising with the jacks they come with

here are some pics. and no, i do know what i'm doing. i was off on the side so i wouldn't get in...it was just to slippery and a wheel caught and all went downhill from there. we actually pulled it out backwords using the shackle and a HEAVY dute strap. we jacked up the front toe hooks, placed wood and stuff under the wheels, i really do think we wouldn't have even needed a pull after we did that. but we didn't take the chance because we only had one chance, it was getting late and it was cold...and lightly raining. very fun day though. oh and since it was my car. i was volunteered to go underneeth and tie up the strap to the shackle. i got covered and soaked with water/mud.
