Stuck Tundra on Cameron Pass

Got to test out the new BFG KM2's this afternoon on the snowy cameron pass west of Fort Collins. A Tundra pulling a pop up camper had slid off the road and down an embankment. Another Tacoma pulled up as well, may have been with the Tundra. I hooked up to the Tundra and the tacoma hooked to me and we gave it a go but the tow rope between the two tacos let go. I gave it a try by myself and was able to pull him up with the trailer.

I was very proud of the little Yota and have to admit I had my doubts. Sorry no pics but when the trailer jackknifed if did some damage to the Tundra and I didn't want to be disrespectful and snap a pic. Glad to help some other guys out in time of need in the middle of nowhere though.

It is winter time up in the mountains. Watch those mountain roads.
