    I don't have pics, but I pulled a Ram 2500 4x4 out of the snow on the I-15 median during a snow storm. I pulled over to give the guy a tow and he looked at me like "are you serious". I hooked up, 4Lo locked, and pulled him right out. He said thanks and was speechless after that. I replied, "Don't under estimate the taco". Then I through my tow strap in the bed drove off. I was grinning ear-to-ear for the next 30 mins.

    I had the same happen except with mud.

    My buddy and his friends were offroading on a trail in his 99 Ford Explorer (2WD). I came and noticed that he was in a ditch and that his rear wheels were not touching anything.
    I hooked up a chain to my trailer hitch reinforcement(bad decision) and since he didnt have a tow hook on the front of his Ford, I looped the chain around his frame and bumper reinforcement.
    I gave 3 honks and yanked him out of the deep ditch. I bent out my trailer hitch reinforcement and I took out the bumper valence on the passenger side of his Explorer.

    My dad is not too thrilled about a bent trailer hitch. At least I didnt hook it onto anything that I KNEW would break.

    This dude didn't have hooks neither. So I wrapped the strap around his sway bar and explained that I am not liable for anything that happens.

    I was going to do that, but then the radiator and everything was directly in front of it.

    And the frame was the closest I could get my hands on without getting too muddy.:eek:
