    I'd like to see some pics of our trucks saving or rescuing full size pickups. The bigger the better. Let's see 'em!

    Not really bigger but this was my first rescue ever (The red Rav4). Also later on in the day I pulled out a Dakota. Still not much bigger but figured I'd post.

    Pulled out a few full size rigs.

    Only pics I have.

    This was an 7.3L excursion that blew out his front hubs. Stuck in snow. Me and a TJ winched him out together, with another Tacoma anchoring the TJ as it was just pulling him.

    Can't really see him.

    Pulled out a durango that night too.

    Then later pulled out the same 7.3 excursion and a blazer who was trying to pull the 7.3 out. Terry buried his blazer on 40s.

    In the end a TJ, the Blazer, and I all winched him until he got on solid ground. It was soupy nasty stuff and he is HEAVY.

    Never took a picture because it was raining, but I pulled an F250 out of a ditch on the side of the road. It was raining and he had street tires on the wet grass. I was also on the pavement...

    shouldnt brandon have some blanket or a jacket on that cable to pull it down should it snap?

    also, why do lo-pro tires suck in sand?

    I think his wench line is synthetic, not metal cable.

    To get better traction in sand you need to remove some air from your tires. Deflate the tires to 15 PSI or so and they will leave a bigger footprint on the sand, therefore giving you more traction. If you have large rims and low profile tires you cannot deflate the tire too much. The taller the sidewall the more you can deflate without the bead coming off the rim.
