Nice thing was I got the truck for $4000
    So today I was driving along on this back road on the top of a mountain and I pulled off the road to see the view. There was about 3 feet of snow on both sides of the road. As you all know most roads have a crown to them and that small crown gave me just enough slope to slide my front tire into the ditch. I was thinking it would be no problem so I threw it in reverse and I just spun. I put it in 4 wheel drive and I just spun. Then I tried going forward and ended up driving further into the ditch.

    Now the right side of my front and back tires were both in the deep snowed ditch. The only tires spinning were the ones on the road but they were on the ice. After about a half hour trying to get the Taco unstuck by taking sand from the road and shoving it under my tires I was bout ready to call someone.

    Then this Ford comes around and yanks me out no problem. It was a little embarrassing because my truck looks like it could go many places because of the tires and the lift, and then I get stuck in this little ditch.

    Oh well, at least I got out.

    Who cares about getting pulled out by a Ford? Shit happens. You probably could have been pulled out by a Corolla.

    Buy a locker and call it a day.
