    Hey guys,

    Yesterday my brother and I went for a little off road up the poleline and through some pretty deep frozen bodies of water. Later that night when i pulled out of a friends driveway i seemed the the truck was stuck, just on bare driveway???? I gave it a little more gas and BANG it broke free. Same thing this morning when i went to move. quite a bit of resistance and bang shes free.

    Any ideas what may be going on?

    I went to school in upstate New York my first year of college. The day I flew back home for X-Mas break, there was a major storm. My car was soaking wet when I parked in the airport's garage. Two weeks later, when I came back to single digit temps, my car wouldn't move. Finally I realized what it was, and took care of the issue. Frozen brakes.

    My e-brake also sometimes freezes on. I don't think you've hurt anything.

    Happened to my stock 98 the other day, took the E brake three days to thaw out after my little jaunt through the wilderness. and it popped like it was breaking something loose the first time it moved for the day afterward.
