Re: Got stuck on Memorial Day...
Boy, that's an old story....if it happened on Memorial day....since we just had Labor day.... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Sorry, just had to give you a hard time about that!
Anyhow, I was wheeling Monday too, but didn't get stuck. Had my 62 year old father with me, so I turned around when I got to a spot I wasn't too sure of. Since we had been on a 4-wheeler trail through a forest (mud, downed trees and narrow corners) for the previous several miles, he didn't argue my decision, and was flat out impressed what the little '5 could do.
My best "dumb stuck" story was in my '95 Ranger. I drove into a small depression I'd been through many times before. Somehow I managed to stick front and rear bumpers on opposing sides, holding my tires off the ground. Doh! Oh well. My niece lived about 1/2 mile away, so I borrowed her old Ram and jerked the Ranger out. The depressing part is I had the Jeep at home, and I was only looking around in the Ranger, not intending to wheel. Live and learn I say!
Have you flushed all your fluids yet? Did the engine take on any water?
