    winch hooked up to front bumper to spin me a little more to the left, then pull me off the steeple 😛

    then a very slow careful drive down, so as not to can-opener my door on that rock.

    Had a bumpy “good night and go to sleep” drive with my 3.5 year old turn a little extra adventerous last night.

    The incident involves a long icy hill, a tree, a large boulder and a rescue me phone call to a buddy.

    Ooops

    About 1 truck length from cresting the hill, a rather large bump caused a total loss of forward momentum, initiating a 50m backwards downhill slide. Oooops. This was at 9pm, So much for a tame sideroad tour to lull the wee one to sleep.

    An hour later had a Tundra driving buddy pick us up and drive us home. “Little Trucky” had a lonely sleep On the side of a no winter maintenance road overnight.

    Flash forward to 9am, loaded up with a come along, 30ft recovery strap, various 10,000lb ratchet straps, 80kg of salt, 3-ton floor jack a buddy and super powerful brains, recovery began.

    Pictured above, The rear diff high centered on the previously mentioned large boulder.

    -Come along rear hitch to tree on far side of road to stabilize

    -jack under low side rear axle to get diff off rock

    -fallen branch under rear tire to keep off diff

    -recovery strap uphill far side of road to big tree. Highlift, and strap in-line to front loop

    -TENSION!!

    -pour down 80kg of salt

    -proceed very slowly

    -setup again higher up the hill, and she walked right out of the ice ditch.

    Freedom!! Less than 2-hours including socializing, high-fiving, and cleanup. One softball sized dent in the bumper is all that remains of the incident. Total success.

    Dent

    Dent in the bumper as only blemish. Perhaps a scuff from a branch that’ll buff out

    It’s a memorable day to finish paying off the loan. Goodbye bi-weekly payment!! You won’t be missed!!

    Congrats on getting it out and no more payment, that must be freeing. I know a good paintless dent repair guy if you’d like his number, I dont know if you think the dent could be pulled out or not. He works out of burlington.

    I love that “no more payment” feeling!  That’s when I lifted and started beating on my Taco.

    Good thing your buddy was still awake!

    Back when we had beater trucks and there was conveniently a Canadian tire beside the trail.
