Operation: XJ to the rescue

I went over to my friends house to show him some pics of our last trip through the woods. We decided to take a short trip out in the woods, no more than an hour. I had to be back to town by lunch to pick up my girlfriend. That never happened! We were out in his 98 GMC ext cab full size and decided to follow a familiar trail. We just took this trail at midnight a few weeks ago. Well when we got to the small pond at the end of the trail, it teases you like you are a wimp if you don't try. I made it through in my stock XJ, but it is damn deep! If I were going slow, i would have had fish in my cab. So we decided, let's try it. We did and he hammered so hard he dug right into his frame and it was over. We walked 12 miles back to civilization and retrieved my Jeep. First we tried a tow strap, no good, really buried. Then we tried a 4 ton come along. from several anchor points, no dice. Then finally we used my Jeep as an anchor and then a tree with a second 2 ton come along. We cranked him out of it and I used the tow strap to finish off the job. Always bring your Jeep, you never know when you will have to pull out a GM product!

Good reason to never go wheeling with just one rig. If all else fails, you still have a ride back to civilization. Good story man, I've been there and done that with my jeep... pulled out a friend's full size chevy truck a number of times.

In my defense...

I figured that day, since last time, I pushed two holes through my right side rocker panel and the passenger side floor I would let him wreck his vehicle for once. We were just going to kill an hour, how much trouble can you get in? Ha hA!!! No I will not wheel without my beloved XJ anymore, I swear
