Stupid Co-Workers, Stupid Me..

So, I was told by a Co-Worker that I did not park high enough on the snow bank yesterday so today I climbed it and as I got to the top, and put it in park, the back side of the hill gave way and I ended up high centered on the hard pack snow ridge in the middle of the pile.

That's funny, just let the warm jeep melt the snow.

I would do something like that, but that darn 70 degree weather is stopping the snow

I have a recovery hook in the back and tried to pull it out with an Avalanche to no avail. the front suspension bottomed out and wasn't touching the ground and pulling it straight couldn't get it over the ice mound that I was centered on. Took a local Wrecker and a 15,000 lb winch on a boom to lift and pull me out. Created a nice topic for conversation here at work though!

Lol, epic embarrassment. I would have just shrugged it off and waited for the snow to melt, then backed it right up and out.

I let it run for almost an hour and the ice never budged. I would have driven it forward if there wasn't a 50 degree drop off leading to soft marsh and train tracks! Imagine the bill for THAT winch out!

Yeah, I just did something like that the other day in a fresh snow pile, I couldn't get all the way into the "spot" until I rammed the pile a couple times, then when I tried to leave, I was kinda stuck, but I just floored it for a while forwards and backwards and it eventually moved the snow enough to hit the ground. Gotta love open diffs The best part is that the school now comes later in the day to get these snow piles with a bobcat, the guy was loading snow right next to my jeep the whole time I was trying to get out, he was probably laughing pretty good.

Nice jeep! When I bought my ZJ, I originally wanted a dark blue limited, I love my green, but I wish i woulda gotten a blue one, yours is about exactly what I would do with mine had I gotten a blue one
