Help near Snoqualmie!!!

Last night I was driving on Tinkham rd. (exit 42 off I-90) and got high-centered in the snow and dug my tires in pretty deep. The Jeep is stuck about 1/4 to 1/2 mile up the road. I need someone with a winch, or maybe really good snow tires, to come and pull me out. The battery also died and it is very difficult to get near the front of the Jeep for a jump start.

I was forced to leave the Jeep unattended on the road over night and would like to get it out of there as soon as possible. Right now my dad and I are in Bellevue but could get to Tinkham in about 30 minutes.

If you are willing to help, please call my dad Craig at (425)221-9552


P.S. If you help, we'll pay for your gas and treat you to a nice dinner. And I'll owe you one once I lift the heep.



Thanks in advance
Zak



UPDATE: My Jeep has been rescued and I am fine.

Wow, those pictures really don't look that bad.

The whole time I was up there I kept thinking three things:

1- I need a front locker
2- I need a portable winch that I could have put in the trailer hitch
3- I need different friends who would have been more willing to dig in the snow



When I was driving home I kept wondering how much farther that Raider got up the trail.

I have learned not to screw around with what might look good enough to get unstuck. I now use the highlift jack to jack each end as high as possible and stuff as much wood/rocks under each tire as will fit. That way you got a higher traction/clearance route out first try. Done this 4 times now. 1st two times took 3 hours. After jacking all the way up, the third time took just one hour, last time minutes.

While a winch and locker are both good to have it looks like you just need better tires, like some AT or MTs. Running low tire pressure with good tires you should not have any problems, and you shouldnt need chains.

Well to make a long story short........

White Cherokee (CrazyWalnut) was the stuck vehicle, dug himself in pretty good. It took a good pull from the winch to get him out.

Silver Rubicon (JonWood) rescue vehicle did all the work.

Yellow Rubicon (L&R Jeeper=Me) support vehicle.

Ford Raider just some guy that really wanted to get pass us in a hurry......lol...then got himself stuck a few times then went on his way. But I must say he did help and gave the Cherokee a jump start before he left.

Over all, fun day away from house duties..lol....... "Honey do list"

Yeah I know I need new tires, lol my racing slicks aren't very good in the snow. I'm just waiting for the lift so I can get the right size tires. Although I have changed my tire size preference down to either a 265/70-16 or a 31" if I can find a 31" for my 16" wheels. And I'm now unsure about what tire I want to get.


Any one want to recommend their favorite tire?
