i wish that i could say i got stuck in there with stockers but i was actualy pulling my buddies jeep out. we kept going through makin ruts and the only thing you had to do was control gas and brake no steering required the ruts just pushed you around the whole way. the guy with the jeep some how got out of ruts and side ways. we ended up rockin it for 5 min before he let me pull him. he could not go back or forwards. the front of the jeep was almost against a tree
unfortunetly james i had to as u know there are no hooks on the front and i left the lock on the reciever hitch over winter because i had my snowmobile trailer pretty much everywhere i went. i have a hook that goes in there but i could not get the lock out it is seized. and he needed a pull so it was the only thing that was available at the time
Hm, I actually didn't realize the Envoy didn't have front recovery hooks... that's depressing. I think as long as you were gentle and were working with a dynamic strap, you would be within the working load limit of the ball. Just don't go yanking hard.
ya your not the only one depressed with out the front hooks lol. id have to cut somethin in front bumper. but thats not going to happen. so i was looking at one of those front mount hitches. so i could put a hook or shackel in. as for the ball i had the strap tight and there was no jerking required. he just needed a little extra persuasion to get back into the ruts. my prefrence for off roading is mud bog and thats what i got my big truck for but some things its just to big for and some people do not apreciate the noise lol
yoou better believe those are street tires. they are 31s but hes waiting for his muds should be getting them this week and here a video of me water crossing i do not know how to post it so here the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNxEgfs0PiU
ya i wasnt to sure how well it would have gone over. i was not exactly sure on how deep it was. it was all done in 2 wheel drive until i had to back up on that one hump i slowed down a little because i didnt want to scratch the side of truck. if anything had of happened my brother was there with his diesel to pull me out lol
