    Why did it cost you $1750.00? Is that your truck?

    My Wingman pinched a hole in the passenger seat!! No damage to my truck which was my biggest worry. We almost went over. The truck was on 2 wheels for a moment then settled back on 3. We tried to get it out with 1 tow truck the first day and almost lost him when a chain around the frame too keep it from rolling snapped. We then brought a second truck on day 2. It took 2 trucks with a total of 4 winches to stabilize and pull him out!

    If you had gone over, how many miles would it have rolled before hitting the bottom of the hill? It just looks like a long way down from the pics.

    In a while, Chet.
