So I did my good deed, helping my buddy out by transporting the couches he and the girlfriend wanted so badly to dispose of, and the Titan was obviously easily prepared for such a task:
We get to the place where an acquaintance assured us we could dump the couches on their bonfire pile of 8 or 9 other couches, and to "just drive over the yard around the trees and well pipe back, no problem."
We drove back to the bonfire pile and unloaded without an issue. On the way out there was some severe mud ruts formed at one point and so I planned to avoid that as we departed. I started to back out the way we had pulled in (in 4x4 HIGH) and a previously non-muddy portion of the ground, possibly due to the weight of the truck, just swallowed the truck's wheels a bit:
I tried to rock it out twice and then stopped because the wheels were halfway buried at that point. Maybe 2.5" clearance from the front of the frame rail to the ground.
As seen above, I tried just wedging 2x6's on site under the rear wheels but no dice.
It took hours of digging mud and jacking up the truck to get the planks underneath using two different floor jacks ...
... and then a pull from two different Chevy 1500's (one pulling each front tow hook) to get my damned Pro-4X free.
What a day.
I actually own the premium version of the Hi-Lift Jack and all the associated extra add-ons - and they never got moved over to the truck from my old Subaru "because I was too busy." I assure you I will be fabricating a mount for the Hi-Lift Jack, as well as for the MaxTrax boards I just bought now (after years of salivating and considering).
Aftermath of the episode:
Anyone else have any grand tales of getting their beloved Titan XD stuck so thoroughly, yet?
