My flaps do good, put if thats not good for you put a drain in the bottom of the J pipe. some the like a 3/8 gate valve or a bob cock. I'd say 3/8 or 1/4 ball valve but I don't think it woud like the haet. thats gest my 2 cents

Yes, that was me. I had to go recover a 2wd wrecker that got buried in the mud, and the 4x4 he was trying to unstick....

Nope. I hadn't planned to do anything, I just had got home from work, when I got a call that the tow truck was buried and could I come help....

I didn't really get any pics, it was almost dark and raining pretty hard. It was a fun job. First time using the big PTO winch, thats way nicer than a warn!!! Also first time locking in 6wd, which worked flawless as well, air-shift t-case.

I tried strapping out the tow truck (belonging to my sister's boyfriend...), that led to me digging into his yard a foot. So we figured out the winch and it drug him out no problem.

The guy's F150 was buried to the frame with a 30ft camper attached. Backed the deuce through where the tow truck had been stuck, winched him out to where I got drag him out on a strap. 2 hours of messy wet-clay.

I was impressed how well the deuce did. Everyone's tires were going right through the grass sinking into the clay until the frames were on the grass. The duals and 40" tall tires let me keep going without sinking to the axles, and the truck pulled out that F150 without any effort.


This was the guy when I got there. Ground was saturated, and you just sunk into it. There was a fence just past the pic, so when I backed up to the fecne, there was only enoguh room to winch him forward 15-20 feet.

What I did on my Ford diesel tractor was parked it under a leaky roof so water would leak into the stack, fill the #2 cylinder freeze in the winter and expand until cracking, so in the spring I could just drain it out of the oil pan. Incidentally it is a lot cheaper to cover it than not cover it as in my application.
