what not to do with a 10,000 pound truck :doh:

I finally got the video of me getting pulled out of this hole on you tube so I thought I would post it up and some pics as well.
I had gone through the same hole a few times the day before with no problems and went back the next day and it was way deeper and I centered out on the differentials. Water ended up coming in the cab so I had to gut everything and clean it out.
Here is youtube link YouTube - obx stuck f350

Geez man that thing was sunk! I thought the last time I got stuck was bad. That must have been a real pain drying out the interior. How much did it cost for that tow truck to come out

the tow cost me $250 dollars, but it wasn't so bad because I was fully reimbursed by my insurance company. Believe it or not that was actually a road down there in Carova, NC so I guess since roadside tows were covered in insurance I lucked out.

Well thats nice that you didnt have to pay anything for the tow, I know when my buddy got his cummins stuck in my swamp a tow company wanted 600 bucks to come pull him out, luckily after three hours I got him out with my truck

Man I was in a situation like that two years ago, but I had to get out fast cause the river level was rising(I was in my old Z71). Glad to see that you got out though. A little off topic but how are you liking your KM2's.

The tires are nice, they are allot quieter compared to other mud tires, they were starting to wear weird and get louder so I just rotated them, but its my fault for letting them go about 10,000 without rotating them.
