If you are expecting a true "kill" story about my truck smoking a duraturd, and said duraturd destroying tie-rods or going into limp mode, I am sorry to disappoint. However if you like pics of a Chevy doing what a Chevy does best-- being useless, please read on.
Today at work, I was driving around the job site in my company truck (2004 2500HD, 6.0 Vortec), giving my client, WisDOT, a tour of the jobsite. At regular intervals, I was pulling off the road and parking on the shoulder to show them an area of special interest. In one such area, I was beginning to pull over, and felt the front of the truck start to sink, naturally, I proceed to apply additional horsepower and turn the truck back onto the road. However, the Chevy had a mind of its own, and slid further into the soft shoulder and sinking into the mud. Even switching to what passes for 4 wheel drive (open differentials front and rear, so really 2 wheel drive
) was no help. With two of the worn, highway tread tires in the mud, I was thoroughly stuck, and embarrassed... Luckily, there was a utility contractor was nearby to pull it out with a backhoe, but not before some incriminating pictures were taken:
PS: I did not have my truck at work, i prefer to drive my car that gets 38 mpg to work
Otherwise there would lots of pics of a PSD dragging the Chevy back to safety
