WOW, Look what happened to me today!

There are a few moments in a Super Duty owners life that make you smile and proud. Today was that day for me.

Now, I know most of you 6.7 guys, like myself, dream to come upon a Fully Loaded Semi truck that is stuck firmly in the mud so you can offer your beastly powered towing services to free them from their ugly bonds.

well.......

I was driving back to my office from lunch about 30 minutes ago, when low and behind, theirs a Fully Loaded Semi truck blocking the feeder road that leads to my office. Of course, he is holding up tons of traffic and they are diverting vehicles around him.

The driver obviously didn't follow the past 3 days of 6-9" of rain that fell on Corpus Christi making any pot of mud into a mud boggers dream.

In an attempt to back into a furniture stores parking lot, he used the freeway shoulder median to pull into so he could back of straight.

Yeah..... stuck!

He wasn't going anywhere. His rear tires were spinning both ways with no luck.

Of course, this is where I stepped in.

Offering my complimentary towing services, I asked if they wanted me to try and pull him out. They agreed....

Now, here is where I got a little pissed. While they were hooking my 30k tow strap to the tow hook on their truck, my co-worker pulls up and I tell him to film the entire event......

so what does he do? Acts like a 3yr old holding a camera for the first time and hardly films anything. Anyways, I was able to stitch what I had together and hopefully it shows you my glory experience pulling out my first Semi Truck.

Once we got my D-Rings on his truck and hooked to mine, I was in 4Low 1st Gear....honestly, It was so easy to pull him out I thought it was the tow strap stretching. Nope, it was the semi being ripped from it's muddy bonds by...you got it... 6.7L of Ford Build Truck!

Guys, it was a great feeling I hope all of you get this type of opportunity at last once in your life...... Its great when you see Rams and GMs driving by wide eyed in disbelief.

Not sure anyone though I could do it (including myself).

I am. I should have clarified. I saw the truck stuck. I didn't get to see a live version of you pulling him out.

That's interesting (you living in Corpus that is). There are a ton a 11+ Super Duties around here, just to see too many owners on these forums.

If you don't mind me asking, what do you do for a living here? I'm an Engineer

I'm a Project Engineer for a Drilling Fluids company.

Yeah, you never see anyone on the forums, but when I buy a vehicle, I join a forum for it before hand to research everything I can. Worked out well when I had my Titan.
