LOL... yea thats another reason I like the Lift mate, the opposite tire is still firmly planted on the ground. which helps things from sliding around.We were stuck so bad he just left Blazer in neutral, but when Blazer was up high enough, it rolled back just enough for lift foot to slide out, but lift jaw stayed ‘hooked’ to lip of bumper.
Top of High Lifted fulcrumed back and through the grill and radiator splitting them both down the middle almost to centerline.
Now we were REALLY stuck.
My jack story... long before I knew about the lift mate I sunk my truck in some deep mud in an old retention pond. Front-end was pointed out, rear still in the mud/water. I put down a block of wood, jack foot in the center, jack itself going into the hitch receiver hole. Started lifting it up... went WAY high to get the springs to finally start pulling up on the axle. Well... not paying attention, the wood started to get pushed down into the mud... and not evenly. At some point the wood rolled in the soft mud, jack slipped off and with all that weight and jacked nearly as far as it would go, the truck pile drove that jack's nearly entire length down into the mud.
I hiked down to town, got a friend to drive me home, grabbed my dads 4x4 tractor, drove to town, picked up my friend, drove back up the mountain, pulled out the truck, then backed into the mud where the truck was, had to use the hydraulic lift and a chain to pull the jack back out. Then drove the tractor back home with my friend driving my truck.
Ah, high school days... lol
