Attention Socal Owners. Recovery Vehicle(s) Needed!!!!

i have to regret that i to say that we have a vehicle. that is over the side of a cliff over at santa clarita divide trail. it is properly marked and and tagged for its location. how i came to this situation is that me and three other truckswnt n a night run tonight and while turning, my ABS kicked in and i went the side of a cliff. from what i see, i damaged my right ride mirror, i dented the back part of my bed where it says FX-4, possible other damage might be a damaged front bumper and a busted CV joint. that skidplate really saved my truck from further damage.

currently, it is sitting over the side, about 150ft down and at a 50-60 degree angle.

so if anyone and i mean anyone local who has a truck with a recovery winch, shovels, axes and picks to dig the truck out. cos is caught under a giant bush.

i will cover for fuel for those willing to help.

you can contact Justin at 805.433.3202 since my phone is dead.

any help will be GREATLY appreciated.

thaks

If all else fails I can get hold of a hi-lift jack if you want to try and manually winch it... we would still need someone to bring the rest of the supplies though (straps, tree saver, etc.).

If all else fails option 2: Call a tow truck, they can winch you out.

yup, we got her out. mechanically, she is ****. nothing wrong with it mechanically. the body isnt bad either. there's a couple of dents on the roof, the right rear corner of the bed has a nice dent in it where it says FX-4 LVL 2, i need to have a windshield replaced and valence panel repaired. considering what it gone through, i couldnt be happier right now

WOW.

Robert, you got lucky with the respectively little amount of damage you got. I got a new LMC truck catalog, and they have valances and mirrors for your truck for 100 bucks apiece.

PM me and i'll give you my number and you can get the catalog, or the phone number to call them with.

Certifit.com has valances for 40 bucks, check them out too. I've normally found them cheaper than LMC.
