Mazda to the rescue...again!

Hey everyone, I was just sitting at my house looking on here when I got a

phone call from my neighbor. She asked if I could come pull her out, because

her little brother(13) had just backed the truck into a pond. When I got

there I wasn't sure I could even budge him because he was in there pretty

bad & the front left tire was still on the dock. But I hooked him up w/ my ski

rope that I had & double looped it, then started pulling up the hill. I was also

going up an incline. He also had a boat trailer hooked up to his truck too, so

I was having to pull that up w/ him. Well I started going up the hill pulling

him too & he was coming out. I didn't spin a tire coming up the hil also, I

was VERY amazed w/ my truck. And I know what you all are wondering, do I

have pics? Yes I do, but they aren't on my camera, but as soon as they get done fishing I will get the camera & post them up!!!

Sweet, gotta get a real tow strap though, before something gets broken like a windshield.
30 ft 3" pro-comp straps are pretty cheap through 4wheelparts.

Nicely done! Double looped ski rope though? That's got bad idea written all over it. I just picked up a 20k lb towstrap for $27 from 4WP. I'd suggest you get one also. They're just a good thing to have around, especially for times like this.
