your right Brian it was. too many people, too many opinions, which is what sucks about that whole thing. But nothing happened and I got out.

I didnt know what was going on back there. I was in the truck and on the brakes and couldnt see anything.

That whole situation was a clusterf#*k because there were guys just standing there watchin that had trucks that could have snatched him out. I had a guy in a Suburban ask me to try and pull him out with my truck!
ya there was to many people we didnt know trying to interject for sure

The Bronco,Hummer,Explorer,F-150's I have no clue who those people were.

chad i knew you were gonna say something about that. i was just waiting for it. i knew we didnt have enough but we got him out pretty easy so i just left it. it wasnt a hard pull with the winch. it was only hard when people were trying to snag him.
we pulled him a little then we did back up and get more line out. i dont think anyone took a pic like that.
as soon as i pulled up i already had a a truck tied to the back of me and the line hooked to zach. and i didnt really want to test the ice and walk out there so i left it how it was. lol

zach spray some belt grease on it and see if that stops it. or PAM cooking spay works. thats what i use.
have u tryed ur winch? wonder if it still works after being in the water for like 30min. prob froze up all the gears. maybe a tear down and clean up might be smart. i just did mine and cleaned all the brushes.

yeah that sucks, That sand will get into all kinds of nasty places via the water. Between my 3.0 and 5.0 i think i have replaced 5 Idler pulleys from bearings going out on them. you can only stand to drive around with the nasty sqeal for so long
