My friends 2nd Gen Nissan Xterra that’s lifted and on 33’s, instantly sank 2 feet while trying to get to the Sheppard hot spring. He was buried to his doors!
I’ve performed many snow recoveries over the years, but nothing like this. Not with a rig buried this deep. I did not have a kinetic recovery rope, but I had a good idea of how much force to use. Being familiar with you vehicle is key, and I can report that the body of my midsized Honda, the Dirtcom tire carrier and the 4122 inc hitch slider, as well as all pins associated did not take damage.
Even though this wasn’t my first rodeo, there were some lessons to be learned. Chains helped so much here. I have little doubt that if I would have chained up from the start, this recovery would have been completed alot quicker.
So who here has been in a situation like this? (Btw, I have a bunch of stories and other YouTube videos.)
