Sooooo,

Let's preface this by saying IM AN IDIOT! I realize this, so now that we've gotten that out of the way here's the problem that I need help to find a solution for.

I managed to get a f-250 stuck at the bottom of a LARGE field tonight. It is a field covered in snow, brushland, grass, and mud.... Sloppy, wet, thick, nasty mud. The truck can not move from where it is stuck because it is in THICK mud at the very bottom of a long set of hills.

What's my best chance at getting this thing outta there. I've already accepted that there is no way a towing company will risk one of their trucks getting stuck in the same field while attempting to pull my truck out.

Ate tire chains a possibility? Mounting them to a set of tires that are stuck in mud? If yes...where do I find tire chains for the massive tires that come on this new f-250

Wait till it dries out... Might be only option, but it's my bosses truck and I'd rather not have to make that call to him tomorrow and say that he's not getting his truck back or a few days cuz I'm and idiot and got it stuck at the bottom of a sloppy field.

???? Any ideas? Anyone been in same situation before... With stuck truck?


let's f*cking rage!

either get another truck with a 16k winch or go back with a shovel and start digging. Youre probably resting on the axles by now so chains arent going to do you a lot of good, especially if its the type of mud youre describing.

this

12V Power In, Power Out Winch - 3000 Lb. Capacity

chained to a tree, with a 12 battery a pully mid line chaned to another tree then attached to your truck. 1 person working the winch another giving the truck slow and steady gas. adding the pulley doubles the capacity. Its slow but it works.

skip to 330 to see pulley set up



they sell pulleys as well

You can also get this wench at sears. It changes the winch from 3000lbs to 6000lbs.
this is how a friend got my blazer out for me when my 4xd crapped out when i was off roading.

Dude, where did this happen? If you get that winch, I'll come out tomorrow and help you get it out.

damn sucks that it's an f250. i have a small winch on my car trailer. but it barely pulls 3-4k cars up on the deck. couple that with the fact that my current vehicle isn't that offroad capable, i doubt i would be help any with an f250 in as deep mud and as far back as you are describing.

If it will rock at all, get some metal bike ramps you could stick under the tires to provide a hard surface and climb out.

F250 diesel weighs at least 8000lbs. That 3k winch will implode even with a pulley. You should have a winch with a capacity double the weight of the vehicle.

From working in a shop with a tow yard in Colorado, most large flat bed tow trucks have a few hundred feet of cable to work with. We would anchor the truck on the road and use it for recovery when car's and trucks fly off I-70 in the winter.

Some yards also have long chains to help drag the afflicted car/ truck closer to re-attach the winch.


Personally if it's manageable, a high lift jack, a few 7-8ft wood 2x8s, and a heavy duty come along (winch is preferable)

Honestly 2x4s and a shovel. Pics would help.

I got my old exploder stuck in mud up to the floorboards, both axles up to it, managed to dig it out enough and use enough sticks from the woods to get it out. I was in the middle of western NY with my gf and no cell service quite the oh shit moment. Oh and i'm sure it was private property. It will take a couple hours at least.
