    I am not going to be able to assist as previously planned. Life gets in the way sometimes. Hope this all goes well.

    It would probably be best to get up there and give this rescue mission a try before the sun thaws out the frozen dirt in the morning. An attempt closest to sunrise would make things easiest. Cold, but cleaner

    Thanks all! I went by the truck today and was in a big pool of water. No way it would've frozen over. I dug some channels to hopefully get most of the water drained for a better chance of a good freeze. I think it should be good for early morning. Also dug around the tires to free them up, they were pretty vaccumed in.
    I know it's a pain in the ass, but is anyone willing to help out before sun rise?

    Weather forecast says 11pm before freeze level. I'm betting your best chance is right before the sun comes up. 6 a.m. Up posed to be the coldest temp at the airport. Adjust accordingly for the elevation since warm air rises.

    What happened to the activity on this thread. If the meet time is that early then I can help. I need to know something before I go to bed. I have no idea where to drive to. Someone please update this.
    I have lockers and a winch.

    Thank you Wojo1, I can meet up at Home Depot at 545. Have an extra set of hands on this side if you think we'll be able to manage to get it out.

    I sure hope others are showing up. Not sure one CJ is enough.

    Yes, Home Depot off of mccarran, brain dead suggested we meet there if there were a handful of people to plan approach. But we can meet wherever makes more sense. Any more confirmations? 😬

    I'll be at Home Depot at 5:45... storm gray JK.. mostly stock, but I'm on good duratracs and a full set of chains.. I'll bring whatever recovery gear I can collect up, should have at least 2 good straps.

    Just to it's clear, the Home Depot off N. McCarran.. across from WinCo...

    I'm collecting up gear now (5:00am), if anyone needs to contact me: 775-229-6673 (text or call)

    I'll check in on this thread before I leave, only about 10 minutes from Home Depot.

    Glad to help... It's a pleasure when the stuck person engages in the process.. you did a bang up job digging, I suspect we would have had much more difficulty had you not done that yesterday...

    Early was a very good thing. The ground was noticeably firmer when we started. HeckFJ wasn't stuck that bad and had already done a pretty good job digging out. We needed to clean a bit more at the rear diff and tires. WOJO1's winch made short work of getting him out of the hole. I positioned to tug him the rest of the way. Pretty smooth operation all around.

    I think HeckFJ took at least one picture, maybe more. There were only the 3 of us so we were all busy doing something... I had a camera but completely forgot about it.
