Off road adventure

Recommended Posts

A good customer of ours called said she went off the road near her cabin. Appears the lower ball joint broke and took the fender with it. This is over 1 mile off the pavement. Tried getting to it the other day but it was so muddy we took a pause. Today I took my f150 up the trail because the ground was frozen and gingerly slid her down to the hard packed road in 4 low. Came back with the flatbed to finish the job.  A couple skates and she slid right on. I jacked it up, removed the wheel, and put a block under the control arm to slide it off. There was no real way to jack it up on the soft ground to load it. Overall it went smoothly even though the wheels were cranked towards the ditch. Hooking a chain and dragging 5000' down a mountain path isn't my idea of professionalism but there's no way a wrecker was going up that path.
