The rear axle weighing 1,347 lbs is mired to the axle with the front axle mired to tires with a weight of 1,402 lbs. You have access to the front of the vehicle.

Ideally, If I could get close to the casualty, I would like to put a lil lift on it with my pull to break the suction of the mud. If that is not possible then a low line to the front and dig away some of the built up mud to prevent damage. I am assuming there are keys available which will be helpful to steer the casualty and also to get it to roll up on top of the mud while winching. Depending on the resistance and length of pull, it would probably be nessesary to 2-part the low line. 

PROFESSIONAL TOWING & RECOVERY IS NOT JUST A JOB.. IT IS A LIFESTYLE
