Find yourself an older fellow that has "been there, done that" and have him come help you. Nothing like experience and know how when this kind of stuff happens. Watch and learn.

Recon,

We get stuck like that a bunch up here on the beaches. You cannot pull it unless you lift it up first. to do this you need a high lift jack and some 2x10's.

Jack up each tire by the bumper closet to the tire and place the board under the tire. After all 4 tires are clear of the ground. Give it a tug. If its real soft ground the process may need to be repeated.

If you try to pull it straight away the front bumper, alxles and under carriage are plowing ground.

You can use pulleys, and a block and tackle set-up to double, tripple, etc.your pulling power. However, it then becomes easier to snap the pull line.

Good Luck

SJ

This is how I got unstuck....

2 Things you will need: one large tractor, 6-8 or more chains.....

hook up 1 or 2 chains between the truck and unstuck tractor and drive them until the tractor is in large ruts...then unhook the tractor and move forward out of the ruts....hook another chain to the first ones....and repeat untill you are able to drive out.......It took me about 100yds of chain

tie the rope to a big tree or double it up ,then run it thru the rim of the tractor wheel and put the tractor in low gear and reverse and the tractor acts as it's own winch ,or chain some small logs like 4" in diameter and wider then the tire of the tractor and it acts like a paddle .couple of ideas ,

Wait until the ground freezes, then do the jack up trick.

Oh boy, I have been there... I vote for the hi lift jack also... Man those things are a pain to carry around, but they are a life saver.

Sounds to me like you need a friend with a bulldozer. I was in a similar situation a long time ago and that's what it took to finally get my truck out after fighting with it for a little less than a week. Good luck.
