Eric; I hope you plan on doing a full service to your axles. T Case & trans after going through this.

Does anyone just toss garbage out were ever and leave it? Then why do it with an old truck?
Andrew Koetz

Eric; you should invest in some more snatch blocks; you could have used a couple for this winch out; and used Clifford & the Gladiator as anchor points and possibly a "Holmes Tree"

Air down. Airing down is better than chains. That stuck would have had no problem at 5 psi

BSF --I had the time today and watched about 20 of your "vids" sorry forgot to thumbs up them they were great. Good taping and editing !!!! I am just gonna say one thing in response to your setting up conversation with me the other day I was REALLY ----REALLY impressed to see that "Scuba" --Streamlines owner was running the exact to the "T" set-up I suggested for you. I am really impressed with his rig . That's how I had my '69 Chev 4x4 set up only with a nice western clean body. Scuba's running soft aired down Swampers with a 4-speed (which he does plan to pull for an auto). And I would suggest him to go with a super built turbo 350(NO up and down screwing around shifting-- and if they tell ya they can't be built to be as strong as a 400 I got proof (from pulling) they can. I even built with Seven Springs OFF Roads help in Dubuque, IA., A Dana 44 that will take more than a 60. I gusseted the spindle ends--the pumpkin sides and stuffed it with all "lifetime warranty " internals. Inners, outers, added splines(with a 30 degree twist to strengthen the chrome moly shafts, milled out the entire spindle housing to clear(bigger u-joints ---at full front wheel lock --stainless anodized blue hub turn knobs and used an electric E-locker for no "DEPENDENCE " on your air supply acting up. I ran 42" Swampers /"BUILT" for torgue a BBC- 425hp./ 465 4-gear built by "Torgue King" from Billings MT. / 205-t case-speaks for itself!!!/10,000lb under front bumper(flip up licence plate)./ 10,000lb. rear--under bumper where spare was located --all remote!!/ and lastly for drivetrain in the rear an Ho 72 Eaton GM LOCKER. All with "456's". 46"LED light bar on top of the tailgate and 72" LED for front of cab light ahead of my strobe county/state regulation light. I'v'e got on board air compressor, 20 gal. tank , 40ft. hose, recovery tools-- HI-Lift -- brush ax-- chains(4) AC-DC Invertor, dual batteries, (3) cooling fans --(2) engine and (1) just plain underhood --for summer all on a panel of 15 lighted rocker switches, I have talked the D.O.T. office into giving me an 8500 plus(wiggle room) truck towing rating !! I can do mild recovery (not at your scale) and winch vehicle with my under-bumper rear winch on to my 18' dovetail 10,000lb. utlity trailer. This is what I can safely and dependably accomplish with my set-up. P.S I do still believe we can work in comfort--I got an really good Vintage AIR underdash "cold" AC system in summer !! I plan on subscribing to ya too !!! Gett'in some swag--- LOL !!!!!!!!!!! REALLY LOVE YOUR CHANNEL--WISH I'D SEEN IT YEARS AGO !! Hope your readers can get a bit of help from some of my input !! Maybe I can "recovery " a few side -by- sides stuck or broke down in mud and snow around here locally. Thx. Jim

Never anchor off of tie points especially something that has been sitting for 3 years would of been better to wrap chains or recovery straps around the axle..

i dont deal with snow. but i either run 100% stock size tired of 44's no in between. and once the 44's are wore out i will go to 49's because they are now legal to run on high ways in Texas now. well they have been but these still haven't wore out yet. LOL most of the time they get cut before they wear out.

Don't want to act like a know it "ALL" here but anbody with any brains always takes advice !!!! I know pretty well how to set trucks up. just retired after buying, selling and body-of-framing close to 400 1967-1972 Chevy/GMC 4x4's. Also have done alot of pulling, mud playing etc. Your pissing up a rope in a wind storm with three main things holding your performance AND fun back !!!!! Number 1--- those hummer tires you run are a hard road rubber meant for pavement and very rough terrain(dessert)!!! If you went up to a 42" Super Swamper SSR you would be absolutely amazed at the snow and mud performance plus gain clearance too!!! Number 2--- I'm thinking you might be run'in a bbc but don't know. If you are it isn't built near enough!! Get a cam in that SOB so you can turn some rpms and get some REAL work done. And lastly Number 3---- throw that turbo 400 in the nearest dumpster and put in an old SM 465 4-speed. And if your not happy with the road rpms add a Gear Venders behind the t-case. Now you've got an indestructable rig for what your'e do'in. Also man you're really miss'in the boat here by not double rigg'in your pull-outs with snatch blocks You'll pull twice as much-----twice as easy!!!!!!! That one video of your recovery from a creek when ya crossed the water your truck's 400---- up and down shifted I counted 9 times . That's ridiculous. Put that fu**er in 1st gear with a 4-speed give her the nuts, let that big block rip and you'll shit your pants with the difference your truck will do. It would'nt hurt either to get her up another 4" or so then you can easily run a bigger tire like a 42" or a 44". Then you'll be happy on the highway too. I've been building trucks for 45 years, I have people call me 5, 10 times a week for advice on resto work. I just like to see really good productive results---don't mean to piss anybody off. I listened and learned my whole carrer, STILL AM !!!!!!! Only an idiot doesn't take good advice !!! Good videos though!! Good luck ----take care!!!!

I do like the SM465 trans, and have several of them in trucks. I left the TH400 in the wrecker for one simple reason, when towing out in the woods off-road I have a lot of things to keep track of, and working a clutch would just be one more thing to do. It is hard enough to keep track of where, and what you are driving over, how much speed, and momentum you need, while watching the towed rig to kept on the hook, and off the trees. As far as the tire go They are cheep military surplus, not the best for traction, but tough. One outside duel has a rock gash in it, cords showing, and still holds. And by the way the wrecker is a off-road only truck. When I built the wrecker I did a lot of calculation, shear strength of axles, torque input, and slip torque, (traction) the combination I have seems to keep me from breaking axles, gears, ect. I am running a SBC that was built for torque, not high RPM or horsepower, it has been very reliable for me, when I run out of power or traction we always have another rig to hook on a help out. Thanks for the chat, and keep watching.

A good set of chains on all the vehicles might have helped. Also enlisting the help of a large 4x4 farm tractor might be better.

I cannot help but wonder apart from entertainment value why the hell do this in mid winter when there is 2 foot of snow on the ground when you could have done it in the dry or even when the ground was frozen much as I would love to have a Jeep XJ Pickup truck that truck looked to be rusted out.

When Eric was contacted by the S10 owner and his friend they asked first for advice on. How to get it out. They had tried several times over the 3 years to get it out but becouse of where it was in a swamp they were unsuccessful. Eric thought that going after it I. The winter when the swamp might be frozen would be better odds the. When it wasn’t! By the way the swamp sill wasn’t frozen all the way! Stay tuned! Thanks for watching !

Just going to say. . . . Did anyone check to see if was even still worth recovering? It looks like it rusted and crusted to where you have to deduct numerical points from it's name . . . So judging by what's left ide say a S-5 . . . . S-6 if someone has glaucoma had desperately wanted one when when they were younger . . . Hell even today the Chevrolet "Monkey Coffin" still has a place . . . I had a small block in one. All that aside . . That turd wasn't worth the effort. . . time or labor! Now it's a shame when you see 32 Ford coupes shot up and abandoned in the woods . . . But let that rust in pieces please

The S10 was not being recovered for its value the land owner was being told it had to be removed or the state would begin assessing fines. It’s stuck in a swamp which is a water shed. Thanks for watching ! PS no S10 is worth what it took to get to this one!

After talking to the owner of the truck and the land owner. We found out all previous attempts to get it out were when the ground was thawed. We figured if the swamp is frozen just enough we might be able to get to where others couldn’t. Was it the right call???? Thank for watching !

Blake Talley

On the wrecker Eric does use chains. Here in Mn chains are illegal to use on the streets so we don’t have chains for Towbie or Clifford. Since all of filming is done mostly in the warm months it not been something we felt was worth investing in. After this trip though they might end up in the Amazon cart! Thanks for watching !!

Why not find a farmer with tractor to pull out in the first place? Hay field? Lots of trees. Don't know how to rig for cables and snatch blocks? Waste all video driving 250 miles? Don't know what ground anchors are? Two or three thousand $ to recover beater?
