    Higher compression pistons?

    Or a better e-brake?
    I swear it wasn't me!

    Maybe he was looking for free car wash. Upholstery and carpet included.
    Going to have to install some taller guide bunks if he keeps wanting to do it that way.
    My friend took that picture it looks like you could drive out of that situation. He must have been deeper or flooded some electronics because that truck sat down at the ramp a few days.
    Sorry to get you in trouble over on pound feet thread. Those guys take their torq values serious.

    No worries, he was just messing around a little like me, I have seen the same thing happen 2 times, my dad almost lost one when the transmission went out on his truck, all he could do was hold the brakes till someone with a chain could pull him out lol

    I backed my boss's tundra down a steep ramp, set the e-brake hard. When he went to take off with his 21" jet boat he didn't move, so he poured the coal to it. Exploded the ring and pinion. 160 miles from home, I was wondering if was going to have to walk. He's got a big logging outfit so it didn't seem to bother him. He's used to breaking lots of stuff.

    Sounds like a Toyota problem... My Dodge rear is way stronger than that!

    If you get the tires on the green, and don't have it in 4 wheel, it may slip in. If I have to wet my tires on a green moss ramp, the transfer is locked in.

    He likes his new Toyota's, one hell of a e-brake, heavy boat. It did pull out when put in 4 wheel and released the brake, front wheel drive.
    All my old rigs e-brake don't do squat, but rust up.
