@ Edgeman4.0- thats funny how you mentioned that. The first winter I had my ranger..back in 2004 the ice froze the drum to the brake shoe and I didnt know what the hell was going on. Keep in mind the truck only had about 3000 miles, give or take...but I had to call Ford Roadside to come tow my Ranger to the dealership...Never forget that!!!

Does the same thing on my sisters caddy,

But that probably wont work being that its not really winter and there is more of a chance of the cables being stuck.
