Jack it up to take the weight off the tires! Isis mine a couple days ago.

Also I've had to thaw pipes. That shit sucks! I had forgotten to shut the valve off when it was above freezing then the cold front hit and it dropped to neg temps over night with a high of 17 in the day. I was out there with a propane torch thawing the valves so I could shut it off and then had to thaw the whole pipe to get it to drain. Not near as bad as your situation but I hated every second of it.

It was jacked up. Fucking bolts were that damn tight. Had the same exact problem trying to remove the running board brackets.

Really gotta crank on them. I had to use a breaker bar and a PCV pipe to turn mine.

Oh I see. Did you try putting any oil or PB blaster on it?

Nope. Didn't realize they would be that tight. I will though once I get some new sockets.

Well now I'm in a pickle. Found out my valve is definitely bad. I have the replacement valve, but can't shut the main valve off. Don't have a big enough pair of pliers. My neighboring grandpa does, but he's not home, and I'm having no luck calling a plumber. I guess my options are waiting it out, or heading the the hardware store.

You're obviously not looking hard enough.

It never ends. Got the valve replaced, but STILL don't have water because it seems the the lines froze up somewhere else.

I hate how people feel like they can drive with led pods on. Its not like it says "Off road use only" on the box or anything. I would flash my light bar at them but I don't want to piss of the people behind them.
