Thumbs down The pictures explain my night

First pictures here are where I was able to back the truck down a city street into a parking garage








Refusing to have it towed home we got a ride from my wife's mom and got some supplies

Towing would have been a good 125 bucks for the short 3 mile drive
zip ties and wire FTW

best of luck with the truck
good choice not to get the tow too
it saves lots of $ but sometimes you need it in a jam
