When I got the propane truck stuck, we had to pull it part way out by the wheel. After we got the front end out though, we reset everything.



Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Hopefully you didn't pull to hard on the wheel and if you did, I would be getting your alignment checked as well as your tie rods/ball joints/wheel bearings.

lol, a propane truck is a lot bigger than a Mustang, and require more drastic measures to pull it out when it is sunk that deep.

Yes unfortunately I had to pull it by the rim.....it was already pretty much down to the frame in mud....no way to grab anything else that was sturdy.

Rim and alignment has been checked and nothing was hurt (thank god) andit was only pulled on the concrete a few inches...as soon as I saw the front wheel was on therei stopped pulling it.

I wish it had never even happened to begin with but I did what I did and everything is ok and I didn't require the help of a chevy....dignity is still a little intact!

good to hear nothing was damaged

I'd sooner let it sit there than get pulled out by a chevy

I'd sooner let you sit there with that kind of attitude.

I've been pulled out by my dads Subaru when driving my Ranger. I've got absolutely no shame from that.
