Pic floating around FB

This pic of the FS truck has been floating around Facebook today. LOL I understand that it happened down near Florence. Lot of comments and concerns of stupidity being paid for by tax payer or OHV dollars.

Stuff happens, I will not pass judgment until I know the whole story.

If its a diesel you'd be surprised. The front axle on my truck weighs more then my Jeep's total weight.

Where is the link to the story though?

Yeah, last time I weighed my truck it was 4300lbs front, 2500lbs rear without me in it.

I don't off road with it, but when I air it down for the drag strip I go 25 front 15 rear.

I'd still like to read the story on this truck that got stuck. I know I wouldn't drive mine through that, it sinks into just about anything.

Um... No.

Obviously he meant "The weight supported by my truck's front axle alone is more than the total weight of my Jeep." But I digress.

My combined weight is about 25,000 lbs. I air the fronts and all 6 trailer down to 15 psi. The Duallys I air down to 20 as they squish down with all the pin weight of the trailer.....goes out on the sand nicely.
