    pulling up a hill

    went on a vehicle recovery last night 12/9/12. as i was pulling him up a steep hill, my front driveshaft decided to break. as soon as i heard the pop i killed it and got out to see what broke. it was setting in some pretty deep holes where it was digging. being a 5speed i always kill it in gear, except apparently this time because it rolled back down the hill barely missed the other guys ride, ripped the chain clean off and hit a tree, so now i have trashed bumper, dent in the side and my tailgate got a little dented. but on the positive side i still got both of us out in 2wd.
