      Toche! That is so correct it's not even funny! I'd sleep in mine before I left it all by herself!

      I left mine overnight once, but it was in the middle of a orange orchard where no one could see it. It was like 5pm getting dark and it was burried to the floor!

      **Updated Pics**

      Here is an update:

      That warm up we had a little while back did a lot of good!, The truck for the most part is out of the water. The surrounding Ice has melted but still a large amount is under the truck. I don't really want to try anything until I can see the differential. Here are some more pics.

      Icepick, sharpened shovel, sledgehammer, steel pipe, plywood, and a floor jack. Do it big.

      After it being stuck for that long, plan on taking apart a lot of stuff

      Glad to see your still kicking (instead of stuck and frozen under the truck).


      I've only left mine once, for about 8 hrs. But the entire engine was in the ocean, I didn't think it was going anywhere, and it was still stock, so I wasn't worried about people stripping it. I did remove about $10,000 worth of tools and kite boarding equipment before I left her, though.

      I feel like I've been waiting forever for this post. (Probably not as long as you feel you've been waiting for your truck, lol)

      Congrats!!!! How cold was that H2O you were wading arround in?


      I can't believe your starter still worked, haha, don't forget to change every fluid you can think of.

      Couldn't help noticing the damage to the rear bumper. Was that caused by the jack? if so, anyone know how to lift an explorer like that without tearing up the bumper? (Just incase I should get stuck myself someday.)
