Oh damn, I just about pissed myself at the "how to get out!" That's FUNNY! The only thing missing was some banjos playing as they go running after the truck.
So is this like a "hillbilly off-roading, what not-to-do" video? I can't believe the guy stuck his leg out as the truck started to tip!!! Damn man, let it roll - it's only metal - you've only got one leg!
or at least leave it in gear. Damn he's lucky, although I don't know why he got out.
Then agian, I did something of similar stupidty one of my first times out. Couldn't get up this big hill, so I put the ebrake on, stopped the truck, and put it in gear so I could get out to see what I kept getting hung up on. I never got a chance to get out, luckaly. Well the transfer case turns off for the front tires and only the rear were holding it, which wasn't enough. So instead of starting the truck first, I had my foot on the brake and released the emergency brake and there wasn't enough brake pressure to hold the truck, so I ended up rolling down the hill backwards. I've learned alot about 4 wheeling since then.
