Watch: How to Get Your Vehicle Unstuck

So, you have a nice off-road vehicle but you can’t go anywhere. Things are just too slick! What do you do?

You improvise.

This is one way to do so. It’s an old trick, but one that works. In this example, a hunk of lumber has been attached to a drive wheel using a ratchet strap. The driver is able to slowly back up, using the board as a sort of crutch to limp along.

The thing to remember is to take it slowly. Spinning your wheels too fast might cause the board to fly free, tearing up your truck or a bystander.

Sorry for the crummy camera work here… but it’s the method that matters.
