    I love this, but just wanted to point out, you can cut the tree which might have been easier than trying to wiggle the trailer and the truck free. Oh well I loved it either way, didn't want you to struggle so much. I think a lot of people said it muddy/slippery roads you can deflate the tires to get more grip or use tire chains to get through the slippery bits or use bits of wood/sticks to get enough grip for the tires on the slippery bits

    The Diesel is getting in past your Injector Cups. When they crack the high pressure fuel is allowed to enter the coolant system via the coolant passage. To repair them it requires the injectors to be pulled in order to remove and replace the cups. The Injector Cups are relatively affordable under $20 each. Replacing all the injector o-rings will also cost you around $100 the reason you had heck getting them nuts off is because the collars on the NUTS are crimped to keep them from backing off.

    Those fasteners you were trying to remove look like the same type that are used on aircraft structures called "Hi Lok" fasteners. They're designed to be torqued once and not come loose, which is why you couldn't get them off easily. Great job on moving that frame assembly back to where you needed it. Good to know information.

    I bet the moved that hitch so far in as they did not anticipate making tight turns and more often than towing needed those high strength tie down for shipping, airlifting etc. There must be a military procedure to prevent any turns under a certain radius... But did I just watch Andrew have his very own mudfest?

    @Andrew Camarata proper planning prevents piss poor performance. Your way of thinking....... there's a tornado headed straight for the house, I think I'll go feed the dogs. My way of thinking........ there's a tornado headed straight for the house, I think I'll head to the basement. P.P.P.P.P.P. You say its an excuse to have an actual plan in place. For example, im gonna haul a container up a mountain with a truck a very small dozer, in a rain storm. That was not a plan and turned out to the stupidest thing I've watched in a very long time. You can't fix stupid, and you won the award on that day. Congrats on getting smarter, using the proper equipment, on a better day. You just proved me right, THANK YOU lol

    @Andrew Camarata container, mountain, dirt road, rain storm. Once again, you can't fix stupid, and that was stupid! Container, mountain, dirt road, sunny with blue skies, checked the radar, different outcome! Make better decisions, have better outcomes/results 👍🏻👍🏻. If I'm going fishing in a 20' foot boat (your dozer), in the ocean (your mountan), im checking the fukking radar!

    Why not just cut the hitch part off, weld an extention piece on then reattach the hitch? Also next time you may want to back that forklift on the trailer. The forks almost hit the back of your new truck.
