There's NO WAY you'll recover that truck! (Rescuing a Chevy Silverado)

Matt's Off Road Recovery

So we got a call for a Chevy Silverado that was stuck on the top of Boulder Mountain.
The owner had slid off the road back in the fall of 2019
The truck came to rest in a very precarious position.
He was able to hike out to Highway 12.
He had one towing company go and look and four others that just refused.
The forest service was threatening to fine him if he didn't get it removed.
We were unfamiliar with the area and everybody we talked to made it sound like there's no way we would get it out, because of that we were a little apprehensive going in.
It was about 60 miles of rough dirt road, which was doable in a stock pick up.
About a block from the truck we got to the top of the mountain with some of the most amazing views on planet Earth.
This truck was down an extremely Steep and off-camber Trail and then off the side at about 45 degree angle.
Paul and Matt were able to get it rigged up and winched out of there.
It actually went rather easy.
Surprisingly the truck started and we were able to drive it out.

Matt's Off Road Recovery
So we got a call for a Chevy Silverado that was stuck on the top of Boulder Mountain. The owner had slid off the road back in October. Luckily the truck stopped for an unknown reason! He was able to hike out to Highway 12. He had one towing company go and look and four others that just refused. The forest service was threatening to fine him if he didn't get it removed. We were unfamiliar with the area and everybody we talked to made it sound like there's no way we would get it out, because of that we were a little apprehensive going in. It was about 60 miles of rough dirt road, which was doable in a stock pick up. About a block from the truck we got to the top of the mountain with some of the most amazing views on planet Earth. This truck was down an extremely Steep and off-camber Trail and then off the side at about 45 degree angle. Paul and Matt were able to get it rigged up and winched out of there. It actually went rather easy. Surprisingly the truck started and we were able to drive it out.

So many keyboard commandos will post comments suggesting that the terrain shown in videos isn’t nearly as aggressive as it’s made out to be. I can’t imagine how gnarly this was in person; it looked pant-crapping on screen. I’ve brought back pictures and video from riding snowmobiles out west; no comparison to being there.

Theres no way you can use block and tackle to pull it out? I thought this was something ive never seen before , but nope just clickbait. Should change the title to " interesting recovery video for people who dont offroad alot".

My only problem with your videos is they last way to long. You could cut down on the length by omitting the extra non valid points to the recovery.

You guys really need to use cable blankets / dampeners . People die here in Australia all the time from cable snapping and taking peoples heads off or getting hit in the head. Take it from someone who has experienced it first hand. Cable dampeners please

I’m no expert, but this whole time I was just wondering how the Silverado managed to go all the way out there and get stuck in what appears to be stock tires.
DANIEL McPeck
DANIEL McPeck 23 hours ago
They were stock truck tires. Don't know that's on it now. And it was driven out and then back to town. I don't think Matt thought that was going to happen. I'm not going any where out there with it's replacement.
