Yeah, frame and axle draggin. When I jacked it up to put in on boards the whole bottom of the truck had a 2 inch thick sheet of ice clung to the bottom that I had to break off little by little with a hammer. The wheels were all frozen solid, due to being full of ice. Thats how I snapped the shaft, trying to break the wheels loose with power.

The hole that it was in were soo deep that I was able to fit in those cement blocks that are a foot tall and two feet long, into the holes, and then I began stacking boards on top of that!

What is the alternative to waiting for the spring thaw? Blowtorch?

Yeah, I unbolted the wheels, and used a mixture of the hammer and a blow torch to free the wheels up, (about an hour or so per wheel). Once I finally got it out, I parked it in the garage and left the kerosene heater on for a couple of days to defrost it a bit.

If I had let it sit till spring the truck would have been totalled, that area floods really bad in the spring and the truck would have been under water.

Its back on the road now, no worse for the wear except for being a 2x4 for now.
