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.
