Yes, I got stuck in my driveway. It’s been raining a lot here in Missouri, and both sides of our driveway are saturated. Backing the truck from the shop to the house, I got off to one side, the mud grabbed me and I was too deep to drive out, quickly. We have a four-wheel drive pickup but, alas it wasn’t heavy enough to get me out.
A phone call to neighbor Bill and he was on his way to our place with his tractor. While he was en-route I got to thinking about a customer that had asked me why there were holes in the front bumper. I explained to him about the tow hooks, how they worked and that we had them with the hopes that we would never need them. Well, when I see him next time I can tell him they do work. Bill arrived, we connected the tow strap and wala out of the mud the truck came.
In the video, I show how the Classic Cascadia has the tow hooks mounted, how to install them into the holes in the bumper, and returning them to the mounting bracket. One tool, a 9/16” socket or wrench, and you’re able to access the tow hooks. Not all Cascadia’s are equipped with tow hooks but I would say towing companies that deal with trucks carry a set of their own.
Tow hooks are one of those items we carry on a truck that’s better to have and not need than to need and not have, just my opinion.
Until next time, be safe out there.
