My Friend Flopped His Truck, PICS

this is my friends 81 truck, he was trying to get over that log, he was able to get one front tire over it but kept getting high centered on it, he then did a 4low 2nd gear foot to the floor attempt and the tire didn't go over it, but instead ran along the side of the log and the left front fell into a hole resulting in the flop, it was night when it happened the rock in the door was the only thing keeping him from going all the way over, its hard to tell on the pics, but there is a 10 ft drop to the left of the truck






Recovering

heres a better pic of the log


he was getting over it with the right tire, and getting stuck on the diff, the last attempt to get over it, the right tire did not go over it and the truck followed the log, he is welded in the rear and open in the front with 5.29's

Make sure to tell him he needs to change his rear tranny seal.

I just can't stand seeing that on a flopped rig.
