Just your truck going up on that deck. Don't like to see anybody require that.

first time in 12 years of me owning this truck that it ever left us stranded. and first tow. i thought you meant he was doing something wrong while loading.

found a major problem.

wire harness that goes to starter from battery.
Was pinched between header and frame. 3 of the 4 wires are bare metal that would have been pressed against metal.

Good thing it didn't cause a fire. It is standard equipment on GM's

I hope you didn't use that hammer to get the harness off.
