Well I don't believe that task was ever done. With that situation, we would have probably wasted more time trying to get the hood up because of the positioning of the vehicle. The ditch was blocking the hood.

The vehicle had step blocks on both sides and the tow truck operator hook up a change of direction from a tree and secured the vehicle from rolling over prior to our arrival. The vehicle was very stable in that case.
