When the GMC got stuck in the sand we would drive around in the Jeep collecting rocks to make runways so the larger heavier truck could build up some speed. The GMC would then be unloaded as shovels and jacks are used to put rocks or sand ramps under the tires of the stuck vehicle. When the truck got out you had to drive it to firmer ground and the YJ-L would be used to shuttle the supplies back to the truck to be reloaded. A winch would be nice—as long as you have something to winch to.
