with a bunch of these gas bags for mildew:

and some desiccant sacs.

and haul up a propane tank for the heat gun.

Heck, it'd probably melt all the snow inside as well...

I didn't really get a look at the passenger windows, but my impression was there were no broken windows. That snow has probably come in right through the weather seals.

The front row is packed to the gills, second row has lots of snow, and there's plenty in the front of the trunk as well.

Someone needs to correct the post on 14ers.com about the specs of the truck. Pretty much every spec he listed is wrong. Not like anyone cares on that forum.

Seems like removing the drain plugs under the carpet would allow any melted snow water to drain out as the freeze/thaw cycle continues through the Spring.

Or drill a few holes while you're there at the current low floorpan points (based on how it's parked now), and worry about filling the holes later. Bring a DeWalt 18v and some 3/8" bits.

Funny I was thinking the exact same thing It would work great but the P side would have to be dug out and anything underneath.

If a group goes up there I would bring some tools along to take of the rack, that to me would be the first thing gone.

Bingo. How long of a trek are we talking here? If it's long enough, I've got gear to camp out up there, but it'd take me a while to round it up and get it up here.

That said, I've never hiked with tools in my pack. Sounds like an adventure to me.

Even once you get it running. I have a feeling that Webster Pass road will be closed this summer. I came down in on my KTM end of september and there is a really really narrow section. The road had washed out. Barely passable in a truck, I was afraid on my KTM. We discussed this in another thread. It's gonna have to come out the Montazuma side. I think. Which is the north side and will hold snow even longer. You're all very kind to offer assistance. But I bet it's almost June before you can get down the road and I'd be very impressed if you're able to get it out under it's own power. I know you all love 80's but that thing's a write off. IMO
