Al's old rear-wheel-drive (2WD) pick-up truck is stuck in the snow. He does have a few concrete blocks loaded in the back but where should he locate them for maximum weight and traction on the rear tires? In front of the axle as far forward as possible, directly over the rear axle or behind the axle as far to the rear as possible?

Correct. Also if he still couldn't get out, he could drain some coolant from his radiator and pour it on the ice under the tires. Actually though, it's not a bad idea to carry a gallon of antifreeze with you in the winter for that purpose.

hey don.....I don't think the epa would appreciate your suggestion. I don't know how detrimental ethylene glycol is to the environment, but I bet sand would be more safe

Wonderful teaser - easy for someone growing up in the snow.

How about sticking those blocks under the tires, then driving out (what a novel idea).
