Well first you need to sober up, then you will realize your 90 isn't flopped on it's side but it is YOU that Flopped on your side.

Drive out of it, if you can. If you can't, there are 3 ways.

1. A group of guys to push it over
2. Depending on the situation, a Hi lift can work
3. Winch/pull

Driving out is the easiest, and coolest.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Done that before

Everytime i have done that. I place a chain or rope up as high as i can get Usually around the round baar that comes out of the frame the slider attaches to. Use a nother vehicle and pull it on to its wheels. No need to catch it let it fall right back down. I hand to do that this weekend out in the sand. It kind of sucked but did very little damage to the side it ended up on.

Be sure it's in gear with the brake set when you put it back on it's wheels.
