FUN FUN!

I dont know if anyone that has a truck has had the fun of pulling stuff out of the ground. but this afternoon it was so nice, i went outside and started doing some yard work. getting all the leaves out of the yard and hammering the gutters back on the house (the nails were a bit loose) and then i thought it would be a good idea to pull one of the HUGE bushes I have by the front door out.

So i backed the truck up near it, straped it up by the roots and pulled down the driveway that was fun!!! clean up was a lol but it was fun to yank stuff out of the ground haha

Tomorrow i plan to pull the other bush out from the other side! should prob take some pictures

What kind of bushes? Are you getting enough roots out for them to live? I need something for my back yard!

Haha you're right, pulling stuff out of the ground is definately good fun. We pulled about 20-30 tree stumps out of my parent's backyard with my bronco last year, some were small some were pretty dang big. My mom has the pictures somewhere, I'll email her and ask her to track them down and send 'em my way.

Never have pulled stuff out of the ground, but watching people go 100ft up on trees and start sawing them and dropping huge pieces down to get rid of a big tree looks like alot of fun .

thats why you soak the ground with LOTS of water and make the soil soft, then yank... noob.. we use to pull stumps out of the ground with tractors when i was little and we would do the same thing and they would put up a good fight but still they would come out once you did a little running start.. but we used steel chains haha not rachet straps

fun fun........

I pulled out a Dodge Ram 1500 and a Chevy Silverado Z71 both at the same time on the beach once in Port Aransas. The Z71 got stuck trying to pull the Dodge out and I pulled them both out at the same time in my F150......that was summer before last I think.... good times.

its a wonder what a long chain and dry ground can do for you! ive pulled out tractors with the truck before but not claiming its the most powerful thing is the world, but a long chain and some traction does wonders

I was sitting in the same sand they were basically....wasn't like I could get out of it we were on the beach and it was all powdery at that time. I just let my tires all down to about 12-14 psi and put my truck in 4-low and just kinda crawled them out.

It's a wonder what a lifted truck sitting on a big tire that's aired down can do....
