Recovered a lumber truck

I was at work the other day when a lumber truck showed up to deliver a framing package to a slab I had poured. The poor guy backed across the curb right where the city had made a water tap for the meter and had just filled it back in. He got stuck. I tried to pull him out with but his differential was sitting on the curb and the truck wouldn't budge. I was sitting there spinning all my tires on the concrete road (yeah, my brand new $1000 set of tires). All I was doing was sliding me and him sideways. So the guy raised his bed to pick the wheel up out of the whole and I used the backhoe to put some crusher dust under the tire. When he put the bed back down it was just enough to get the diff. off the curb and I was able to pull him out in 4-low.

I can't wait to get a Powerstroke myself, the Ranger can only do so much.

No offense but that probably wouldn't have happened with the Ranger.

Lol Oh I'm totally aware! Thats just another reason! Lol.

We have an old motorhome, built off of a Ford Econoline chassis. The brakes are froze. When I get my truck, guess who is going to drag that baby to the scrap yard.
