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.

It's a good feeling when you get to use your truck like that

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.
