I've never needed 4 low I just wrap a 1/2 inch chain around the bush and hook it to a 35,000 LBS tow strap. Stick the shifter in low and go. I have a 6-speed though so that will make a difference.

Low range or hi - doesnt really matter - do be sure to use a strap between the stump chain and the truck. The strap will help make easy work of it. tighten the lead before hitting it hard. I've pulled many large pine and other stumps out with my truck - I myself used low and the 5R110 in D. Worked fine.

Try to put youre chain strap or rope about half way up the bush so you have leverage on youre side.
