Pulled 1/2-ton Chevy and 30' TT out of ditch.

So, first off I wish I had pictures of this. I was out camping with my family this weekend and while we were around the camp fire we hear this loud crash. So my old man and myself run up a hill and see a way over loaded 1/2-ton chevy with a 30' travel trailer that took a corner a bit too sharp and ended up in the ditch. The travel trailer was buried up to it's frame in dirt but luckily there was no damage. Well, after we look at it for a while we decided forward was the only option as reverse would crush both his gray and black tanks. So I run down to my camp site and fire up my 08 F250 6.4 PSD. I hook up with my straps in 2-High and spin out, give it a bump and spin out again. That's when I knew he was in good. So I lock my hubs and set it to 4-Low, and wait for my old man to give me the thumbs up. This time I put the go pedal about 1/4 down nice and slow and it just rips him right out of the ditch, pulling his truck and trailer. The kicker was I was told that the chevy had spun himself into a hole where he had no traction, so when I pulled em out I apparently pulled out both his truck and his trailer. Good times! I got a few compliments from some buds that were chevy/gmc lovers on that pull! They all were conviced that a wrecker had to be called.

Anyhow, thought I would share. Love my truck!

Love it!! i pulled a huge, fancy motorcoach out of the sand once when he tried to turn around and backed off the pavement in the sand dunes, 4 wheel low on pavement, id imagine could pull just about anything out of any situation!
