Pulled out a superduty today

Got to say, I am fairly impressed with how stong this thing is. My buddy with an 05 superduty 4 door buried himself in his back yard trying to turn around and didn't know when to quit. He had managed to go back and fwd enough to where the truck was just rutted in something rediculous. I went over and hooked up the tow strap to him and in 4wh, I managed to drag him completely out and back to the road without even grunting. I was just surprised since the SD weighs like 8k or something.

Hell no man, I was thinking that when I was draggin that thing out, I should have taken pics to post just for the entertainment factor but I didn't have my cam and it would have been pretty rude on my part to drive 15 miles to my house to take pics of his opps lol.

Cool deal.

I think it wouldve been appropriate to go get your camera though, since he was on his own private land.

We used my ranger many times to pull out cars, trucks, etc. We have a looping on ramp on the south side of columbus (for anybody that knows, 270 & 23). We had a call one day for a car deep off the road (about 350 feet down in the bowl). we sent the F550 with twin boom lines after it, and he got stuck. I was on scene in my ranger and ended up pulling the tow truck back to hard ground. Then, dropped it in 4l and went down in the bowl and brought the car up. Ranger 2, tow company, 0!

Yeah, unless you find a buried Kodiak or something, you are SOL lol.


I LOVE bigazz trucks, had several in the past but the only down fall is, they weigh soooo much that if you don't have some serious width to the tires, they sink like rocks in soft ground and he was rolling stockies. Never had a chance.
