Ranger vs. S10 stuck in neighbors yard

Neighbor was trying to pull a limb in a horrible storm that broke off on his tree. Standing water in the yard and his street tires plus 2wd S10 equals stuck. I try to pull him out with the Ranger. Didnt work. He buried it. Had to get my tractor.

Ranger 0 S10 stuck in neighbors yard cause he is a dumbass +1

Ranger vs Ford Fusion

Fusion 1, Ranger 0

Long story short, they drove there's home, I bent a tie rod and wheel, blew out a tire, and had to get a new fender and front bumper. Still have the door damage.
