    Last weekend a 60 goot tree fell over. Well I had to pull it out because I had the only 4WD. Well today I was doing some work on it and found out that the 3 running starts I took to move the damn tree snaped one side of my hitch and bent my left hitch hook.

    But I was balbe to pull a ford about 1 mile.

    My friends 1995 F-150's starter sh** the bed. So I puled him from the store where it broke down to his house.
    Thanks

    Thus why I say people that just use a running start are stupid(sorry but its true). Sure it can be needed but a straight simple pull is just a much better idea. If the tree was too large for that, I would have cut it up.
