    Dig around as much as you can! get some dinamite and KABLAMMM [​IMG] hehe JK!
    Use your hitch pin, if you have the reciver type hitch.
    And stick with a strap, if you brak a chain flying hooks tend to be a bit deadly for you,helpers and your rig!!

    It's a drawtite class III. I think they should come out a little easier cause they're dead. I asked about the chains just to see what yall said, I already had a near miss(see attachment).

    LOL...funny story here...I thought I was going to be smart and use the winch on the front to pull up some stumps. I've never used it before, and thought it would be a good chance to get familar with it before I HAD to use it. Anyway, to make long stories short, it reeled in my Blazer. So I backed up, wedged some blocks in front of the front tires, and it reeled me in again! I now have lots of respect for Warn's 8274! After turning around and hooking up a chain to the hitch, the Blazer pulled up the stump with no problems.

    Even if you use a strap, please put something like a heavy blanket or sleeping bag on it to weigh it down in case it lets go and snaps back. Even a snatch strap can cause a serious headache (or worse) if it pops ya. Not to mention if it hits a window.
