    That’s how they took away my parts truck. They used a flatbed with a winch hooked to the drive shaft. It will scratch up your drive way when they drag it up.

    I had that problem. I could not find anyone to come get the truck that I snagged the axles from. I ended up borrowing the same trailer that I used to get it home to take it to the junkyard. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    I had to back the trailer up under the front leafs and then I used a come-along to winch it up. I left my Burb in neutral and actually pulled the trailer and Burb underneath the stationary parts truck. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    rollback, but will leave scrapes from where its sitting and up to end of bed that its drug up onto, ive had a billion vehicles hauled away that ive removed frames or axles from, sometimes worse, i dont even worry about it
    when i go to remove a chassis or axles or suspensions i use two cherry pickers to lift body tub, i can get a suburban body up so high that the bototm of the body tub is at yuor head when youre standing.
    ive doen soem insane stuff out here when cutting up stuff, also ive taken and removed (or cut straight down in middle of arches) the front fenders and tubs and cut frame rails at judst behind upper shock ends and remove entire front chunk with suspension and drivetrain and all with a cherry picker, use another vehicle to jerk the body tub and rear 2/3 odf the chassis rearwards, those are the fun ones /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Put the truck on some railroad ties or wood blocks that will save the driveway /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Better yet set it on several round fence posts. then as they drag it take the ones that come out the back and put them back in front until it gets onto the flatbed. Just think how they built those piramid's in Egypt by dragging all the big stones around /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
