truck came in handy
I was home this last weekend and my mom needed me to help finish centering a rock in front of our mailbox.
I guess my little brother and some friends got it there earlier in the week but it need some final tweaks. And she also wanted to put our street number on it.
this piece of rock easily topped 400 pounds (dont believe me? I dont care) Ive moved some heavy **** before and even when its heavy you can still at least push it on the ground, my brother and I couldnt move it together, of course he had 3 friends help him pick it up and put it on a trailer to get it to the mailbox in the first place.
Nonetheless, I thought of an EXCELLENT idea!
i had some tie down straps in my bed so I hooked two together wrapped them around the rock and my ball hitch, and gave it some gas while my brother stabilized the rock. BOOM! that did the trick, then we put the numbers on with some liquid nail.
gotta love trucks!

That's awesome! I know what it's like to drag those rocks around and they can be some heavy sob's.
Last year I built a big fire pit and dragged some large rocks uphill with my truck. I wish I had taken some pics or vids. I had also pulled down a large tree that had broken 20' up the same day. Anyways it's a blast to get out there and put the trucks and 4wd to the test.
Here is a pic of the tree and the rocks...
