    Default 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.
