go to tractor supply and pick up 2 or 3 straps a come along, some snatch blocks some shackels and a hi lift and you can do just about anything.

Strap isnt bad, looks like i has a good rating. Good straps are pricey. That come a long is junk. I have on and it wont budge my truck when stuck off road


Your going to pay some $$$ for a good come a long

This would probably be a goog come along:

Allthough it looks seriously heavy! + it's a little pricy....

They can be found in 1, 2, 3, and 5 tons versions.

If you want a really good come along we sell these at my work. I bought one and have had not one bit of trouble with it. The nice thing is they even have a lifetime replacement if for so reason something does go wrong!! Heres my companys site http://www.hooverfence.com/tools/come-a-long.htm If we get enough people intrested in these I might be able to get my boss to give us a discount. Let me know if ur intrested, Chris
