It was comical.
Yes they should have pulled his rear bumper off.
With two trucks side by side, one pulling each frame rail or similar, they may have gotten him out.
I even suggested they might consider jacking it up a bit, and slide the nearby pallets under the tires.
They were more proud they had brought the pallets out there the previous week...guess they were planning a bonfire in a residential area. Sure the Sheriffs and Fire Dept would enjoy that also.
