remove all fasteners, put truck in reverse, pick up speed, hit brakes hard. change direction and drive out from under it. :lildevil: ... just an idea.. otherwise you may need a fork truck or backhoe or sumsuch piece of equipment to lift it off the frame via chain or strap

get some lumber and your highlift together....jack up one corner after removing the fasteners and support it with wood bracing, then move to the same corner on the opposite side of the truck. once you have all 4 up highenough then you can drive out from under it. or you could jack up the truck some and brace the bed then lower the truck.

I've done this method many times using lumber and a bottle jack. Works fine, then drive out from under.

Best of luck,

Mike
