    I commented about this on my build page but wanted more opinions on this bad ass tool. Because of my inexperience, AMD and Ma Mopar's tolerence's my right front fender fit a little tight. It needed about a half inch to fit correctly. Instead of hacking, cutting, re-welding the upper radiator support, I decided to buy a new tool and just move it out. Always wanted to play with one. What else can we do with these things? Worked awesome, and the fender fits fine now.

      I have one of those and love it.
      The first job I did with it was to reposition some bent bumper brackets, which it handled very well.
      I also used it to push a pillar back out on a car that got T boned.
      You can move pretty much anything if you have a backstop to push against.

        His looks exactly like the one I got from Harbor Freight.
        They work.

              Great tool for experienced tree cutters that are cutting a tree leaning the wrong way, too!

                    I have a cheapo porta power too. Should have sprung for the 10 ton.
                    Its a very handy tool.
                    That and a ratcheting load binder the truckers use. They pull really hard.

                        Load binders are very good, my all time favorite was a Wyeth-Scott & Co. Red Devil come along. Also known as the More Power Puller.

                              I think you could make room for a V12 if you're not careful!
