He forgot to load test the tree first. :(
As they say, "That'll leave a mark".

I once lifted the front end of a Model A off the ground using an olive tree, but it was way lighter than the cab of a SuperDuty. And I was a dumb kid at the time. ;)

I thought about moving this to Off Topic, but it is "News".

Can you imagine if that had cut loose when he had his head under there? We'd be reading about it on the Darwin Awards page.

I still think that they should design a tilting front section for these trucks. You may still have a problem accessing things at the rear of the engine but the rest of it would be nice to be able to get to.

The last time that I looked under the hood of a 6.4 I just shut the hood and shook my head.
