    I would suggest not using a tree and a truck to pull them apart. There is a lot of energy released when they do finally separate. Maybe a tree and a winch since that is more controlled, but be ready to dive below the windshield.

    What Tennmogger said AND packing blankets - one or two draped over the cable - would work great.

    Iím going to try a simple ratchet come-along shortly when I swap tires on my trailer.

    Iíll post pictures. Should work. Safety ropeís a GREAT idea.
