If your looking for another easy way to get that fuel can out of the bed of your pickup truck, I have found that having a shallow ditch next to my drive way can be very helpfull. I just back the truck so the rear wheels are in the ditch. That puts the tail gate just a few inches above my drive way. Easy way to load and unload something heavy into the bed of the truck.

If you get stuck, the ditch is wrong (and don't blame me)!
