I would look to hook chains or straps to both chassis rails to pull out if it is sunk in. Hooking to one cross member can cause that cross member to bend and pull the rails in if stuck solid.

Thank you sir. Im just scared to mess up my leaf springs lasttime i tried they were stressed you could sse it. But guess that means i need to dive into suspension also huh? Should i use a come along hooked up to my 72 gmc rv ( travcos gmc counterpart) or use my 1 ton chevvvy?

You need to hook to something as heavy or heavier than the Travco as anything lighter may just drag across the ground when trying to pull
