    How would you do this?

    I need to get my car in the garage. It's impossible to push the damn thing with just 2 people now that I have the propeller shafts installed, even in neutral. It's uphill and the only option I have now is push it in with the truck with a tire between the bumpers, but that makes me fucking cringe I don't wanna bend anything. I can't pull it in because I need it in the garage. I'm too scared to work underneath it on the soft dirt in the driveway, I just don't trust that the jackstands are gonna keep stable on the soft ground.

    Truck and chain will get it much closer. After that, tie the chain to something like __ and then lift at the center like this /\ to give it momentum, then you should be able to push it.

    Make sure you have plenty of air in the tires and get some people to help. A car with low tires is much harder to push.

    As long as you arent completely weak a 3rd person should be more than enough to move the car. My driveway is slightly uphill and my brother and I can push a 3s up it with some effort. I'm only 5'9" 165 lbs. My brother is bigger at 6'3" 370. But the one day I only had my cousins here and they are both smaller than me and we moved it with ease.

    get it as close as you can with the truck and a tow strap. use a come-along chain anchored in the garage for the rest.

    need... more... power

    Push it. I had my dad and brother push me out of my yard to kick start the car when I accidentally shut the car off with a dead starter, it was also uphill.
