Best way to remove shrubs and stumps

This has been discussed several times with answers ranging from using a front loader or just backing up a truck and hooking up a chain and hitting the gas. I would like to know what most of you do when it comes to removing unwanted bushes. My preference is to cut the bush off and dig out the stump and using an ax to cut through roots to get the stump out. In my opinion its better to be safe than sorry.

If there small I can dig them out in a couple slices, or if there really dead or alot smaller then I just yank them out with a few good pulls. Now if I ever run into a larger one in the front yard of some place I might have to throw the jeep in low and have a go at it...
