Sounds like you've already figured out your first modification...winch.

I would also recommend a hi-lift jack. If you had one you could jack the jeep up and put rocks/logs whatever under the tires to get traction and go over the branches. it can also double as a come along/winch. I also carry a hatchet for camping but I also don't wheel alone and I have a winch.

One trip a buddy got a 2.5" O.D. branch wedged up into his under carriage and busted his slave cylinder. Another guy there had one of these. We cut through it in a minute or two.

borrow a rechargeable sawzall and go up with 2 batteries. much quieter than a chainsaw wont get the tree hugger attention. get a 12" aggressive demo style blade.secret wheeling is great untill you get stuck. x2 on never wheel without a buddy.hope you don't get a long-term parking ticket.

they are 33" BFG AT, so I think at 10psi they will get much better grip once I clear a path.

I tried the hand chain saw, only could find one at Harbor Freight Tools. The handles weren't strong enough and kept popping off. Then the chain kept getting stuck. So I'm heading to Home Depot to get a chain saw.

I concur. Funny story, I lost my fiance's camera for about 10 months. I looked every where at my place and hers almost every other weekend. I finally found it in the pouch on the backside of my Sahara seats by accident. I had left it there after our last wheeling trip and forgot about it. She was a little miffed. Luckily I got the wheeling pics!

This cracked me up. I like how so many of us are so interested in this yet we'd all be too embarrassed to admit when we got stuck by posting.

Dude, go to Harbor Freight and buy their 48" tractor Jack, tow strap, short shovel and bow tree saw. You can get *anything* out with this stuff; it may just require some effort.

Later on get a winch. ( I run Warn but I'm curious about the Badlands or cheap quadratec line)

we all get stuck from time to time but this case is interesting because the OP violated one of the strictest laws of offroading: never wheel alone. What if he had flipped it and was trapped inside the jeep on this lonely hill? It's a scary thought and hopefully a good lesson learned by all who read this.
