Winch or not
My friend winched me out of a mudhole that was about the as wide as my jeep blocked at one end by a cliff and a monsterous tree at the other end. we spent a good 45 minutes going back and fourth in this hole trying to get out of one of the sides but i just couldn't get the traction cause im not locked. Now im thinking about a winch cause i could probably get one pretty cheap 400-500. Should I? Is it cheating? I would get locked but i don't want to spend quite that much money and risk killing my stock axles. im pretty new to wheeling and i just don;t want to have to go get someonewith another more capable jeep evertime i go to my friends farm and slide around in the woods. Alo what size would i need will an 8k lb be enough to pull me aroudn or maybe a friends cherokee or (gag) Explorer?
