Say you had the winch you rig out of a hairy situation on the trail. When yo did this you only pulled 30' of cable out to use. When you get home, park about 30'+ away from a tree and rewinch in so that the line you pulled out is not rewound around the winch's drum but is now in tension.

Here's my thimble...I got it after my hook took a beating.





While you're at it get a synthetic line, lighter, safer and can be bought with a thimble installed.

Your spam had nothing to do with this thread whatsoever.

If you ever use the winch to pull someone out, you will want to place a blanket, jacket, etc over the winch cable midway between your Jeep and the other vehicle. If the cable snaps or comes loose, it will keep it from coming back and injuring someone or damaging your Jeep.

So what you are all saying is I need to pull a trailer with me to haul all these items when I hit the trails. I'm going to be so over prepared lol. You know us women, we overpack.

My strap came in today! My soft top did was well. Pretty bummed though. Box had a GIANT hole in it....but...it gets worse. I open the box to find all the hardware, all plastic anything has been opened! They sent me a used/returned soft top kit. This top was uber expensive to start and to be sent one in that condition...lets just say not happy at all. My next purchase is going to be new roll bar padding to compliment the top. I swear they better overnight me another top or give me a discount on new roll bar padding.

That sucks about the packaging.

As for carrying a snatch 'em, tree saver and a winch line "blanket", no trailer required. But, unless you need it, take the back seat out when you wheel, it gives you so much more room for gear.

Ps I have buddies that are way less mechanicql than you props to doin it yourself. KCJO

If you already have rollbar padding, but it has faded. You can spray it with Dupli-color Vinyl and Fabric paint. I used flat black and it looks good, there are pictures in my build thread.

Karma for not buying mine. Sorry had to. But I second the vinyl/carpet paint. Far cheaper and you can do whatever color you want. If you want to get super close, have duplicolor color match the top.

I've seen some get rid of their back seat all together...why is this? Do we all really drive alone that much? I need more friends who don't mind a rough ride.

Thanks! Hopeing it'll only get better. That reminds me, I haven't posted any recent pics with all my new toys & upgrades. I guess I'll do that after I install the soft top...whenever I get the new one but yes...I've done everything. My YouTube channel has all the videos of every project, even down to installing my grab handles lol. I promised I'd provide a step by step on everything so even that was uploaded.

So, I put the Jeep in neutral and let it pull the Jeep towards the tree as it is reeling in? You are explaining it just fine, I'm just wanting to make sure I'm not missing something. I appreciate the advice.

Yes. Put jeep in neutral (hopefully on the slightest incline), get out with the winch controller and reel the jeep in. While the line is reeling in, watch it spool on the drum and make sure it is evenly reeling in. If not, stop it and adjust.
