Yup, and I love it. I made a fairly difficult climb last time out with it that I tried without it last year and felt very sketchy to the point I backed out of it. Its crazy how effortlessly the cheap little harbor freight atv winch pulls that front down.

Tater salad has a way of getting into your head! It's definitely not a hill worth trashing your whole rig over, and the videos of people doing just that May have ruined that hill for me forever! And watching you walk it at idle with your eyes closed didn't help....

That's awesome....my front suspension definitely doesn't pitch like it used to.....so nice when a plan works out. Steep climbs are always gonna be sketchy but it certainly helps when your front end isn't unloading like a *****. There's still a couple tweaks I'd like to make to make it even more stable but I'd love to experience a suck-down winch.

Speaking of really nice, stable suspension setups, check out the PSC LJ @ 7:15--http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyocPD0tda4

Its sketchy though when you think if that teeny cable breaks your screwed. Hehe.

Love mine though.

Daddy long legs is probably my favorite TJ. It's super low even in person. You can see the front coil overs unloading on it also, but it just doesn't have that much effect due to the low cg. For it to only have a 20" belly on 40's is crazy but obviously it gets it done.

I try not to think about that! Actually I'm always ready to stab the clutch and go right back down!

That wasn't backdoor, but nice rig just the same. The owner of Poison spider is actually a pretty cool guy. 2 years ago during qualifying chatted with him at Chocolate thunder for about an hour.
This is backdoor





When climbs like this feel fairly easy and the nose doesn't feel light. Then your front end works relatively well and you have decent rear geometry

You didn't catch the scrolling note at the top in that video that said "this is not backdoor, stay tuned to the end of the video to see it go up backdoor"

Just watch the last 40 seconds or so.

I'd like to make it up backdoor one day. I figure about a 105" WB should do it

I crawled right up it after this photo....



And then took this photo....



Then I crawled back down and backed my Jeep up.

It's that dang nub that you catch with your L/R tire that just makes that thing nasty.

The last part was sweet, back door is kinda funny at times it fills in at the bottom.
My bud when he still had his little blue buggy could not make it, then one day the bottom was kinda filled in and it krawled up. Other times all the loose stuff is gone and it's a nasty hole. It's on my bucket list though. First time to the Hammers saw this Jeep on it 5 years ago. Been wanting to climb that thing ever since



One of the biggest reason my Jeep got built

Still love this video, he cheated with a winch cable on the front
