Kev buying a winch is just admitting to the fact that you know your gonna get stuck

That's why we don't have one

Well, you DO always have reverse. hahaha

On the other hand, if you DO have a winch, you try much more than you would without one.

I like to think of myself as a good samaritan. I use my winch on others rigs more than my own 3 to 1. Unless I am wheelin with Squazz, and then it jumps to 6 to 1. hehehehe In all fairness to Squazz, he does try things that the rest of our group woouldnt consider trying.

Congratulations on your promotion. Now you can buy more Jeep porn.

I got my TNT truss today also, but it's stuck in Detroit at the moment. Hehehe

Lu, do you have your steering upgraded? (edit) oh, I see that you did. I was going to say that you're going to need it if you get those 35s into some serious rocks.

Yeah I tested it out smashing a few rocks and only a few scratches. The stock setup would have completely folded

Try to take it easy smashing into rocks though. That's a tough piece of metal, but it CAN bend. As we saw on my rig. Unless of course yours is from Mr Blaine and is the heat treated one that bends and then snaps back into place.
