wonder if there's an elegant way to remove them with the winch?

That is a good idea. I always seem to beat them out.

Yes, but I think it ends with the picket in the front window.

Good reason to carry a hi-lift jack.

[QUOTE=neatocj;11889668]a big big fat girl... but I mean immense!

wouldn't this option require that you not wheel alone?!? as she needs a way to get out there well i guess she can keep your buddy's jeep from moving while you anchor to him!

We had a guy from a local 4x4 shop demo a Pull Pal at our hunting club maybe 4 or 5 years ago, it worked well. Was able to pull a pretty heavy Ram CTD off a sand bar at the river. If it could hold with that vehicle it should be a snap for any Jeep product...

I've heard of some people using a large chunk of chain with rebar driven through the links at an angle, but I've never tried it.

When I got my Pull-Pal, I used it once to become familiar with it. Simple and effective. I've buried my spare tire, simple, effective and labor intensive, but that was 30+ years ago. And I still use my Hi-Lift jack to this day to change a flat or stuff rocks in a hole. There is a lot about wheeling alone that I like, although self preservation is higher on the list. Ergo the 12 ga. & 9mm hollow points. Think smart & be alert.

Wheel-n alone just isn't a good idea... A few months ago, I was leading a group down a steep incline, about half way down the trail makes a very sharp left turn (WTF?), anyway, the turn itself wasn't the problem, it was a washed out hole in the turn that was... my left front tire fell into this hole, and my right rear came about 3 foot in the air. At that moment, moving my body made the Jeep move, no way for me to safely even get out of the Jeep much less do anything to keep it from going over the hill. If I had been wheel-n alone, I guess sooner or later, someone would have found my body.

I think a Danforth-style marine anchor would work really well. Good strength-to-weight ratio, bulky, but you could keep it on a roof rack.

You can bury the end into the sand and then have a monster from the movie "TREMORS" bite down on it and sliver and bury in the opposite direction. I am only kidding, you can either get a pully system..no no no no no no no no no no no no no, wait.... oh yeah have one of your friends go with you.. No really I am only playing... if all else fails you can get a REEEEAAAAALLLLLYYYY LOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGG cable that will reach a tree of some sort.... OR you can just take a heavy duty 4-5 foot stake and hammer it down at a 45 degree angle away from you and hook the end to the bottom and that should work.. Plus if you have a hammer then it might only cost you about 10-20 dollars for a heavy duty stake... I hope the end state helps you at all... God bless,
joe

What a bout a couple mobile home tie downs? Screw them in the ground and unscrew when done. Not bulky relatively easy to store. Just a thought

I'm picturing metal stakes in the ground with all that tension on the line. If they were to suddenly let go, someone could get an eye put out.

But I guess if you are alone, coming home with one eye is better than not coming home at all.

I prefer the second, third, or more Jeep option.
