we can wrap a winch line around your rear bumper in a pinch. the tj bumpers are pretty stout. i would think most of the time we could just pull you forward. your fine in my book

Remember, it's a two way street.
The recovery points are for pulling as well as being pulled.

If the person behind you gets stuck, would you then not be able to help him because you don't have a recovery point?



From the looks of this hitch, there may be an easy place to hook up some angle iron recovery points.




Remember, those without tow hooks have to find a place to wrap the chain.

We can always have him pull to the side, and have someone else back up and pull or someone pull from the front. Ive seen it done a couple times before so I could pull someone out.

Plus if someone's in there good, well need a bigger truck to get them out.(no offense to anyone with a stock Jeep).

I see what your saying though.

The back bumper won't hold up if you need to be pulled out of thick mud. Water or sugar sand not a problem, thick mud is a problem. Trust me on this one, I have first hand experience. lol. Pick up some hooks at Tractor Supply for about $7 each & some grade 8 bolts for a couple dollars and bolt them to the back frame.

Guys, how is Wharton in terms of water/mud. Will a stocker get through there ok, and what are the odds of getting water in the interior. Yeah, I know, it's a jeep, but also my daily driver! My apartment doesn't have a hose outside for me to wash it out!

this question has been answered in previous pages and Wharton threads. most trails have go arounds if its too bad, you can always turn around which hasnt been a problem for me and the group i've ran with.

my 89 XJ is my daily driver, and i've been in Wharton a few times, complete stock XJ with street tires. i got stuck once and its cause i didnt have 4x4 active. you'll be good as long as youre smart. i have not had an issue and if you keep going you shouldnt get water in.

Ive never had water in. If you dont feel comfortable doing something, its fine, take the go around. No one will laugh at you, we've all been there at one point.


Since the Rubicon is no longer the dd, I will be pushing it a little harder this trip.

The entrance is a big dirt/grass lot. It has a wooden fence around it and its right past atsion lake on the Right, if you are coming from the expressway.

Nothin to do with the mud racing mudboy posted. This is just a regular Wharton trail ride with mud and hills.
