Pulling Someone Out

If someone is stuck can i wrap the tow strap around my axle to pull them out, i've always done this and now for some reason i'm wondering if this is to much stress on my baby d44.

any autoparts store has tow hooks with clip usually for like 8 bucks, buy a couple for the rear and one for up front if u have some place to put it, never hurts to have mulitiple choices, sometimes different angle is the difference between pulling them into a tree or getting out clean

Don't see any problems with that at all just make sure you have as much slack as possible when you nail it you want to get the biggest jerk you can to get it out....


Seriously not a good idea you can mess up a lot of stuff doing it that way...

I do not have tow hooks and for some odd reason i figured the pumkin is strong enough to lift a vehicle with a jack it must be strong enough to pull a jeep. nothing hard core just a little tug,. i'll never do that again.

The axle is strong, its everything else attached under there that I would worry about.

I have heard of people doing it, but not something I would do.

I've done before.

It's not anywhere near ideal, but I've seen tow trucks do it, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

I pulled my friends ZJ out with my TJ. He didn't have hooks so we strapped his axle.

here is a pic actually

I know you can't see whats going on but you can at least see he has no bumper or anything back there

I really wouldn't trust the hardware attaching the axle to the frame for something like that. Sure the axle may handle it, but you have so many angles and links that were not designed to withstand a large force in the horizontal direction like that.
