Pulled a guy out with my winch for the first time

Wish I had brough my camera with me for this one. A guy in an early 80's Chevy pickup with 37" tires managed to get himself stuck in mud up to the bottom of his doors. Had to help him out so i hooked up my line to him and used my snatch block. Pulled him out like the winch wasn't even working hard. I'll bring the camera next time I swear, lol.

Warn M8000. I haven't had a chance to write up an install yet or post pics. I'll try to post some pics of the winch tomorrow.

That's pretty cool. I need to get a winch soon since my friends always get stuck.

I've used my XD9000i six times, but never to unstick myself. Back when I used a Hi-Lift as a winch I got stuck several times. Maybe I finally learned how to drive.

Nah - couldn't be that.

Aww would have been nice to see! But make sure you take it out next time when you have to pull out the H2....
