Ron, what about New Years Day? I could come there and bring my son while on leave before going to Afganistan on the 3rd. Maybe there is enough interest?? Just a thought, thanks!!!

What makes you think that you will never need to be pulled backwards? First item in wheeling is safety.

Just wrap a log chain around your rear diff. Use a padlock to keep it in place. Make sure to go around the rear springs as well this will give a little stretch like a snatch strap.

Ever know anyone personally who was killed by improper recovery rigging? I know 2. It's not funny.
