the idea is that there is always someone in front of you, and you can get pulled out forward, in theory it works but not always the best option, if you have a rear tow point.

well I just asked for this day off, Ill be there with my 35's and hopefully have the winch installed.

So your not going to be there with this "jeep" that you haven't wheeled yet, instead your going to be downstate with Scott who also claims to have a "jeep" that we have only seen pics of? Do I have that right?

Wrong. Nose it into a bank, have a tree/rock in front of you, or you need to pull someone else. You shouldn't rely on being able to pull someone else in reverse.

There is no excuse for not having quality tow points front and rear on an off road rig. Period.

Like I said, in theory... I ran with just rear points for a while and now MiniBeast has pictures of me swimming to wrap frame... quality tow points are a must.

I'm debating about installing the hard top or just running the bikini top. I guess I'll see what the weather looks like.

I would suggest going with the hard top, and strip down to the bikini weather permitting.
Wind chills can be REALLY bad on the fun!

I think most people would consider you to be sick. At least those that have seen me in a bathing suit.

I know, most think I am sick, but what the hell we are all just in it for the fun!
You know the old saying, that your dog represents much of the same character as their owner!
I believe thats true to us wheelers and our rigs
So just a suggestion if the weather is good, take the top off ( just the top PLEASE)
