I'm thinking you should get tow straps without hooks, and wear warmer clothing.

Well the jeep had no tow hooks and a looped tow strap wouldn't work on the hitch so we had to use one with hooks.

$50 is a small price to pay for an easy to use recovery point.

Looks like a good time.

1. Ranger needs some manual hubs (trust me)
2. Someone needs to tighten up their belt

You will learn soon enough to not post pictures here because everyone is an expert (ask them, its true).

While I agree with the strap comments, I would also add:

1) You need more ORU stickers, both of you.

2) Thank god you had fake beadlocks, I dont think you would have survived otherwise.

3) No excuse for no towpoints, ever. No, your "pushbar" is not a towpoint.

4) That would have been a flop, not a roll..... and an easy flop at that.

5) Mounds mud sucks. Mounds mud is the freezing cold winter sucks x23625. Your trucks hate you.

6) Your fat friend needs a belt.
