But nice to see you caring about the integrity of your forums. Whats next, gonna go wheeling somewhere other than the mounds? You make us so proud..

Seriously

I didn't think it was about where you wheeled but more about the fact that you wheeled. In fact does any of that even matter?

I also didn't know that it made you cooler to build your own jeep. Again I thought it was about going wheeling. Did someone change this to www.glfabandwhereyouwheel.com ?

Not only do you make us proud but you also show us what hardcore is.

Along with that you have answered a PM that I have sent before...

Pulled a circle track car onto a trailer with a worm gear boat winch and triple pulley setup.....
Not recommended, my arms hurt for days.

Just to show though, it's all in the reduction.

I'm not worried about needing help, loading solo is easy enough. I just haven't used an ATV winch before for pulling.

Based on the valid responses, sounds like it should work out.

Its no different than all teh cj5s, CRXs, or toyotas I drag home by myself. LOL, scariest thing I loaded recently was my milling machine on a rolling stand, about 1500lbs. That was fun into a trailer by myself, as it was very topheavy.

This Jeep is a toy, easy enough to push up with a comealong. I just wasn't sure if I should bother to unlock the plow and put the hook back on the winch rope.

haggar you should be fine pulling a jeep, I pulled a 4k+ FJ40 cruiser onto a trailer with my elcheapo harbor freight portable, I'm sure a warn would be much better!
