    Na....i dont feel like I need one. Cause I'm probably never gonna use it. Although I do like the look of a winch up front. I like the stubby bumper. A winch ready bumper. And again. My issue out here in NJ. I'll probably never use it. I have my tow strap, a kinatic rope on its way. Just in case I could help a 2 Wheeler this winter. Either way. As much as I like the look. Not going to spend $ 500 on some thing I'll most likely never use. But....a very interesting post. I picked up a bunch of info. Thanks guys.

    Cool...ok. So how often to you wheel alone??? I guess when you feel you need some alone time??. But, you do "wheel" alone. Is that what we call it these days. "Wheeling alone". And not to....Ummm crush your....wheelin alone thoughts. How often do you have these thoughts???. Do you wish them upon others ?? Are you truly alone with your thoughts, and your....ummm... self.? Hey....just trying to learn. Lollll. And I did....:eek:. Yeah....i is all good. Lolll

    LOL!! I don't wheel "alone", but with my Wife. Generally, if we do that, we are just doing basic exploration.

    Trying to take a short cut that was flooded out, I had to winch pull 3 times through thick Texas gumbo mud before I was through it. So based on you wheeling style you may or may not need a winch.

    I like the snatch rope that you can jerk on.

    Rather than just jerking on it JKbob can use the sturdy snatch block to double his power. Safe when not over exerted.
