Some people bury their spare tire and use if for an anchor. The 2 that you can buy, that I know of, are the Pull-Pal and the Smittybuilt W.A.S.P. Here is a link where people from Sierra Expeditions test both of them. Testing Pull-Pal Alternative: Smittybilt W.A.S.P. (Winch Anchor Support Platform) - Expedition Portal)

Well, that is what I thought, until I checked the prices on a Pull-Pal. Also, for what it is worth, if you wheel with someone else, then you really don't need one.

I know what you mean. I used to have that problem, since I worked weekends and had weekdays off, when most people I know want to go on the weekends.

two axles, torch and sledge

You can take a torch, or other cutter, and sharpen an axle. Drive it in the ground at an angle away from the vehicle and use it. You can stage two of them in line for additional if needed. You can put them side by each and put a panel/board between, buried in front. Don't take up any real room and come in handy.

You can bridge them across something for an anchor, etc.

I always carried two of them but they have gotten lost in the last 5 years due to other distractions.

I have a Pull Pal and have used it a few times while I was teaching recovery classes. It works very well. It is on the heavy side and takes up room inside. It is a great tool that works very good. If you buy one I would sugest making a mount to hold it outside your Jeep, unless you have extra room inside. Just make sure you have it straped down really good while driving. It could really hurt someone if it bounces in the cabin area.
