When I discovered the spare axle shaft a friend had brought along for me wasn't configured for my TJ correctly, I had to finish the trail in 3wd after removing the busted axle shaft & u-joint. To prevent breaking the driver's side axleshaft due to the added stress of being in 3wd, I had to use the winch a lot to make it the rest of the way.
Be careful not to give it too much gas when your steering wheel is hard over.
