And the icing on the cake? We spent an hour trying to rescue this guy from his own stupidity. We failed.

It was still there when we left. The guy in the 2500 crew cab Dodge said "I'm pulling out when these guys leave (he was talking about us) because they're the only ones around here who act like they give a $h!t about their equipment, and I've got to haul mine home with this truck later."

lol.

Went by there today on a day trip to Pattys resturant. Now that I know where it is I'm going to go back!!! Looks like fun, stopped at the office and got a map and permit info and most importantly saved it in my GPS so next time I can drive right to it.

I don't think he could've Julie. It was a nice day weather wise, but it's almost time for the Jeep's winter hat.

Wanna come on over and run these trails?

Yeah. I've gone through the videos twice and deleted a bunch. I haven't started putting them together or editing yet. Maybe today.

Also, for the record, Chris' winch drug all three of out Jeeps several feet, and didn't move the Blazer. So we unhooked out Jeeps, and Chris relocated. Then we hooked a Dodge 2500 crew cab 4x4 with a Cummins to him as anchor. He drug it too, so then we hooked another Dodge, this one a 1500 4x4 to the 2500. He drug both of those trucks along behind him. It was rediclious.

That is very impressive. What kind of winch does he have?

I would really look that bad boy over for damage. A dead pull of 10k is enough to smoke most units.

Not to bad for a winch considered medium to light duty. Using a snatch block was the only way to go.

It is a Warn M6000. Warn Industries - Jeep, Truck & SUV Winches: M6000

For a small winch I was proud of it. We were realistic about the overall situation and were quick to decide that we definetly were not equiped for such a recovery. Maybe in the future we will be able to be of more help to stranded vehicals.

When I got home I gave it a quick once over and washed the mud off the cable. Before our next trip out I plan on unspooling the cable to inspect it from end to end, check the mounting hardware, and look over any other parts I can lay my eyes on. A jeepers equipment is only as good as the maintenance performed before the trip out.

100% agreed. That is plenty of winch for a jeep. I have a m8000 and if mine does as good as his m6000 I will be happy. Let me know if you need anything...it was my fault we stopped.

Warn M series are suppose to be made in the USA with mostly USA made parts. Good example of how well equipped stuff works. My ARB snatch block was good too.

The more I have thought about it I am glad you stopped. It gave me a chance to test the winch out in a real situation. Also, it has given me more
appreciation for your snatch block. I believe I am going to try to find me two of them to keep in the Jeep.
