I just bought a Tuf-Tug 5000 lb rated come-along from Northern Tool. Comes with it's own snatch block for dual line capability. Use with two 20 ft straps. Plenty of tree's in Wisconsin, but still might consider a Pull Pal anchor for Murphy's law situation. Reasonalbly priced and no shipping. Seems strong enough to get to a point where my Rubicon lockers will grab.

Ditto. And the cast iron 'loop' for attaching haul line at the top of the jack busted off winching my rig. Good for pulling fence posts, not something I would consider a dependable emergency extraction tool!

Hi, I resurected this thread to ask about the ground stake anchor used in this video? He's pulling a rolling weight. If pullig a dead weight (jeep), would two steaks probably hold in this type of ground? Hope so, would make a nice portable tree...

What do you need a winch for when you can just wrap the line around the axel & hit the gas?

My buddy uses his girlfriend instead of a high lift jack or winch! He just ties a big Mac to the end of a fishing pole!
