The outhouse was sinking, it wes leaning backwards quite a bit. That made it interesting to use, to say the least. We needed to pull it forward and shoru up the back of it.

I've read the pulling from the back is better than pulling from the front.

I've read its better to pull from the back, too. Something to do with the way the teeth are cut in the diffs or some such - they can take more stress going forward than in reverse. I use my JK to pull out old fence posts, stumps, etc. too from out property - makes a pretty nice farm tool. Just make sure whatever you are pulling doesn't launch into the JK and impale you!

The front hooks are for when you need to be pulled out. The rear hook is for pulling.

Some things more valuable than others.

Aren't the fronts a reverse cut high pinion? Standard cut gears are weaker in the front, but he's not pulling that much weight.

Iíve seen more that one thread where someone hooked up to pull from the front (I seem to remember the last time it was someone helping someone else get un-stuck in the snow), and then ďbamĒ. I donít really know what it takes to break it.

So is the issue with the gears in the transmission, transfer case or diffirentials?
Or all of the above?

Not the transmission - it doesn't care. I've read where some have killed their differential. I can't remember if the transfer case has "issues" too...

If you pull from the rear you'll be safer. If you have a winch you'll be the safest (Iíve tried to pull someone out with a strap - too lazy to use the winch, didn't work, switched to the winch - it was easy to pull them out).
