Check out the Harken Hoist. I think it was roughly $130 including shipping.

Rotated my tires too. Either I'm getting older or the 33's are getting heavier.

Drove it for the first time in a week after coming back from a family trip this afternoon. Broke a toe on my left foot while on vacation which made the clutch a little tricky but after 10 mins behind the wheel I found a way to make it work that didn't hurt that bad.

I missed it terribly while I was away and a small amount of pain to drive it is worth it.

July-14-2012, Today I used my Jeep like a Tractor..... The wife wanted a Rhoadydenderian (I can't spell it.... ) bush dug out of her flower bed. I tried that with a "Canal Wrench" but it was way too much work in 80+*F heat ..
I got out a big assed chain and hooked it up to my Jeep and pulled that bush out by it's roots !! Saved myself from a Heart Attack !!
Jeeps are Lifesavers !!!! "BH"

It's simple so don't be scared. Plus, the back of the Jeep looks so much better after the stock third tail light has been cut off of the spare carrier.

Here is what I did to mine a while back.
