Christmas Tree Hauling

Just thought I'd show you folks one way of carrying a Christmas tree home. It looks kinda janky but it was fun and I didn't have far to go and it's more secure than it looks. Oops! Forgot the photo.

it's not Christmas without a real tree!!

For what it's worth, I used the Wife's WJ to haul the tree.

Thats the biggest air freshener I've ever seen. No wonder you can't hang it from the mirror.

Looks like you just backed up to the tree and straped it on and took off, looks good to me!

Absolutely correct. Real trees are a must.

It probably would have been easier to put it on the roof but then it would not have looked so cool going down the road.

I was thinking of doing the same with a hitch mount rack. Good show.

Why did you do that instead of tying it on the roof?

It doesn't matter how you haul it, its just cooler when you do it with a jeep.

Woods453, I didn't put it on the roof because that's just the kinda guy I am. Let the Hummer drivers carry their trees on their roofs. As a Jeeper I take the less traveled roads so to speak. I also wave at JKs under certain conditions.

Rangluh I just noticed that deer sausage over your spare tire. You should've put a red clown nose on it and freaked out all the little kids who saw it. I can hear it now, "Mommy look, Rudolph's dead." "It's OK Sally, that Jeep can lead Santa's sleigh through anything."
