This is what I did with mine. What with the motor, winch and bumper, I didn't want anymore weight in front. Also this gets it out of the way and keeps the weight lower (COG). It doesn't rain here a lot maybe 8" a year on average so I don't have to worry about clogging up the jack.
It's not about getting out of the Storm, but learning to dance in the rain.
When I die I am going to be buried with my Jeep, cause I haven't yet found a hole it can't get out of!!!!!
