Don't knock it until you try it....
Letting a wench pull you out might be more fun

I thought this thread was going to be about you and your wife arguing about you getting a winch.

Wench's are good short term...then the bitching and moaning gets too annoying, so then dismiss the wench in favor of a winch.

#2 is a Winch.

I don't recall any beer wenches that looked like that when I was in Germany. At least not until the 5th liter. Arrgh!

ATTENTION JEEPERS:

Make sure you don't get a crappy cheap Chinese wench, pony up the bucks an get a good ol' American wench! You'll be glad you did as the quality of service is much better with the American.

I told my fiancee just the other day that I am beginning to make a new bumper to hold a new winch, 'cause she couldn't be the only wench in the Jeep!

(We camp every year at the Texas Renaissance Festival, and are getting married there this year...She answers to wench when I call it!)
