I don't even remember going over that one big rock. I went to school for photography and have a good camera and everything. It's I'm just never really thinking about taking a pic of what I'm doing. I'm not worried about getting over what's in front of me

Some more pics from the trip:

I nearly had the last climb on that rock, but the stock skid kept catching and the rear end would walk around. I'll be back up in a month or two after the tuck and axle swap is done, and plan to take it.

Good, I hope you can make it. Did I tell you my winch died the day after when I was respooling it? The brake assembly went. Covered under warranty so I am getting a new one. Hopefully go up late june early july after my jeep is done.

I read about your winch on Facebook. At least it happened at home and not on the trail.

No joke. Can you imagine it crapping out right after I lost the bead? I would have flipped. Tie rod, tire, and winch all down within 15 minutes.

Engo was very helpful, I am hoping you and marc never have issues like this.

Did you call engo directly or did you call who you got it from.

Good that it was taken care of so easily and quickly. Having little problems that ate solved that easily with a winch at the price point of engo wouldn't bother me. That's one of the reasons why I didn't buy a warn.

Exactly. They have a lifetime warranty on the mechanical on there winches. I take care of the electrical and they cover the guts. Fair to me.

Warn fanboys are another reason I didn't buy a warn lol. Also to get what I have from engo from warn would have been 3x the cost.

We can buy another whole winch and still be ahead money wise. I have no regrets. I have done a ton of pulls and hard ones at that. In other news I lost the 4 screw hole covers on the solenoid box while diagnosis the problem. Kinda pissed about that.
