Whats up there, dude? I can't imagine your 3500 lb. Jeep having a hard time pulling on a 9000 lb. truck. How have you been lately? Hope everything is good. Sorry to hear about your D-shaft.

yeah the 3500 lbs jeep and the 9000lb truck didnt work out so well but i just dont get how i bent the yoke straps enought to break it. but i just ordered the new part and it will be here on friday so my original freakout session is over and now i am just trying to figure out how to fix the drivers rear shock...
but other then the jeep i am doing well and the jeep is doing ok.. but finals are starting and its time to study.

I have pulled out a fullsize nissan 4 door pickup truck, and a motorhome out of the sand. I even had to drag them out, about a mile or two. ah fun times. One guys wife even cryed cause they had been stuck for so long and no one else could pull them out.

I have not had a chance to pull anyone out with my Jeep yet but I did have a 87 nissan pathfinder 4x4 I used to pull everything with I pulled out several full size trucks with it I think the biggest thing I pulled with the enissan was a Ford F350 dulley loaded down with garbage I pulled him out of a big suger sand hole!
