    do you need a winch but the wife wont let you buy one? i was in your shoes but this is how i talked her into letting me buy one
    step 1: take wife and kids out 4x4ing
    step 2: go through mudputle(sp?) in 2 wheel drive no problem
    step 3: go to end of trail and turn around still in 2 wheel drive
    step 4: go through same mudputle and get sucked into deep ruts
    step 5: get out dig out the mud wall and lock hubs and put into 4 low
    step 6: no luck you are stuck
    step 7: spend one and a half hours trying to dig and use high lift to get out nope stile stuck did i meantion you need to be out in the bonies and 10 miles from the main road oh and forget comalong at home
    step 8: leave wife and kids with truck and start walking to get help and walk 8 and a half miles 2 and a half hours latter find someone with a 4x4 to pull you out.
    step 9: tell her see this is why I NEED A WINCH
    anyway that is my story on how i talked my wife into letting me buy a winch lol

    Hey Shannon, I guess no-one told you you shouldn't wheel alone huh?[​IMG] or did you do all this to convince your wife about the winch? [​IMG]

    Step 11) take her out again and get it high centered on a big mother of a rock in the middle of no-where. Preferably somewhere the winch won't be able to help you. Tell her its a ground clearance thing.....[​IMG]
    "But Honey, wouldn't you feel so much more secure if I had awesome ground clearance AND a winch???"

    Good luck, it sounds lame to me, maybe your wife will believe it....[​IMG]

    Yes Honey, I do see that.... I already figured that was next! But where are you gonna find mud like that around here? Maybe sand, yes I can see that, but mud, ugh! I don't want to be the one cleaning it afterwards! But I have already prepared myself for the addition, maybe the easter bunny will bring you a nice winch... never know......:)
