    most of the time, all you need is a tug.

    Sometimes, you just need a nice smooth continual pull. That North Carolina Clay sure is slippery when wet!!!!!!

    Winched up the whole hill with my buddy's truck hooked up to the tail with a strap. There's never a tree ahead when you need one.

    I've used a Hi-Lift jack and a chain to get a truck out of a snow drift before. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif It was slow as hell, but it sure beat spending the night in the mountains! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
