    Thanks for sharing that link. Although I have not had to use it yet, I've got my Hi-Lift and Off Road Kit ready to pull me out of trouble. It's been used plenty for other stuff, though. Definitely worth the money!

    wow, thanks for posting that info. Even though Ive owned a highlift for years, I have never needed to use it as a winch so its cool to get a lil info on how that kinda thing is done. Im sure I coulda figured it out... but still, more knowledge/info is NEVER a bad thing. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif time to print this off and put it in my big notebook 'o' wheelin stuff. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I just picked up the 60" Hi-Lift jack, now I need to get some of the accessories that go with it. That is a good link, I've seen it before.

    For the accessories, visit that link. What I did is take my Off Road Kit and go out in the yard and test it out, before I needed to do it in the woods. Now I feel more confident that when need be, I can do that and have all of the equipment necessary.
