Got it started and drove it out of the snow bank.  I then parked it next to the house, don't trust it out by the road.

What did you do with your Jeep today!

Last midnight my son Matthew calls and said "Dad, you busy?, I'm a little stuck"

He was about 7 minutes from the house, he slid on a huge patch of ice and went down a snowy bank.

I could not tug him out so I anchored my rig to a tree using my 3" tug strap (no choice) and the two D-rings on my new rear bumper. We looped his tug strap through the front and rear windows of his XJ as a spotter rope. With three of his buddies holding on to the "spotter" strap to keep the all tires grounded, I successfully winched his stuck, skinny little butt out!

BTW, Matthew said he doesn't think my little Warn M8000 is a sissy winch any more.  8)
I'm not sure what to think about getting called out of a warm bed, at midnight on a cold winters eve to recover a bunch of teenagers.  >:(

Please, I think Matthew was being very thoughtful.  ;D

#1: He called you for help when he needed it. #2: Nobody got hurt. #3: He was only minutes from home, not like he was stuck on Crawler Ridge at RC! #4: You got to do a real test of your new winch. #5: Best of all... you got to recover an XJ with your Wrangler!  ;)

Rebuttal:

#1: The only time I can find him is when he needs me and his big brother he called first was no where to be found!

#2: I didn't kill him yet!

#3: I'm still gonna kill him!

#4: I could have done that on a warm summers afternoon.

#5: I agree, 4 buddies with 4 XJ's and a little wrangler saved the day.....well, the cold winters night!!!

Went to the junk yard to get another set of roof rack bars so I can mount my spare tire up top. And I found a set of 1" wheel spacers on the one shelf. So I left with those also. :D

With a twitch of his nose and wink if his eye Dad (Tuna) went from "zero" to "hero" with the pull of the cable. He got back into his sleigh and drove out of sight cursing the kid who disturbed his sleep late one night. As the kids stood in awe,,, saying to each other "Who was that rosy cheeked, jolly fella" all they could remember was the big red "W" that saved their b@!!s.


Merry Christmas, Love T. and P.
