Do you have Dual Range in that thing?

 

I would have thought it would do better than in that whinching video?

 

Pretty sweet pics though, I'd love to go to that event sometime.

this time before i use my bumper im gona finish weld everything and put the 4 bolts in the center section[extra body bracing ] and add diamond plate to it to match the front the bumper mounts up in 5 different places and uses 15 bolts to atatch it  if you notice i was still pulling hard even after it broke and besides braking things is half the fun fixing them when you get home and remebering how fun it was braking it is the other half of the fun

the bumper was never intended to hold up to that kind of use if it had been bolted up allthe way whos to say what would have happend if i used  one piece tubes i wouldent be able to get everything up as high as i did it will be stronger this time around but not as strong as if it where a 1 piece bee but how much can the car handle anywway as stupid as what i did was i did find the week link and am fixing it but next time ill be nicer to the car and use multiple atatchment points and spread the load and not jerk it so hard and most importantly think it through it was so easy to pull it down hill but it wasent nearly as much fun
