I really have to pat myself on the back, twice. He was getting set up for a major yard sale. His garage was full of computer stuff, gun holsters, etc (he just sold two bench loads of reloading stuff). If I wasnt in such a hurry, I know I would have spent more $. And I got out of there as fast as I could:burnout:

Yes indeed!

The last time out my buddy's 35 inch boggers couldn't get him out of the mud hole at my Father's cabin. His 8k winch pulled him right out, pulled me out after him too. Made me realize just how crazy we can get with a winch.


For the most part, a good come-a-long will do fine for a Soob, but Rob's hatch and ones like it get to be quite a bit heavier than the average. That winch will be your new best friend.

When are we going to Evans?

Well, besides having to install the winch, I need to find out if my rear diff is toast:rolleyes: And I need to install fender flares, so I hopefully wont get ticketed by the Sheriff:mad:

Qman came over today, just had to show n' tell.
Described my prob with the Hatch, after looking at the winch.
Put it in gear and let out the clutch, it just sat there.
Now, I was going to do this, but havent had the minute to do it:rolleyes:
He looked underneath and chuckled.
What? I said.
Look under the car, he said.
I got out, the car still in gear and running (e-brake on).
The right rear is just churning away, digging up turf.
The left rear is stationary.




I had pulled the axle out after my last run:rolleyes:


Cant figure out why the tire turns but wont move car (even with e-brake off).

Prarie Ridge = Bonney Lake

South Prairie and Prairie Ridge are 2 different places.
The former is down in the "Valley" and about 3mi away.

Mounting is the easy part.
I need a beefier Alt and dual battery setup to make it run right;)
