We had a great time last year hanging out together, wheeling, eating and drinking.

Registration is open and half the spots have already been filled.

See you there.

If budget allows, I hope to have a winch this year. I made it through last year without one, but would have been nice.

I'll make sure there's plenty Bourbon again. You did a good job rallying, and driving. I'll be looking for a winch and some necessary armor as well.

A winch and solid front bumper with recovery points is a great thing to have. Expensive but one of those should have items when 4 wheeling.

A great first step economical recovery point is to add jate rings to your truck. https://www.roversnorth.com/ProductD...e=0&eq=&key=it

That an good quality kinetic energy recovery rope. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...aking-strength

Plus 3/4inch shackles can be bought at marine stores.

Basic recover kit:
3 soft shackles, youy can wrap them around bumpers, frame rails, axles
2 3/4" D ring bow shackels
1 6" trees strap
2 30' tow straps
2 old copies of your favorite LR magazine for tying recovery straps together

And using Jate rings for recovery is dangerous as they are not designed for recovery, they are designed to anchor the truck down to a trailer or such, not a dynamic pull

There are two types of jate rings out there. One is the military forged ring. That's been used and proven for decades as a recovery ring.
The other is welded type that looks a bit like a leaf spring shackle bracket which shouldn't be used for recovery.

PS my truck has gone in for a little prepping. Seven 90's at the BDR in various stages of repair and updates...
