LOL We could push/pull through anything... Maybe a train of 5 or 6 goin' thru the Sluice Box?
LOL.... Really though... please enlighten me.... I put this in the noobie forum so you wouldn't
so loudly over this retarded question... SKMB... Cheers...
Yes I read the search threads... to prevent a frontal roll over? WTF... That never worked that way on my 57....
They are great if you are climbing a very steep ledge and someone can attach a strap to it to help pull down your front end, also in a roll it can keep you from damaging your radiator, so that you have more of a chance of driving your truck home rather than not because your radiator got jacked. added lazy man bonus, after winching up a ledge and using a tow strap around a boulder or tree to anchor to and you know you are gonna need to winch a little farther down the trail again, you can leave winch line attached to strap and then loop strap around stinger, for ease of access later on down the trail, thus the lazy man use
