The continuation of the previous post…
The only tree big enough to winch to nearby happened to be behind the Jeep, but I had no other options, so I tried it. I was really worried that since the tree was right next to the bank of the wash that all I would do is pull it over…but luckily it held! I managed to drag the front end of my Jeep around until my tires were on more solid ground in the bottom of the wash.
I was also worried about popping off my fender flare, but the winch rope managed to stay between the top of the bumper and the bottom of the fender flare until the Jeep spun around enough to clear the flare completely. It couldn’t have worked any better!
It does appear that I’m going to need to replace my winch rope after this angle pull, but that’s a small price to pay.
