Alright so I have some dumb questions to ask before I break things.
How should I use the rear locker? I've had people tell me to never spin the tires with the locker engaged and then others telling me that your supposed to use it in the mud. I'm not really sure how you would make it through some mud in low range. I thought that you would just get bogged down without the tires spinning out the mud but that's beside the point. It's a no brainer for rock crawling type stuff when your a tripod but when else should it be used and how can I avoid breaking things?
The other thing is how to do basic recoveries. I got a 16000 lbs recovery strap for Christmas should I beef up the front recovery points on the front of my truck or should they be okay? Then for the rear you can't use a hitch so I was going to buy a proper recovery hitch point. Hypothetically, if someone is stuck in the mud what should the recoverer be doing and what should the person being recovered be doing? Should the truck slowly pull or should they lightly jerk/ heavily jerk? What should the car being pulled do? I know every recovery will be different but just some general guide lines to follow so no one gets hurt would be really appreciated.
