    I would say if you require a winch to do what you are doing. Its outside of your range to do.

    Just IMO

    :infantry:


    Now if you just happen to slide off the trail and need it once or something, then that is a different story.

    I wouldnt say so. It way more of responsible wheeling. I wheeled for a couple years without one and dispite rarely getting stuck i hated the fact i didnt have one because it makes recovering vehicles way harder. if you dont have one now your in the way of someone that does have one. i got mine last year and used it 1 time to pull my buddy backwards out of a mud hole that was deeper than he thought. Wouldnt have been able to do it with a tug. What trails you enjoy are selective. Some people like just cruising around on slightly harder than gravel roads. I personally like doing much more difficult rock crawling stuff.

    then you would have turned back in the first hour yesterday and missed the next 9hrs+ of fun with the rest of the group we were with.

    If you don't winch - you aren't playing hard, if you don't get trail damage - you aren't wheeling, but dirt road cruising :cool:

    I’m at the point now where it’s almost needed for every vehicle to have a winch. Thinking it would have been easier with the group I ran with. Also, can avoid damage or further damage. I could have avoided my encounter with my tree if I could have gotten winched from the side. Meh. It is what it is

    More responsible wheeling to winch for 9+ hours?

    We all have different idea's and likes :fistbump:


    I never said having a winch is a bad idea, just relying on it to do all the work is :anonymous:

    I'd rather go where my truck can get me into and out of then have a winch for when you make a mistake. I am learning what I can do before I get a winch, and it is a lot

    Hmmm...that was on the way in, feel like we would have noticed if it was leaking then. But I do see what you mean about the lot of steam lol

    Im not disagreeing that going down trails over your vehicles/driving capability is a bad idea
    Most of winching was done to the ill-equipped vehicles
    You can still do other types of recoveries even if you have a winch but it makes it much easier and safer having one than having to snatch around trees, turn a vehicle around on the trail or whatnot when ever a winch is needed.
    Why make a situation harder by not being properly equipped?

    I'd just like to add, that is why I did not attend. My Tacoma is in no way ready to wheel yet. When it is I'll join you guys and gals.
    Hopefully more media to come.
