    Wink Need, should, handy, and nice to haves...

    Now that another wheeling season is beginning, here are some old threads with links to some good deals, because going off-road doesn't have to cost a lot.

    Feel free to add to this collection, by posting up your finds.
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a tall lift, big mud tires, winch, and a light bar simply do not.
    Why buy a Wrangler if you don't take the top and doors off?

    OH NOES!!! the link in your linked thread (Hi Lift Jack basic usage) is 404!! (not found)... but Ryan has a vid posted on the Tubes...

    An alternate to the Hi-Lift (or Reese) brand jack base is to take 2 3/4" pieces of plywood, screw or bolt them together. Size roughly 1x2 up to 2x2. If you countersink the bolt heads a little into the wood, you can have them face up into the foot of the jack for additional foot grip.

    Also, (with some additional reinforcement) you can run some stringers from the sides of the board to the top of the jack to prevent it from tipping so much.

    Traction mats are useful and prices are coming down... not as sturdy as portable bridging ladders, but they can really help... (some folk have had creative ideas on substitutes) Good for when the ground is a shade too soft or a hole too deep...

    Ya, been trying to get Paul to fix that issue, as there is a lot of good information that is not accessible. I was hoping if he didn't have the time or ability, that he would delegate the matter to a talented member. Wanted to post it to see if it was just me, and show that there is still needs to use important threads again ;)

    Thanks Tyler :)
