I know you hate pretty much everything I say but all that plus age-old basic advice is to simply not wheel alone. Too much can happen when you're alone in a remote area. With another Jeep you can winch to each other, use pull straps, spot for each other, go for parts, go for help, etc.
You mentioned earlier to me that you don't have the luxury of 50 other Jeeps being with you. First, I seldom have that many either but just one other Jeep would be a wise policy. I don't know about you but one of the soundest recommendations I was told when I first started going offroad was to never wheel alone. Just one friend in another Jeep when you're out in the boondocks can and often will save the day.
You're assuming that I am off-roading for the sake if off-roading. I have been a mountaineer for as long as there have been mountains. The entire reason that I own a Jeep is to get me out to spots that 33" tires weren't getting me to.
My motivation for getting out there that far is solitude
. I drove 3h15m on way yesterday to an area of the Cascades, because that is what it takes out here to get away from civilization and people. The places where my 33" tires would get me to are now overrun with young, dipshit tech yuppies.
I do not get stuck anywhere I go, but I can only take the risks that I feel my Jeep is up to. The issue that I have with you @Jerry Bransford
in this case is that you are talking out of your ass, assuming many things and copying and pasting your boilerplate stance on Hi-Lift jacks that aren't needed in your neck of the desert. You wheel for recreation and have different motivations than me, do realize that not everyone is you. I don't want to hear solutions looking for problems when my Hi-Lift already solves specific problems.
I'll ask you again to not hijack my threads.
