That is one and likely the worst. The second is moving your rig into a place or situation that isn't good for it. I once witnessed a gent pulling another hard stuck from down below him. All the weight was on the front axle and was pulling the rig over to the edge of a ledge that would not be good to go over. He was in park with the brakes on, popped it into reverse since the winch was overpowering the brakes and gently gave it some throttle to try and back away from the edge. He had stopped the winch, but the load was very high and as soon as the torque hit, it broke both front axles nearly simultaneously.One difference I can see between self-recovery with a winch vs winching another vehicle is the increased ability to drag the line over an object as the line is pulled in.
Turn your Jeep around so the sun is shining on the bumper, then take the pictures
You have a floor jack, right? Push it under the front axle at an angle, jack that bitch up and swing it around.You mean my Jeep that won’t start? Haha! Easier said than done. Took these right after it died in my driveway.
Sometimes they areI mean, fake internet points are worth it, right?
No kidding. If I had a damn error code to go by that would be a big step in the right direction.Chris, perfect time for you to boost your engine while it's not running anyway. Lol.
Good luck on getting it running. Nothing more frustrating than not knowing what to do and not knowing how to do it.
