Barboots,
Do you get the feeling you are flogging a dead horse?

Ah well Bob... if one person gets something out of it, it was probably worth typing out.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: My first recovery didn't go so well

National boards are great but do your self a favor and join the Virtual Jeep Club - http://www.virtualjeepclub.com/. This is an Arizona jeep club that offers recovery help from both volunteer members as well as is monitored by several off-road towing companies. They have several services such as, high priority rescue, low priority rescue as well as "I'm wheeling alone, where you can be found"

You will probably get grief for wheeling a WK2 by the Wrangler elitists but it's far better than leaving your expensive rig in a wash during monsoon season.
