My masterpull super yanker is about 10 years old and the veteran of many MARS et al. Still in great shape. I highly reccomend them.

I picked up the none that RN was selling there, I saw the same thing. I have preffered to winch myself, but for others it was time to go the kinetic strap route. Have not tried it yet. TJ the CB guy got my radio and antenna all worked out on Saturday too!

I was on the trail still during the auction (and I assume raffle since when opening my event bag last night I found a ticket stub )

So you are the one who outbid Doug on that. I got the 110 driveshafts, the golf bag, the RN front diff gaurd, and two AB gift certificates I just turned into a PS hose yesterday.

Jack,
As always really great pictures! I just checked your profile, but there's no website mentioned. Do you have somewhere where you'll be posting the rest of these?

I took 3b a couple of times but each time it was different and I'm not sure we ever took the "real" 3B. Looks like fun though.

You reminded me of this little recovery - the one time we said to heck with it and we stayed on 3 (took hours due to traffic and the holes) instead of taking 3B. I had mud past my elbow after reaching under the freelander to access it's recovery point.

The mud hole prior to the picture was a fun spot... I guess the freelander did not like it though.
