One of two different triangulated recoveries yesterday. Here the 90 didn't have a winch cable and the vehicle in front could not back up without rolling down the side of the mtn with wife, kids and grandpa in the truck. Pics never do these things justice but the truth is this little section was steep and greasy and everybody had to winch themselves up to dry land.

Hose clamps will work too, not elegant and may not withstand tremendous abuse but will keep the spring in most of the time.

Buncha pictures

Here are some I took. First one is the BMW powered Classic Rangie!

Then, Clay (green D90) with some egging on by Kraig, attempted a tricky spot and incurred a pucker factor of 1o - we winched

The last one shows our triple secured double snatch block work - handy work of Dave Short! - Worked really well to get about 6 trucks up that didn't have a winch.

After having the rear springs come out of the spring perch a couple of times on my RRC I bought some of the spring retainers from EE.... well worth the money in my opinion.
