these are amazong photos - glad to see a bunch of guys that use their rigs!!
A winch is REALLY nice to have, but the investment is steep once you factor in all the equipment (winch, bumper, recovery straps)....BUT it does allow you to go more places, esp as a solo truck.
yea i agree, alot of upfront cost. If you build your own stuff though it is alot cheaper but the winch itself is still pricey but worth it when your stuck in the middle of nowhere. Especially since we always go out on our own so there is no one else to pull us out
