Damn, Tanktrap sure has changed since I used to run it in my 2.5" lifted 30" shod 89 SuperCab Ranger! I kid you not, 11-12 years ago it was labelled a single black diamond.

So with that much winching and breakage, did you ever consider winching yourself around and retreating?

Me, I've always preferred winching BACK over winching FORWARD...
