I just bought some new toys ! The one is a new super flow air compressor. Which they has listed for $157 and the other is a smittybuild recovery kit. $105. The guy gave me some type of sweet discount. And I walked out paying only $161.53

The recovery kit has a choaker chain (can't think what I ever use a choaker chain for) a 17,000 lb snach block, gloves , and a 4" x 20' 30,000 lb "tree saver" they call it. But it's a darn tow strap. 20' tree saver come on !, and a 3/4" 10,000 lb D-ring.
So now I'm kinda ready for sundays run.

The chain is actually pretty useful. Mostly Jeeps and othere rigs with no recovery points. Wrap the chain around frame ect and pull. I use my tree saver strap for that fairly often. Pulled a grand cheroke out of a river by the front axle once. I know it's a big no-no to pull by the axles but unibodyframe no recovery points, 17year old kid with mom's truck crossing rivers and filled the motor with water. My pulling by the axle was the seast of his concerns.
Add a couple more d-ring and leather gloves, Got a Hi-lift? Those are good little compressors.

You can also add a "T" link to the choker which can be inserted into the "frame" of unibodies and other vehicles' standard frames. I used T links extensively when I was much younger and drove a tow truck for a living.

since Tim now has a 4 wheel drive truck, and the 40 appears to have a spun main bearing, the 40 is for sale on CL and MUD and will probably be parted out if it does not sell rather quickly...
