Nathaniel told me once he had experience in winching techniques and he would walk me through it. ARB makes more than bumpers and a lot of their equipment is for vehicle recovery.

I can probably make it too. My new job is right around the corner from Stevinson.

Per Chris... Mile High Jeep Club has Thursday booked already.

I wanted to officially offer the Rising Sun 4WD Club, May 18th… which is a Friday. These seminars usually get started around 6:00 p.m. and typically go until 8:30 or 9:00… depending on the range of questions. As I mentioned on the phone, the participants will be treated to an insider’s look at the engineering and function of many of our products, with an objective comparison to many other brands. I will be disassembling an Air Locker, an Old Man Emu shock, a high-performance IPF driving light and other components and using them to educate and prepare the guests to make better buying decisions, regardless of which brands of products they are interested in.

Can we get enough attendance on a friday night to make this worth while for Chris? It sounds pretty fun.

That is the plan. Have a meeting in the afternoon some weekend day instead of wednesday to have basic spotting and recovery techniques. Need to figure out WHEN though.

The truck in the front is the recovery vehicle for 2 1/2, 5 and 10 ton trucks. Big winch. Empty spool has 60,000lbs of pull strength.
