Only picture I got of my situation last night. Was the nastiest mud I've ever seen. It was probably 300 yards of this crap. It acts like quick sand. Had to use the winch to get my boots out, lost my socks, said a lot of cuss words....

That new LED I put up front didn't like getting used as a fairlead. When I had to go over the roof to winch off the tree behind me it took all of the stress when the tin can bumper bar started to bend. Stripped the threads out but looks like I'll be able to salvage it with some longer bolts. It was perfect out on the trails so even if I can't salvage it I'd get another.

Roof still looks new, that plastic is amazing. I can also attest to the amsteel blue rope and my cheap HF Badlands winch. It's not the fastest but I ran that damn thing off and on for almost 4 hours and it got me out of some nasty stuff!

Want to thank all the guys that put together the part numbers and how-to's for the trail-side tierod repair (@lee , @JACKAL , and others I'm forgetting I'm sure) . We were able to get him back up and running in about 45 minutes from start to finish with neither of us having ever changed one. Happened right after we got off Dragon's Back.

Here's a quick picture that Jackal posted a year or so ago that has all the part numbers for those following along at home:
