I'm pretty sure you could have and did back down the ledge without an issue. That was safer than trying to tug your jeep up and over that ledge.

Dan Wheeler is a very experienced trail leader and highly respected not just by me, but by every single member (and i stress MEMBER) of these boards. If he did not approve of something I am sure it was for good reason and it obviously was for good reason. So please stop whinning about your welded on tow hooks.

ok so why dont you put in more specific rules so dozers hooks are no good but if i bolt on a tow hook with a 1/4" grade 3 bolt its g2g and an oem tow hook has 2 bolts goin thru 2 pieces of sheet metal

I have seen oem XJ tow hooks. I've used them on some pretty hard pulls on my own rig too. I'm not seeing your point.

Here's a suggestion. Kick it down a notch. This isn't pirate. Tone of voice is sometimes hard to gage on the web so, keep that in mind when you're reading here on .


Now, I'm far from being a metal geek but, I've read in several different places that when you weld on a tow hook, it becomes more brittle than it was originally. This is the reason that welded hooks are considered dangerous and are not really looked upon as being a safe tow point. The only thing that is in question here is the hook being welded. The bumper itself looks more than adequate and appears to be mounted very well.
For the record, I did not do tech on this rig. I know who dozer is and did not run across him while doing tech.


The fact remains: has rules. We follow them.

ONe of them installed Brendans gears and front locker and one of which GAVE me a set of Shackle relocation brackets. If you don't want to wheel with people like that don't do it! GET THIS THREAD BACK ON TRACK for crying out loud.
your missing the whole point. Im not saying your not great guys. You cant expect people to follow rules that are not written down. Thats what im saying. not weld streangth vs bolts or anything. (even though i could go on)

Dozer, I have nothing against you. Its the other guy. You aren't being hateful about everything. You know what to do now so in the future there won't be a misunderstanding. It isn't specifically wrote down but apparently it needs to be. I can't do much about it but once someone who can chimes in we are pretty much stuck with it. They have been trying to get the bylaws all worked out so it may make it in there when they do get them straightened out.

Please go back and re-read your posts. Then ask yourself who sounds like the clueless ones. Insulting MEMBERS on these boards, especially a former President of the MWC does not bode well for you a USER of there forums.

If i had known you wanted someone to lay in the mud and play with a square driveshaft with ya dozer i am someone would have done so. How many people would you like to lay in the mud and watch you unbolt a driveshaft? the entire group? come on buddy seriously?

Dude, I wasn't there i don't know what happened. I was in the green group wheeling my Jeep that is a lot smaller than dozers and even though it wasn't as capable it was done correctly. If he can figure out a more secure way to mount them I'm sure they will let him wheel. I just have a hard time believing that nobody stopped to help him out.
