Last time I did Chimney Rock and got stuck in my winch didn't work I finally pulled it all apart and started addressing it. With further investigation found the ground cable completely corroded off of the winch so I'm posting this as a friendly reminder too frequently check your cables. You don't want to get caught with your pants down like I did.

Metal cable vs synthetic rope. A good case for rope.

Good advice. Also wise to cycle through your 4wd settings once a month or so to make sure everything works before you are in a spot where you need it and then discover something is jammed or stuck.

Oh, Duh.... I completely missed the GROUND word. My bad.

Sorry Rob, didn't mean to jack your thread.

I'm still an advocating for Rope though.

Yeah Jake that too is a common practice of mine. Especially a few days to a week before I have a run planned so I can maybe get the problem resolved.
