I was going to vote bacon... but it won't really help you on the trail as much as a winch would.

You could buy a LOT of bacon for what you would pay for a winch or a snorkel....


First... buy some Bacon

Second.... buy a winch

Third.... if you have any money left... buy some more bacon

i see it like this...

if you lone wolf it, get the winch. if youre in a group, get the snork cause some one in your group will most likely have a winch. if everyone has a snork and you have a winch, whatcha gonna do?

ive been leaning toward a winch, but after checking out some of the fjoa richloam pics, im kinda leaning towards a snork.

You need the winch first, however you will need some bacon to give you the energy to install the winch:D

You've had the Jeep this long and have managed the water without damage right? So I vote winch first, then snorkel.

Buy the winch and wrap it in bacon. Everything is better wrapped in bacon.

Did someone say BACON!!! Finally a poll I enjoy.










Winch... 'cause you can wrap a few slices around the motor and as it heats up it'll cook your bacon.

winch... with appropriate recovery gear.

I think snerkles are :shaking: and will never own one - but to each their own.

I don't think you would think that if you lived here in Florida where more than likely you will run into a VERY deep whole filled with water right smack dab in the middle of your trail.

And this is taking the shallow way through...

With all of this rain in Florida, I have seven flood cars at the shop and our Gables shop has double that!!
