STUCK!

Need a recovery... Jeep is done. Winch broke & Jeep is still stuck. Located near Andrews Air Force Base Maryland 20762. Had to leave it on the trail for the night. Going to be a long sleepless night. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good luck, happened to me 2 weeks ago and got lucky getting it out on my own. There should be a section on the forum dedicated to helping Jeeps in need.

Wow killed 2 winches, did the cables break? Get someone with a snatch block at double the cable up. I pulled a YJ and XJ together, the YJ tried to winch the XJ out and they both got stuck with a strap between them I couldnt move them at all without the snatch block. I hooked snatch on the YJ and back to my bumper and pulled them both out no problem, had the rear strapped to a tree of course.

Good luck

My neighbors winch melted @ the solenoid box. His cable is also coming apart. His brand new rear bumper I helped him install the night before got bent from supporting his Jeep to pull my Jeep. My winch just stopped working... Don't know what the issue is. It just clicks but doesn't work... It was a long day... More to come tomorrow.

It'll take a few rigs to get you out ...I'll check Tapatalk throughout the day tomorrow. If you have folks lined up to help and I can break away from work, I'll be there.
