How to Keep Thievin' Bastards From Stealing Your 4x4 Winch (Well, at least deter theft)
A simple trick to make it hard for the casual thief to steal the winch off the front of your rig. It won't make your winch theft proof, but it will go a long way in making it so the casual thief won't do a quick smash-n-grab crime of opportunity.
Creating a fixed eye in your Amsteel Blue Winch Line
How to create a fixed eye in 3/8 Amsteel Blue. This is for trail repairs
when you have limited access to tools and materials. The process is the
same for any diameter Amsteel Blue other than different bury lengths. 5/16
would be 13", 3/8 would be 16", 7/16 would be 18.5". I have tested this
extensively using half of each suggested bury length in a locked brummel
and all have held while the failure occurs in the line. I would suggest
replacing the whipping with the lock stich, or performing a locked brummel
when you return from your trip.

Rough Country XJ Cherokee Winch Bumper "Install"
This high-tensile steel bumper gives Jeep XJ's a menacing look while
providing more tire clearance and better approach angles for flexing. With
it's durable carbon black coating, this stubby bumper will turn heads on
and off the highway. A recessed winch mount plate helps protect your winch
and line as it rests partially hidden behind the bumper, and allows you to
mount the winch fairlead on the outside for ease of use. Upgrade your XJ
Front Bumper with some eye-catching upgrades such as an optional light bar
with mounting brackets, or heavy-duty Stinger for a high-profile look. A
mountable set of D-rings is also available and can be used with either
How to Remove a Birfield Joint (The fast way) aka The Camo Method Toyota 4x4 Solid Axle
This is the fastest way to access a Birfield joint. This method removes
the knuckle as an entire assembly from the Toyota soild or live axle
(1979-1985 U.S. trucks). Because the knuckle can be removed an an entire
unit you don't lose any of your wheel bearing pre-load. This method works
great on the trail if you break a birfield and need to replace it.
If you're looking for bomb-proof replacement birfields, this is the only
place to go:

Portable Cradle WARN M8000 winch extraction on cradle solo wheeling example in 06 WK Jeep Limited
This is me at Wharton State Forest 4 wheeling by myself as usual. I never
showed me winching out in all my uploading videos, so I figured I would do
this. The mud was REALLY gripping the bottom of my Jeep and the front
tires were 100% in the air as I was high centered. the rear tires were
barely touching, but since I went into the mud and it was rutted where the
wheels were, the Jeep was hanging up hard. Anyhow, gives you an idea of
how to use a portable cradle with a receiver. I have a TON of gear with me
and I also can about rebuild a motor, so don't try this wheeling by
yourself unless you are really prepared to fix things, know how to fix
things, know survival skills and also have a lot of equipment. Trust me, I
have been stuck in 100 degree weather for a LONG time with no help trapped
between two trees and emerged sweaty and bloody after hours with a severely
damaged Jeep. It ended up being night time, so no videos or pics as I only
had my camera phone and the pics did not come out clearly at all. Anyhow,
my HEMI Jeep has full armor, 4" Superlift, Superchips controller, 33" tires
on AEV's and I wheel a lot. Yes, I tried rocking it and such too as it
looks deceptively easy as if I could get it out, but it was all wedged up
under the bottom something fierce. Gary
How to diagnose Toyota Timing Chain Rattle or Knock troubleshoot 22R 22RE 22RET
Every Toyota 22R series engine with the single row timing chain and plastic
timing guides (1983~ish - 1995) that I have ever purchased with over
100,000 miles on the engine has had a driver's side guide that was either
partially broken or just totally gone. To the untrained ear it sounds a
like the valves need adjusting, but in this video I'll show you how to
inspect, troubleshoot, and diagnose a broken driver's side timing guide.
It makes a great bargaining chip when you can show the seller that the
timing guide is broken and then inform them that it's an $800+ repair at a
shop. If you can fix it on your own it will only run you about $100 in
parts and a Saturday's worth of time.
