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.
How to winch a 4X4
As hunters, we rely on four-wheel drives to get us into the field ... and back. Even the best 4X4 can get stuck, though, and that's when you need to know how to rescue it using a winch and a recovery kit.
ARB has some of the best recovery gear in the business (not to mention all the rest of the gear for your 4X4). We hooked up with them to find out how to do a winch recovery when a 4X4 gets stuck.
The Premium ARB Recovery Kit we used contains all the items you need to make the most of your winch and get you out of a predicament, but ARB offers other options, including the ability to put together your own customised kit.

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.
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
