I'm skipping the wench and going with a Wyeth-Scott More Power Puller

But that future bacon is making me hungry and I see you have social distanced the picnic tables. Love the Fusion FJ!
I completely understand. Since I put my winch on my fj at the beginning of the year I have yet had to use it to recover myself or anyone really at this point but I've used it to undress a deer, a hog. Pulled some trees up. Pulled a buddies boat trailer straight when he got into a jam trying to get back out of my fenced in back yard. Bulled another buddy's front bumper back straight after he got hit by a car so he could drive home.
This is my fifth year with a Warn. Winched myself out of the snow three times (not all the same year). Once freezing and near sunset. I've winched strangers out twice. Never on a bright nice sunny day and we were alone each time.
Going with a group is very comforting you don't have to worry about finding something to attach to.
Some day I will replace the front bumper with an integrated winch and all the trimmings. Being handy and having fun are worth the added upgrades to wheels, suspension, lighting, at alii. That's all if I don't get a Prius or Cruze instead. I suspect it's about the same cost, all in.
