    Car pull


    Anyone have any ideas on a simple way to hook up a rope and harness to the front end of a 98 jeep Grand Cherokee? I'm pretty good with a welder so I have a few ideas floating around but figured id ask if anyone had any simpler approaches. Thanks guys I am all ears.

    I've just used one line, it was about 30' and 2 1/4" thick. I tied 2 bowline knots in each end and places those on the tow hooks in the front and that line was turned into a bridle. Then I ran a second line off the bridle to the harness

    I don't have tow hooks on the front end, stock bumper unfortunately. I'm going to locate the mounting points behind the bumper and fabricate something so I can do exactly what you just said. Thats one of the ideas I'm throwing around because I don't feel like throwing too much money at an off-road equipped bumper. Thanks Sean, I appreciate the response.

    no problem bud. I'll see if I have any pictures of it. you could always pull her backwards if you have anything on the rear bumper to hook onto

    my wife won't let me pull the car but I have had to deadlift the backend of a smart car. you could probably just go to a military surpluss store and get some tow straps
