The final decision was made by a public vote and our winner was. . .


Epic Winchline Pull - Ryan McKee   While winter wheeling with a friend in New Hampshire’s White Mountains my Jeep broke through thick ice of a frozen-over river, requiring recovery from my buddy’s JKU. I took a moment to photograph him pulling the FlatLink at the end of his winch line towards the Grand Cherokee to pull me back safely. Thanks to Warn, Factor55, and Black Oak LED for making this a painless process despite the cold temps, fresh snow, and pitch black night!
