My right rear wheel bearing has gone bad and made lots of horrid noises before I got it into the garage, I'm trying to break the 36mm nut so I can get at everything, but so far, all I have broken is my 1/2" breaker bar, I guess 6' of extension pipe was a bit too much - busted the 1/2" square piece, banged my wife's shin and bent a lug bolt that I'll have to replace. Called a friend and he came over with his 3/4" drive set and broke the nut loose while I stood on the brakes with 4 X 4 and lockers. Any advanced advice for what I'm going to find, I'm done with it for the day and going to go play with the grand kids.

Just wanted to pass along my little project after not finding any ready made accessories for adding a rear winch. I always say a front winch is to get others out of trouble. A rear winch is to get me out of trouble. I had my local steel shop bend up a rear bracket and integrated it into the rear frame of the machine. I extended the rear hitch and utilized the existing rear pin with the new bracket. The bracket bolts to existing holes on each side of frame and is super strong. I bought a 3500lb winch from Harbor Freight that matches the OEM front winch in all respects except the labels. I added a second corded remote to the dash and extended the power leads to reach the rear with the control box mounted with the front one. Total project cost was $225.
I have just purchased a 07 3010 Mule. It has high hours at 1900 but has been well taken care of. It seems to run well but just a bit weak. Every now and then I hear a clinging sound that may be a ignition spark to ground but I can't seem to find it. It will not do it when I'm looking. Also the back plug is showing its rich. It is black in no time where the front is a lite brown.
I did find it had the wrong plugs so I changed them, but no help.
As I have just got this I was wondering what do I need to look at as far as simple mods or weak points.
Thanks for your help
