A set of wire strainers & some fence wire ~ a poor mans winch. Have used them a couple of times to get the cars out when stuck in mud.
Every one knows a coat hanger is good for unlocking a locked car when the keys are in it.
Coat hanger wire is fine when you dont have hose clamps.
Good for when you dont have a safety chain for your trailer.
Their uses are endless !!
we call that bailing wire... farm fence wire down here means either chicken wire, or hog wire...

I'm too city to have heard of farm fence wire, but I do know what chicken coop fencing (wire) is.

I'm guessing MB did this on purpose to help reduce nose dive, and relied on the ABS to do the proportioning.

a nice long nail works too, and looks almost stock. Plus if you have the nail, you probably also have a hammer to bend it with on the back side



Im impressed vstech didn't scratch the finish on the wire, nice clean install
