    Some trial and error here, owner stated the unicorn goes on the passenger side and use in the lowest gear. I set it up and it won't start into a log. I try it in reverse gear and it's a go. I'll need to set it up on the drivers side and re-evaluate. Will need to add a platform closer to the screw so the wood will track straight as it's screwed.

    I used mine in D2 to split a bit faster. The Stickler mounted driver side, it's the just the way the threads are cut. Since the cone gets wider, if a log is not at a good angle it can lift the vehicle off the jack stands. You can take a lot of the wobble out of the spin with sheet metal shims behind the mounting plate.
    I split a few cords with it. It was a pain every time to use it, take off the wheel, mount the screw, take it off, put the wheel back on. When the truck got knocked off the jack stands, I was done with it.

    My Jeep Grand Wagoneer has the same wheel bolt pattern but the axle flange sticks out too far for this too mount up. It's a shop rig so my plan was too use it.::-)

    Wow - that is kinda painful to watch. It took 59 seconds for the first split to happen.
