Default How not to recover a j**p

The only thing done right in this recovery video was using a Toyota to try to get the j**p out. Seriously, this could be used as an instructional video on how NOT to attempt a recovery. So many things to comment on that could have been deadly. I love it when the guy is standing on the j**p's side steps while the truck is being yanked by another vehicle!

Not a new video but just came across it.

Video should be called "how to try to kill a jeep owner".

It's a little long, but it really could be used as a study guide for DO NOTs in recovery.

I mean...yanking with a tow strap and chain and the chain breaks! The chain should NEVER be used with a yank strap (if it was even a yank strap!) and the chain looked like it was about 1/8" thick. It was almost comical! The only thing the video was missing was "Hold my beer and watch this..."

For every great original, there must be a sequel...

"Fishing for coil springs"

At least they sped it up.

I think the guy in black was holding a bud.

Never underestimate a mudder's capability for stupidity.
