        ooooooo

        that definitely left a mark! :o

        note to self - when pulling out a friends stuck truck - pull by the frame not the axle, and pull in a direction that gets it OUT of the mud - not in DEEPER!
        There's always something new to learn.

          I think they were pulling by the frame, not that Cherokees really have one...all that suspension bolts to some pretty thin sheet metal. Without getting into techniques of how they could have gotten it out, it's good to remember that the collective intelligence of a group can add up to that of one half-asleep individual :D.

            Why is it that people insist on pulling a stuck truck out from the direction they were going????

              I wish I could have seen the footage of when they actually got the Jeep out of the mud. That thing is busted up bad, and they STILL didn't have it pulled out.

                nice, the stuck wheel didn't even move. I'm impressed with the guy who's sitting within swing distance of the strap/cable/rope. People seem to think if they break it they won't get hurt; what they forget is that nice steel piece on the end of the rope will knock them silly if it snaps.

                Oh well, I think what you see there is the pre-Darwin award winners. I nominate the guy with the camera you see in the picture, and most certainly the guy on the tire who almost fell underneath the jeep on the 2nd to last pull.

                  Wish they showed what they were pulling it with. Sounded like a diesel truck.

                  Yeah if that chain broke someone was bound to get hurt bigtime. I like the guy in the dirt bike gear sitting on the ground directing traffic.

                  Classic stuff.

                      Haha, now that I'm home I got to watch it ;D All the funnier because I own one that looks just like that :P Now I know what "not" to do.

                        That looks suspiciously like upstate Pennsylvania. Some of the most obscene things happen on the old coal piles up there.

                            EGADS!!

                            x2 on the chain-whip-of-death....unfortunately, I've seen the aftermath, and it ain't pretty, boys...a guy I know damn near lost a leg due to that kind of stupidity.

                            Tow straps are your friend.

                            They violated the common-sense approach and pulled in the direction of the "stuck"....tsk, tsk.

                              I love it! Guy with nothing at stake giving directions without really paying attention, then after the damage is done, owner gets out and says: thats not good. Would have loved to him explaining to the wife how he needs to borrrow HER car to get to work ! Let me ad this also, they might as well pull it the direction that they did and tear it up because they would have just drove it back in . that's just they way half of us four wheel mud puppys are !
