I have a question: If you are piloting a mega truck, wouldn’t you notice if one of the massive wheel and tire assemblies just quit being part of the program, up and left the scene, and just floated on in a mud pit, leaving you and your new tricycle to figure things out? Wouldn’t the immediate dip downwards be a clue? Or the sudden ceasing of forward motion? Having one of your major support structures just flop off and float away in the murky waters should be an event that has immediate impacts on the bit of mud-bogging that you are enjoying, but to the driver of this Jeep, everything is normal, nothing is wrong. The wheel falls off and he keeps right on truckin’. Maybe he thought his driver’s side front tire just found a deeper hole. Maybe he was just trying to power out of the pit on his own. But we hope that after the Jeep is towed out of the water, that at some point old boy grabbed something cold to drink and went floating for a bit. That seems like a proper ending to an otherwise bad day at the mud pit.
Take a shot at a caption for this video! Do you feel for the driver or do you think the Jeep won this battle?
