Check out this great recovery story. I thought this bone head would need a helicopter for recovery but a local jeep group got it out.

Crazy risky rescue!

There was no way it would have made it down that spine

Kudos to them for helping, but this was not a great recovery. Too many people talking, people standing by a winch line and emotions way too high. Not taking shots, but this is NOT how its supposed to look or sound

I heard one guy say in the video ....

"Hey Fred, If they had just answered his question online of... will 35's fit without a lift ? .... we wouldn't be up here pulling on these stupid straps."

I used to live right there. Used to walk/run/bike on those trails. They are hardly wide enough for a bike let alone a 4 wheeler. The driver was foolish, but it makes for a great story.

The guy with the winch was almost as nuts as the guy in the Jeep that was being recovered. It could have ended badly for both of them.

I think people who use the word kudos, deserve what they get...and the folks in this video could remain un-plagued by all the experts here. :)
