My vote would be... YES!

I've seen similar video's on other Forums, and they've all happened about the same way.

That's why they stress to have a Hook Point on the Front and Rear of the Jeep, so that a Recovery Strap isn't hooked to an axle, which results in what you just saw.

"THAT'S" gonna leave a mark!!!

Cheers!

Thanks!

Couldn't tell exactly from the video. I blew it up to 400x, and it just got blurry.

Hell of a thing to happen when you're out just wanting to have fun, huh?

Cheers!

lookls like his front right side tire was just burried enough that the mud didnt want to let it go, so the whole axle stayed there while the jeep moved

it was hooked to the frame but everyone involved were dumb-shits. that was a bad angle and that front tire was wayyyy too buried to be jerking like that. i bet right about the time they ripped it apart, getting a little dirty and digging that tire out didnt sound quite so bad

I wonder if they had been using a winch if they would have had more control over the pressure and not broken anything like that? i wonder if you had a good winch hooked to it if it would have moved it at all the way it was burried.

I would have pulled it out from behind. It would have came out the same way it went in and not such an agressive wall of dirt.

There is no frame on a Cherokee guys.. so not sure how they would have tied it to the frame other than using a small hook in a body drain hole.. Tire was too far down in mud..best thing would have been to use two tow trucks slowly pulling out front behind...

I'm sure that guy just learned his lesson, (the guy in the red Cherokee) his reaction was exactly the same as mine when the front end of my Cherokee went for a dive and stalled

I thought it was a pretty well known thing that cherokees are unibodies

Isn't that what wrangler guys bag on them for?

We're supposed to bag Cherokee guys for not having a frame? I only bag on people if my rig out performs theirs...or of course if something on theirs breaks

A guy from here did the same. His steering was in full lock when he tried to winch his XJ out of a hole.

Funny how a guy buys a tow strap, & instantly becomes a recovery expert!

Years of experience all rolled up in a neat little $20.00 package from Harbor freight!

I'm sure if there was someone in that vid who knew what to do, they were standing there with a nice big bucket of imaginary popcorn! Not saying one word about the right way yo do it.

Heh heh, this is gonna be cool!!!!!!

alright, i re-reviewed it. i think the best part is that the left rear tire is way up in the air - not due to an obstical, flexing, or any major articulation pushing the limits... it's up in the air because the nose is face-down in the mud! BROKEN!

that was cool and fun- at least from my perspective.
