Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

I got my tj about a month ago. Here was my first bonehead expensive learning experience...

I drove my TJ into deep snow in a neighbors yard..... got it stuck.....

attached my tow strap to the rear recovery bumper....


attached that to the frame hole of my chrysler aspen....


pulled the jeep out...AND CRACKED/SPLIT/SMASHED MY REAR BUMPER on the aspen when the tow strap tightened.

WHY OH WHY DIDNT CHRYSLER PUT A TOW HOOK ON A 9000 POUND SUV?????

DOH!!!!!

You should trade the Aspen in for a 4 door wrangler. Problem fixed.

I know, I know but I thought maybe the Aspen was the family hauler and the extra doors would come in handy.
