One question and a comment.
Was it drivable after they got it out.
Comment editorial in nature...sure to tick a few people off.
It's things like that that cause the government to close areas for off-roaders. I watched the vids a few times each and could not see a designated road. Which makes me believe he was in an area not for off road vehicles. We are stewards of the areas in which we off road. Abuses will only cause more closures.
With that said I do not know if that area is covered by any governmental agency so the above comment is an opinion.
Secondly, dude get some glasses cuz that was one big hole. Please don't tell me you couldn't see it. (not referring to anyone here...since it wasn't a jeep anyways)
