SAR with my jeep.
had my first call for the season last night, coincidentally the first search with my TJ, and I love my jeep even more now. I was the only one in our group who showed up in anything but a pickup and one of 6 without an ATV, but more than once the bikes had to call me to go up a trail because they didn't have the ground clearance, and the pickups were all too large. my TJ out performed my old yj in every way up there and our commander told me it, (and its many many lights) were absolutely instrumental in the effort to find our 2 lost hunters. after several hours in the snow, dark and fog, we extracted the 2 young men alive and uninjured. bottom line I love my TJ, and will never buy anything but a jeep if I can help it for the rest of my days.

Glad everything ended on a good note. Make sure you stay safe for the rest of the season.

Working SAR is awesome! I volunteered years back in Yuma, AZ. Nothing like it. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome! I've done a ton of SAR in the USCG...
Glad everyone made it out.
X2 on always owning a JEEP!
