    It's well worth it. So much fun and you get to get out and about and enjoy nature. We absolutely love it!


    (Did those pics work? I can't see them now )

    Wow. i just watched the vid.

    There's so many wrongs in so many places. I do ask the question of why would you drive through THAT in the first place. You can SEE how bad it is!

    But that diff just went PA-TING! i seriously would have just left it there. You would have broken and bent so much stuff, and probably the chassis, loading it up with that much force it would be a complete write-off anyway.

    But still. Wow. Surprised i haven't seen it on a 4wd forum yet!!!

    Thats what I meant mate when I said I couldn't underside why some people take the hardest root possible(I've seen cases like this many a time although the end result not as bad)

    Can't wait to get out there

    You would think that someone would get a shovel and clear some of the mud out of the way of the wheels?

    ...throw a 2x4 or some gravel/rocks under the tires to get a bit of traction....and then, pulling the truck straight towards what looks to be about an 80-degree embankment? I'm not an off-roadie kinda guy (prefer hiking and camping instead), but that just seems kinda....stupid, to me.

    Ah man, that's no way to treat a jeep. As a owner of a 96' cherokee classic, I'd never do that to mine. I don't off-road at all. The four whell does come in handy though.

    Slappy Asshats... all of them. A little judicisous us of a shovel and a jack would have saved that vehicle. Instead, it was beer, ignorance and a dumbass with a Ford F350 4WD diesel.

    Utter silliness...
