My XJ to the rescue again.... (pics)

On my way home cruised through Wagon Wheel and what do I find.....



My personal rule in this situation is if you don't have a chain or strap then I ain't pullin. This guy had straps and chains so I helped him out. He didn't think I'd be able to but pulled it without a problem.

Nice job. Your Jeep looks great.


Give the Chevy guy credit, though... at least he was wheeling!

Eh, its the internet so I'm bound to get grief no matter what.

Growing up on the farm all we ever used was chain and I've pulled some pretty stuck things out with em without a problem. I've used chains in some pretty wicked ways logging and such too so I'm confident in them.

If it was my rig I'd break out my strap but not my rig, I'm not getting my straps out. And I looked over the chain first to make sure it wasn't some chincy crap one.

why wouldnt you use your own strap?

Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;

Cause if someone takes their rig through something like that without their own recovery gear they can sit and wait in my opinion. Its a very travelled spot with a golf course and country club with phones across the street so not like I'm stranding anyone. If it was out in the woods or something I would break out my gear.

Yeah, a 2wd blazer at that. Since this was all loose river rock which was underneath a fast moving flooder river 2 weeks ago, I figured I wouldn't get any traction but just put it in 4lo and creeped along.

what is wrong with using a chain?

sorry if that is a stupid question but I dont see the harm in it, not like he is slamming the cheby hard with it, just a little pull and a tug and he was out(well from the looks of it)

That's what I don't understand, why use their chain if they had straps ?

Chains + Straps with hooks make VERY ..... VERY dangerous projectiles when something fails.

There is a video around where a guy was recovering someone with a tow strap that had a hook on the end. The tow point failed, the hook flew, hit the tailgate, dented it really bad, flew through the rear windshield and broke the front windshield.

Now imagine if he had a passenger in the truck with him

I assume you made him go swimming to hook up? I'd offer a strap, but they can hook it up to their own junk in stuff like that.
