I've never been off-roading.
I've no experience with these things.

That said, I can give my impressions of the video - just gut feelings and you guys can correct me where I get it wrong.

1: I cringed everytime they tried to 'tug' the Jeep. I just don't see how that could ever be the right answer.
2: I saw no point in going forward. The Jeep could have been hung up on a submerged log - or perhaps a Jeep from their previous expedition - whatever the case, going backwards at least you know the route is clear. I don't see where they even checked for obstacles.
3: I was baffled at the attempts to pull the Jeep sideways while the guy was riding on the side. I thought for sure he was going to get pinned beneath the Jeep in 2ft. of water.
4: The moment the tires on the tow vehicles began to spin I began to wonder about winches.
5: With so many vehicles I was perplexed as to why they'd only use one at a time.
6: I don't understand trying to drive through water without first getting a clue as to how deep it may be - especially in a gravel pit.

With water in the engine I should think the best thing to do would be to get a professional tow truck in there, get the Jeep on a flatbed and home where one could go about getting the engine cleaned up. It was painful to watch what should have been an afternoon of cleaning up the engine slowly being turned into what must have been thousands of dollars of damage.

Any ways, I'd like to see this video turned into a discussion of 'do' and 'do not do' so those of us who are new can learn from it.
Please share your expertise.
