Cool Jeep story

Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum but am LOVING it.

Anyway, I have a pretty cool Jeep story. I have a 97 TJ Sport I got in 2000 that's my baby. My parents have 25 acres of land in Southern Maryland and my dad has an industrial tractor he uses to take care of the land. I'm not sure the model or anything, but it's a good size International 2wd with huge tractor tires...filled with water/antifreeze to improve traction. It has a huge 4 cylinder diesel, front end loader, etc. It's HEAVY. Anyway, my dad was out doing some work one day when the tractor died. He needed to get it back to his shed to work on it, but didn't have any way of getting it there. So I pulled up behind it, shifted into 4-Lo and first gear, and let out the clutch. I was amazed at how little effort it took to push that tractor. Granted, it was farely level ground, but I was pushing several tons of steel, basically at idol. When we got the tractor back to the shed, I felt like getting out and beating my cheast in triumph! I have an aftermarket steel bumper and only ended up with a scratch or two, which I easily touched up.

Anyway, does anyone else have cool stories about the awesome might of their Jeep?

I'm down near the Renaissance Festival.

My boyfriend has family up in Pasadena though. I forget the name of the community, but it's one of the older water communities there.

Yeara ago I had an 83 CJ5 and a friend bought a early 70s Buick Electrica from this old farmer and this car was sitting out on the edge of his field with small trees and stumps all around. The tires were all flat and off the bead well I latched on to its front bumper and in 4 low drug it over stump and sapling and uneven ground over to the driveway where we could wench it up onto a trailer. I and everyone else was very impressed and it was a stock CJ.

I know, I wish I had taken pictures. But this was a while ago and I didn't have a decent camera at the time.

I was mudding in my XJ when I found a Suburban buried up to the doors in mud. They guy begged me to get him out, since we were on public property and he was off the trail.

I hooked up to his frame and warned him I wouldn't be responsible for any damages. All he could do is tell me to hurry up before the cops arrives.

I dropped into 4lo, slowly released the clutch, and pulled that monster out.

Leaving his exhaust system stuck in the mud.

Today I helped a large penske truck. He ran out of gas at the entrance of a gas station. I hooked up the comanche and put in 4lo and pulled it up to the pump. I was amazed it towed a loaded moving truck.

We stable a few BIG horses at our place, and every night the guy comes to get them to go do carriage rides downtown, and every night he’d get stuck in the snow with a 25ft horse trailer with 4 horses in it, he’s trying to pull up a slight hill in a newer f350, he always needs to be pulled out, so here I come with the Jeep and pull his butt out every night. I was definitely surprised with my jeeps power.
