I think the right front wheel was still stuck in the same place and the Powerstroke ripped the front suspension links right off and twisted the front axle of the Jeep!

That is why they make a thing called a winch. But judging by these yahoos, winches are too slow and don't show off their big trucks.... I've been off roading for over 30 years and never gotten my CJ5 stuck to a point where I needed another vehicle to get me out. A handyman jack, a come-a-long (and a winch later) took care of getting un-stuck. A guess a good question would be WHY were they in there? (after looking at the full video...) Good find Drew..

Ok, let's see.. Jacked up Cherokke (most lift kits are weak by nature) Over sized tires In a place that they show have never been (first rule in off roading.. When you get stuck in a 4x4, you are really STUCK) Without proper equipment (winch, boards and jacks) equals idiots and damaged equipment.. That's ok, it will buff out...

This so reminds me of the wreckers pulling SUV's out of the water on Catawba Island on Lake Erie after some idiot decided he had to drive out to his ice fishing hut on a 45* day. Never fails there is always one. Last year it was a black & gold Jeep Grand Cherokee...with the winch cable wrapped through the drivers window tied around the door post and out the back. With the front tow truck winch around a huge oak tree....."start draggin boys"

Redneck noobs. No wonder why we barely have places to legally wheel.

Aww Bill. Man, I have to take you wheeling. If you ever head up to New England, let me know. You are always more than welcome to ride along with me on a trail run.

Yeah, I don't like the politics here either. Thinking about heading to Moab in Oct. It depends on a few things. I had one set of braces last year and now my 14 yr old this year. I've never seen a Jeep stop in it's tracks so fast.

I didn't even get a chuckle from that.
