Re: Jeep (liberty) Recovery

thats pretty impressive! You would have thought the owner could have called a friend with a 4x4 to drag him back up to the trail (before the jeep was vandalized)

Since it was a 2WD Liberty, he didn't have any friends with real 4x4 Jeeps...

Re: Jeep (liberty) Recovery

Yet another vehicle out ALONE, beyond the sight of anyone. Don't do it, folks. At the very least, you look like a total tool. At worst... not good.

Re: Jeep (liberty) Recovery

Am I just a dweeb, or wouldn't it have made sense to call a buddy and borrow some wheels for the extraction? hell, 4 stockers at a bone yard would have only run $100.

Re: Jeep (liberty) Recovery

your just a dweeb Mike,

My gosh its just a liberty I would have torched it then claimed it on the ins as a theft ( plausable story seeing how all of the wheels were gone) before I would have paid for a helo extraction.

Re: Jeep (liberty) Recovery

Reminds me of the Xterra that we saw last time we were out in the Rubi in Red Rock. Someone drove it up into the middle of the trail on the top of the mountain, looks like they flipped it, then stripped the parts and torched it. It was a hot mess.
