Holy crap, I don't care who you are and what you drive, that is just plain messed up to have that happen.
WOW!! that sucks!! my first thought was to say something about "this is why I drive a CHEVY!!" but this is a thing to show your significant other the next time she's nagging you about "why do you need that dana 60 or why are always spending so much time under that truck of yours"
And I thought I hadseen some carnage before but NOTHING like that.
He shoulda kept the TTB in there it wouldve help up just fine
They should have tried pulling the Bronco out backwards so the front end wouldn't dig in like that. Thats too bad, that guy will have to replace EVERYTHING under the front of his bronco. Not to mention figure out the problem with the brakes.
You see this is why I drive a stick. To slow down, down shift and let off the gas. In 4lo you really slow down easily too. Stupid slush box...
F U R D
Actualy I have a stage two shift kit in my turbo 400 and it locks it into 1rst when I pull the shift lever into first, very cool for the off roading ya!!
the brakes wouldent work because the truck was trying to run away from those tailight lenses..
Anyone ever modified a trailer so it was capable of being taken up the trail to the broken rig?
you mean like with articulating axles and all? it wouldn't be safe to sit something on top of it and take it down the street...
this is a good idea, you might be on to something here!!
Heck, I'd just take the bobcat up, take the hood off, run a few straps to the frame, lift her up, and roll her down, problem solved!
The fact they're being dragged out by a towstrap behind a tow vehicle might be an issue...
No, just something with enough clearance to get you closer.
even though I dont have a trailer I thought about that too. you wouldnt need much, I think any sort of springs that would allow flex would be a bad idea but maybe a slightly larger tires would be cool. Maybe you could use some 19.5" light truck rims and tires. But then youll have a higher deck height and it will make it more difficult to get your rig on the trailer.
Kinda like the taller fifth wheels for hunting?
Shoulda towed it backerds. Taller tildeck trailer would be good. A carryall would be awesome.
holy ****, i run that trail all the time, and he definenetly didnt break at a bad spot, he could have went down a 45 degree slope for a mile into a lake on the other side, i have pics of "rowher flats" in my sig if anybodys interested
Something like this picture here. Either that or possibly modify a tow dolly with larger tires you could at least get it down the trail to the larger street trailer. Anything is better than dragging it.
