Wow, haven't those idiots ever heard of a little invention called a SHOVEL?

With a little elbow grease and slightly higher brains to balls ratio they could have gotten that rig unstuck without any additional damage.

And last but not least, if you are pulling someone out, when was it EVER a good idea to try and solve problems by jerking instead of steady pulling? Wow. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

I have to wonder how that rig got dug in so badly though. It almost looks like the rig was stuck and then left there during rains and the mud flow started to eat it. I mean shoot, those guys are walking all over that muddy wash area like it's plenty firm, doesn't look like the rig would have gotten stuck in it that way just by driving over it. Looks like someone had to abandon the rig there for a while or something.

Kewlynx is right, if you fish around that area of youtube you can see them try to pull it from the rear and then the final tug up onto hard ground.
A simple shovel would have saved that rig for sure <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

but u have to admit it made a good vid on what not to do and they showed how unsafe it is to be next a vehicle being pulled hince the guy on the hill that slid down and could have got crushed when he almost pulled it over on its side.
better a dead vehicle than a dead wheeler <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

What cracks me up is this is only a fraction of the actual attempt to pull this jeep out of the mud. They yarded on this thing from the rear for a long time and it wouldn't budge. So they relocated to the frt end, at an angle mind you and all the while not one person offered to help dig a bit to free it up. No!! lets get out the vid cameras and film dumb a$$'s tear it apart.

Got'a love stupidity <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Last time i didn't use a shovel, ford f150 broken left axle yolk, or yoke, whatever, it was broke. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Friend had to bring his four wheel drive trackter, or tracktor, whatever, it was broke! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" />

Luckily I ran around with a few destructive dumb a$$'s back in the day who taught me through their own stupidity to wise up and not learn the hard way.
Vid camera's weren't around much back then or I'd post a couple of doozies for ya <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Yep, a little patience + swet can = a ton of $ saved for sure <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
