    Default This is how not to Recover a Vehicle

    Saw this posting on the Tacomaworld forum, though you guys would get a laugh out of it. This is a classic example of how not to recover a vehicle. So much went wrong here it's not even funny. Supposedly he slipped off some rocks and broke the passengers side u bolt.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/...-weird.543261/

    Here is his explanation to what happened.
    "What up guys,
    I wanted to see how fast I could become famous on social media. Lol. I know everyone is saying they’re saying that. Before are you guys jump to conclusion some of your right and some of you are way off. Going up a steep incline with rocks and dirt I guess I slipped off a rock braking the Ubolt of the passenger rear which turned my axle breaking my dry shaft and shock."

    A lot of people unfortunately. That’s one of the reasons insurance rates are so high!
    It's all gone.

    The best part is the truck was for sale as well.

    Hahaha!

    Not everyone knows how to extract a vehicle, so those that actually do should step in, unless you are trying to help an unteachable person that does not think they need coaching so simply does not listen, which a few of us have unfortunately seen many times before...
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)
