Jeep cherokee recovery
We were out at Allwheels when we met a guy in an XJ with a bad starter.
what started out as a bad starter turned into a bent/broken control arm and
They used the winch to hold the front axle in place controlling the broken
jeep's decend down big daddy. which is a long rocky (or stumpy) incline.
sorry im missing a tape that had more detail of the damage. but ill try to
what happened to the jeep from the begining.
he had a starter issue. so they were gonna give him a little tug to get him
going down the hill. unfortunatly i think he had it in 4 low then he tried
to start it.
so the force of the bump start broke the pass side upper control arm bolt
(at the axle). if fact we never found it! When that broke the ds upper
control arm bent and broke.
at this point the guy used his front winch to pull/hold his axle in place
while he rolled down the hill.
despite the fact chris offered to drive him to the hardware store and fix
it on the hill.
side note the jeep started when it broke, but i think he had to shut it
soooo with the axle in place he starts rolling down the hill again, thats
when the axle folded under and took the bumper and steering with it.
at that point chris pulled the jeep up on to the back of thier truck. he
had thier rear winch around the front axle so it pulled the axle into place
and the jeep could be rolled down the rest of the hill. they then led it
down the hill.
this is actually a 2 hour event but i had to cut it down to 10 minutes to
fit on youtube, all and all i was interesting to watch.
This is the first time i got to see Dave use thier truck as a tow truck. it
worked surprisingly well
