    Default Crazy winch recovery



    Can't really believe this video is legit, but don't see any obvious signs of special effects... Sure wouldn't want to use my Scrambler like that. Couldn't make a better commercial for Warn!

    Impressive vid / pull. Straight lined too (no force multiplier it seems). Description states two vehicles pulling

    Yea, I'm sure the full size PU is doing most of the work there, but it's not as impressive if you don't have wheels off the ground.
    Can't see what the chain (or maybe its a strap?) at the rear of the Jeep is anchored to but the driver must have been very confident it wouldn't let go.

    I can't believe they had someone in the Toyota while it was being pulled up.

    At the angle - might the Toyota have been oil starved with its motor running??? Isn't the oil pickup often at the rear / low portion of the oil pan?

    Idiots all around. Driver in the Toyo was an idiot. No power in the world coming out that vehicle was going to help him get up the hill in reverse.

    The entire group just standing around the cables while winching.

    Would have been better to use the vehicles as anchors for pullys.

    But all said and done, they got it done and that is what counts.

    Agreed - very impressive video, but there is a bunch of dangerous stuff going on there. At about 30 seconds in there are people standing between the Jeep and the Toyota. One guy is even standing on the rear of the Toyota. The winch isn't moving at that point, but there is still a lot of tension on the cable. A cable snap or the Jeep coming forward would be disaster.

    You can already see that the front of the Toyota is totaled, so this is really a salvage operation.
