    "I just can't believe that yoda was not stripped down to the frame after being there so long. Does this mean there is hope for the human race? Or is Mexico all filled up on yoda parts?"

    I think the key to that not happening was them essentially getting it off the trail within a week of the trail opening. Also, I think it helps that Red Cone is mostly known to wheelers and the Land Cruiser was after the first big steep hill that would scare average people away.

    I'm glad they got it home, and after all the speculation and fretting that it was an easy recovery.

    27 pages worth of yapping about it, really? I didn't think it was that much of a big deal.

    X2. At least they managed to get the rig off the trail and it wasn't too jacked up....or jacked....

    Wow that pic is every bit as incredible as this story! Can't believe all it needed was a new battery at that point...

    Reminds me of a really old episode of Top Gear (the british version) where they tried like heck to kill a diesel Toy pickup. Chained it down in the ocean for a day underwater, bunch of other ridiculous stuff. I think what finally killed it was parking it on top of a building that they subsequently imploded. I think it actually started after that, though. Yotas are hard to kill (believe me, I tried...)!
