    Cool use of brakes to pivot the vehicles....I thought at first the tow truck had independent cutting brakes on the rear, but then they used the front locker with the rear disengaged and e-braked to do a cutting brake type of turn in both the jeep and tow truck. My transfer case mounted, oil soaked e-brake won't hold against gravity on a 1 degree slope - certainly not good for that. Cool feature though....

    Thanks for the video Jim, I really enjoyed this one. I've always been a fan of Trail Mater but even more so now seeing it put to work. I need to get my lockers rewired so I can do those sweet front digs too.
