WARNING: Don't Use This Trail! We Could've Died.
Matt's Off Road Recovery
So I got a call to rescue a Lexus on a trail probably no one should drive on. It's too steep for a rescue.

    Yup, would love to see how it works out, just can’t keep wasting time with NLthrow’s BS

  • kingcat2004

    5 times I tried, gets to the first ad, plays the ad, locks up and won’t go back to the video, hit refresh, back to the beginning again, plays to the first ad again, repeat! Great channel, need to find another outlet, one that actually prioritizes the content over the ad and makes sure the content actually plays, NLthrow bean counters are wrecking what used to be great

  • kingcat2004

    Fuck NLthrow and their ads! Can’t even complete a damn video anymore

    I wonder how many more people have tried this road because of these videos, knowing Matt can rescue them if their truck isn't up to the job.

  • cumminsscout

    About 30 years ago I decided places like that were not for 4x4's and then bought a Trail 90 Honda. If shit goes really bad you can just step off.... Now I have a Rokon 2x2. I'm not interested in rolling end over end or side over side down a mountain in a 4x4!

    How steep of a grade does a hill/mountain have to be before you will not attempt it? And do you have a device that tells you the steepness/ grade of the hill?

    This wasn't clickbait. I was sweating watching this. This tow was sooooo sketchy. You guys are so brave including the guy in the Lexus-version Land Cruiser. If Matt was scared, you know this isn't exaggeration. You can tell in the video. Wow.

    At some point the value of a lost vehicle fails to outweigh the risk required to recover it... you can always build a new rig but you dont get a 2nd shot once you die on the job! That being said, you guys seem like well seasoned professionals _(Way more then other popular off-road recovery channels)_ so hats off to your skill and dedication to the job! What ever you get paid by these customers, i can tell you its NOT ENOUGH!!!!

    You guys need to buy a little kwad like a Diatone Taycan for filming instead of someone having to run with a camera. You could fly that thing from inside a vehicle. It would really be handy on really steep recoveries, like this one.

    You need an engine break, and a rear break only….. Not sure how possible that would be on an automatic, gas engine, but that would make that an even more expensive, and amazing vehicle!!

    The Reality In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.[69:1] The Reality! [69:2] What is the Reality ? [69:3] Ah, what will convey unto thee what the reality is! [69:4] (The tribes of) Thamud and A’ad disbelieved in the judgment to come. [69:5] As for Thamud, they were destroyed by the lightning. [69:6] And as for A’ad, they were destroyed by a fierce roaring wind, [69:7] Which He imposed on them for seven long nights and eight long days so that thou mightest have seen men lying overthrown, as they were hollow trunks of palm-trees. [69:8] Canst thou (O Muhammad) see any remnant of them ? [69:9] And Pharaoh and those before him, and the communities that were destroyed, brought error, [69:10] And they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, therefor did He grip them with a tightening grip. [69:11] Lo! when the waters rose, We carried you upon the ship [69:12] That We might make it a memorial for you, and that remembering ears (that heard the story) might remember. [69:13] And when the trumpet shall sound one blast [69:14] And the earth with the mountains shall be lifted up and crushed with one crash, [69:15] Then, on that day will the Event befall. [69:16] And the heaven will split asunder, for that day it will be frail. [69:17] And the angels will be on the sides thereof, and eight will uphold the Throne of thy Lord that day, above them. [69:18] On that day ye will be exposed; not a secret of you will be hidden. [69:19] Then, as for him who is given his record in his right hand, he will say: Take, read my book! [69:20] Surely I knew that I should have to meet my reckoning. [69:21] Then he will be in blissful state [69:22] In a high garden [69:23] Whereof the clusters are in easy reach. [69:24] (And it will be said unto those therein): Eat and drink at ease for that which ye sent on before you in past days. [69:25] But as for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say: Oh, would that I had not been given my book [69:26] And knew not what my reckoning! [69:27] Oh, would that it had been death! [69:28] My wealth hath not availed me, [69:29] My power hath gone from me. [69:30] (It will be said): Take him and fetter him [69:31] And then expose him to hell-fire [69:32] And then insert him in a chain whereof the length is seventy cubits. [69:33] Lo! He used not to believe in Allah the Tremendous, [69:34] And urged not on the feeding of the wretched. [69:35] Therefor hath he no lover here this day, [69:36] Nor any food save filth [69:37] Which none but sinners eat. [69:38] But nay! I swear by all that ye see [69:39] And all that ye see not [69:40] That it is indeed the speech of an illustrious messenger. [69:41] It is not poet’s speech - little is it that ye believe! [69:42] Nor diviner’s speech - little is it that ye remember! [69:43] It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. [69:44] And if he had invented false sayings concerning Us, [69:45] We assuredly had taken him by the right hand [69:46] And then severed his life-artery, [69:47] And not one of you could have held Us off from him. [69:48] And lo! it is a warrant unto those who ward off (evil). [69:49] And lo! We know that some among you will deny (it). [69:50] And lo! it is indeed an anguish for the disbelievers. [69:51] And lo! it is absolute truth. [69:52] So glorify the name of thy Tremendous Lord. ٣

    MAD SKILLS !!!! Or Matt SKILLZ The skill you constantly display never ceases to amaze me.

  • Maples01

    My last offroad adventure was on a mountain in Oneida TN, the Cumberland Mountains, I was coming down a washout, shale rock, by where a strip mine once was, it was very steep looked like a V-ditch, I was straddling it, just easing my way down when I hit a loose patch and slid, eventually resting my Suburban over on its side. I walked down to find I was not far from the gravel road into the park, tho no way I could have gotten the truck out, had to be opened by a dozier, yet was a wildlife conservation area, required getting a man who was friends with the wildlife agents of the region to convince them to let me extract it, they brought in a dozier, I had to supply an operator, who was then instructed to make the exit impossible for all who are dumb enough to get to where I was. Seems the park is open for the offroading enthusiasts, so long as they stay on the trails marked with signs, and off the ones with no trespassing, but there are those who remove all the no trespassing signs and go where they please, which was where I had ended up, I explained I saw no signs, the TWRA in about as nice a way as they could let me know it would be in my best interest if I don't return, see where I was, it carried a heavy fine with a prison sentence, it was a protected reserve, I had gone deep into the woods. I hadn't expected the grossly under powered 6.2 Diesel to perform as well as it did, I was just driving looking for a place that it would feel it had enough, several deep mud pits didn't bother it at all, only place I found to turn it around was the one that did it in.

    Every time I watch your recoveries I’m waiting for some hippy to drive past you in a Subaru, “Wow, man…”

  • Slider68

    That was a very steep trail but I don't see how the GX470 was really in need of recovery. I've got a GX470 myself and in low range, center diff locked and A-TRAC engaged, those are very capable vehicles. All it takes is a tiny bit of slippage on any tire and A-TRAC activates the ABS on that wheel, ensuring all 4 wheels are rotating at the same RPM. I've also got Detroit lockers front and rear on my K30 and they do work better than A-TRAC but with a bit of skill you can get the GX-470 to handle impressive terrain, especially when ground clearance isn't the issue (like the trail in the video).

  • KiwiPokerPlayer

    35 degrees is no joke. It doesn't translate in video at all but it feels like straight down hill. I'm curious though, was the Lexus guy too scared to back down? (No judgement, that's a scary decent even facing forwards). Was he stuck in a position where he couldn't turn around?

  • ka4172

    Before calling for an extraction, I probably would have taken the the road to the lower area to see where it went. Most roads have an exit although once I did require a D-6 dozer to pull me back up a very steep hill with loose dirt that dead ended. Now I hike ahead to see what the traction conditions are before committing to driving down an unknown trail.
