    Matt says this is steep. There's always time for a home made cookie. Never seen that look on Matt's face. You guys sure know how to get em out. Amazing videos.

    Wonder if a brake caliper froze up with her laying on the brakes so long, and with it having a locker it just locks the whole front end up...

    I don't know if you will ever read this guys, but I gotta give it to you, I could feel the tension and sense of urgency you had on this recovery. I know you get paid for this but I could tell you knew you were rescuing her from a potentially life threatening situation. "Hero" comes to mind, but I know good people wont take that title, so on her behalf as well as myself, thank you for being good people.

    I don't get, your "pull first - winch later" strategy. The Jeep had a winch, so why not just block the wheels of the Moorvair with some rocks and then use the winch? This would be much more secure than relying on traction. In many of both yours and also other recovery videos, people start spinning the wheels of the pulling car. It might look good on camera, but the second a wheel spin, you know that traction is lost. So in my objective, the sure way would always be to make a firm foundation and the pull with the winch.

    8:35 if you don’t already have a channel dedicated to videos like this that show an extra long version that would be a very smart decision to try a bit there are a lot of people that would like to see the wrong version solely based off how you edit! I I found your videos last night and spent 3 1/2 hours by my campfire outback binge watching your content. keep up the good work

    I bet the reason that front end was bound up was because the gear in the front end wasn't meshing properly and was mis-aligned because of the torque that was put on everything and as it was backing down that the gear teeth went back into place freeing everything up.

    Genuine question, I'm no recovery expert... once Matt turned around and lined up with the holes he had dug for himself would it have been a little less sketchy to use the winch to back the jeep down in a more controlled way? That way it would've avoided the morrvair skidding along as well?

    I was wondering what those black things were attached to the roll bars above the back seat, but then I saw the kids holding on to them as you went over bumps and dips, they're "Oh Shit!" handles.

    Okay so you used a bull bar as a recovery point? Have you seen how thin those are? I guess I should not arm chair this but I would have used a tow point.

  • RonE

    You guys and gal are professionals. WOW. Great job.

  • Shaggydude

    Those 4 cylinder Wranglers, just don't have the power needed for serious off roading. I would never attempt that hill in a stick.

    Every time you go up there, the road is worse. The next worker who has to replace the aircraft lights on the towers is going to have a rotten day.

    Love the channel! Here is a suggestion that worked for me when I was in a similar situation... I was backing down a sand hill that I couldn't make it up. I lost my ability to steer in the soft sand, and the truck was getting more and more sideways and was about to roll. So I took it out of 4x4, put it in 1st gear (not reverse so it wouldn't roll backwards) and intentionally spun the back tires. As soon as the tires began to spin, gravity pulled the back of the vehicle straight because of the loss of traction in the rear. There was only 2 of us, and we wouldn't have been able to move the back of the truck by hand.

    I don't do any off roading....so... my qor uestion. Why can't they just back up down the hill? Is this not possible or is there some other reason? ...good god that looked scary...and I know cameras never truly capture hills and angles well.

  • OrbPlasmatic

    Now what the heck was going on with the front axle? Was that just locked up brakes? Impressive rescue as always.

  • DoubleTime

    Sketchy is an understatement, but look at the view

    At the bottom of that hill Matt should put a sign with his number and a reminder that conquering every hill sometimes just isn't required in life.

    Geeeezzzeeeeeeeee. Rescue of a Hottie on the far side of the Moon! Spectacular Morvair, Incredible planning and Remarkable Driving. All in a Day's work. Cookies too! Rock Crusher Thighs. A good thing!!!! Well done for getting that far and knowing when to quit. Chase her down Rudy. She knows 'lockers'. And she has a lovely friend. Sister? Good work Liz. Glad you are back. At least strap some Pool Noodles on that Centre Roll Bar. 4:08 How do the front wheels spin and the rears do not? You could sell those to the Military Matt. Looks like you have the Nugget damage repaired.


    Great video!

    Matt, Here is two cents from someone who is nothing like the driver you are: Getting the Jeep quickly down from the steepest part of the road to a more gentle slope the most direct manner is my vote (just back down all of the recoveries from the radio tower road)!

  • IamTomato

    Am I the only one wondering what was wrong with that front axle?

    Why don't they gate off this place and only for people who manage the towers 🤔 😕. I am not a big fan of blocking are restricting people, but someone is going to get hurt are killed. I just hope it's not on your team. That would be hard to live with? 😕 😐

    Matt, not sure if you will see this but this is my old TJ that I built up a few years ago. To provide some context why this axle seized up, I threw in a lunchbox locker and some other suspension upgrades to make it more trail worthy, this lunchbox locker had always given me trouble. My guess is that one of the pins broke inside of it and caused issues with the locker. I noticed the axle freed up while going down the hill, from my experience in this TJ, the spartan locker would not disengage unless the you pulled the transmission into reverse (I believe this is due to the transfer case getting stuck in 4WD). Anyways, its good to see the ole' TJ getting some use.
