Default Tow hooks

This is why tow hooks are better to use then just attaching to the differential..

Ha! tooooo funny, people don't think.

Is that what they call the Jeep Experience? Couldn't resist Rags!

Anyways did anyone catch the guy 1 minute in standing next to the toe strap as they were pulling? Whole thing was comedy of errors but that could have been a major non-comedy error...next time get a shovel...

I saw a few times there where common sense was not evident. Lucky some one wasn't hurt.

They had multiple tow straps and chains tied together. Not good.

"Get a bite right here at the edge."

And they kept trying.

"That one jerk."

I think it was hooked to the frame by the way the right wheel ended up under the truck. If they would have shoveled out the 2' of dirt in front of the right tire it would have been OK. The strap thing is really not cool.
