    Recovery strap breaks killing two people

    Good reason to stay out of harms way during a recovery.

    One it was a tow strap they were using as a snatch strap. Two it had a hook on the end. Three there is a whole lot of stupid in that video. Darwin did work.


    Disclaimer for those that haven't video: there is a dead body at the end of the video.

    Kind of surprised you don't see serious injuries or deaths more often.

    Ouch! We've all seen stupid people out on the trail. I always hide behind very large things on the trail. I've seen a couple winch lines break at work on tow trucks trying to get vehicles flipped over, off of railroad tracks and out of ditches. I'm always taking cover! Screw that

    Wow, Something to remember when pulling others out of a jam.
    Even though I drive my JEEP through the valley of the ROCKS, I fear no BREAKS, for WAYALIFE is with me; Your JEEP and Your WINCH, they comfort me.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
