    Looks like an ARB strap. If you slow it down you can see the entire recovery point seperate from the bumper. Hell of a projectile!

    Sad that happened. Even sadder they were probably spectators that did not have a clue what was right or wrong and paid with their lives.

    Somebody posted that video on another thread somewhere on here, but this one is worse! The other video makes you laugh at their stupidity, but the guys probably lived. In this video, these two are definitely dead!

    Definitely makes you think about your recovery points! I think I've said it before on here- a recovery should be slow, and calculated. It's never good when someone has to rev it up and dump the clutch before an extraction

    That's a sad video to watch, but it's just the thing we need to see to remember to be safe out there.

    Recovery strap breaks killing two people

    Not me or anyone I know. It was on FB. Stay out of the kill zone and use weights on the cable.

    ITS GRAPHIC VIEW WITH CAUTION!

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.
