Even though it was successfully rescued, this Jeep Wrangler was also badly damaged and it is unlikely that it can be restored to its original state.
Off-road driving is a hobby for many people, but sometimes this hobby puts them in a difficult situation and needs the help of people like the YouTube channel “Matt’s Off-Road Recovery”. In a newly posted video, this off-road vehicle rescue YouTuber showed the process of rescuing a $100,000 Jeep Wrangler that was flooded and stalled in a river. In fact, they had to use 4 cars to save the Jeep, and things were not easy when the rescue location was miles away from the asphalt.
To complete the rescue mission this time, the “Matt’s Off-Road Recovery” team had extra help from two other experienced off-road vehicle rescue experts because the Jeep Wrangler was in a very difficult situation. handle. Not only was the water submerged up to the level of the bonnet, but the tires were also submerged in the mud and the mud made it difficult for the wheels to operate. And yet, once they had overcome those challenges, they still had the problem of pulling the completely stalled Wrangler through miles of trails, hills, and rocks.
As for the red Jeep Wrangler, it’s a full version rather than a standard car, although we don’t know what the custom equipment is. The video says it is a $ 100,000 all-terrain machine, but it seems that a snorkel to handle deep water is not among the upgraded equipment. Even if the snorkel can’t help the Wrangler escape, it can at least help the car to operate when pulled out of the water.
Going back to the rescue process, the process of pulling the car out was relatively easy and simple. The “Matt’s Off-Road Recovery” team tied the rope with the tow hook to the Wrangler, and at the same time switched the transmission to neutral. To combat the force of gravity underwater, an off-road buggy plunged into the river to support the towline. Instead of pulling straight, the force on the rope also pulled up to gradually lift the Jeep out of the sticky riverbed.
The above tactic worked very well, but the next stage was the real challenge. Anyone who has ever had to tow a stalled vehicle with no power steering and brakes knows that it’s not easy. Navigating the Jeep on narrow trails and open terrain with large rocks and steep slopes required all 4 rescue vehicles to join forces at various points, but when night fell, they made it in time. back to the main road successfully.
As for the Jeep Wrangler, the owner will probably have to spend a lot of money to repair it, but in return, he now has an interesting story to tell his friends.
