THAT.. result wasn't too bad.
I mean, a tailgate, seat and winsheild is nothing to be happy about, but it beats a head.
Every time someone pulls a strap out or a winch cable, I remember reading somewhere about a group of guys. Pretty hard core wheelers. The so called "Big Dogs"
Story goes they were out one day and came along a truck stuck in the mud. What they didn't know is that the idiot stuck had lousy tow points. They tugged on his truck for a while, and eventually decided they really needed to get on it.
That's when the hook belw off the frame of the stuck guy and shot through the head of one of the helper trucks owners girlfriends.
From what I remember, everyone there that day, drove home, parked their trucks, and have never been wheeling since.
Like I was saying the other day.. I've seen a million trucks being winched. If there's no weight on the line, then I offer to toss something on. If the guy says "no that's alright" well then, I really see no need to watch a winch do it's work...
