Also the comments are pretty good below the video at least the first few. I stopped after that.

Went four wheeling with some friends, I towed a Ranger to the park. Everyone else broke down, I pulled out 3 other jeeps and another tow rig. I had more trail time in my tow rig than anyone else id in their trail rigs.

See, you're not one of the guys on 42" super swampers that's using a toothbrush to get the road grime out of the siping...
