    The towing jeep needs to lower air pressure for more traction. Does the jeep being pulled need air let out? Trying to understand. Less traction would be less rolling resistance on the one being pulled unless I am not understanding some part.

    Is it just me or is Matt's daughter the absolute dream girl? Not afraid to get dirty, and not scared of a little work. Unsure of her age but I'm in my early 20's, and wouldn't mind waiting a couple years for a gem like her. Great chanel all around tho, I watch every episode.

    if the wrangler runs she could put it in gear while she is rolling and help in the sand. It will just die when you stop.

    Wonder what the time frame on average you have between break down and rescue before the vehicle is vandalized , was there any time that that didn't happen ?

    Been working on a YJ in my garage for a few weeks now. Wife asked why I'm working on it since it ran and drove when we bought it. So we don't break down in the middle of nowhere and have to pay a crazy high recovery bill was my answer.......Nickle and dime repairs: but a lot of them......I'm one of the fix it before it breaks guys and not a run it till it don't guy.

    Shitty situation but it's something totally avoidable with maintenance, clutches are like brakes they do wear and you should have some kind of mental note how worn yours is so you know weather it's a good idea to go off-road, situations like that heat and wear the clutch way more than standard driving.

    I usually have ratchet straps and bungees in my vehicle for a variety of purposes. When towing another vehicle with open hooks on the rope/strap, I typically hook my bungees into the ends of the rope/strap to keep tension on the open hooks so the towing strap doesn't fall off. I usually tow on-road vehicles and my towing strap has open hooks. Hook into the tie-down/assist under the bumper or the screw-in eye in the bumper and attach the other end of the bungee up higher (under the hood if necessary). I came across a Subie with the opposite clutch problem a few months ago. Pedal on the floor and the clutch wouldn't disengage. Towed it a few blocks to a mechanic. I tried to tell the owner there was a screw-in eye he could just take a small square plug out of his plastic bumper cover and attach. He fairly quickly took his entire plastic bumper cover off (and I showed him the threaded hole for the screw-in eye). Hooked up to the exposed metal and off we went. We got to the mechanic shop just seconds before the employees locked up and left for the evening.

    When my Jeep Wrangler JK 2.8crd manual ate up the clutch there was an awesome fail-safe in-built that somehow engaged the flywheel with the power take off of the gearbox and allowed full power transmission! You couldn’t slip the clutch for a smooth power take up but you could leave the Jeep in gear, turn the key and immediately set off; then you could shift gears by rev-matching. That’s how I managed to get out of a very nasty trail. Not sure if any other model has the same feature though...

    If you have an inspection plate you can remove and get to the clutch/flywheel you can have someone hold the clutch pedal down and you can pound sagebrush, sticks, with a rock if you have to between the flywheel and the clutch, rotate it around and fill it up, then release the pedal and start it in gear and drive away, it works I have done it, just remember don't push in the clutch pedal or you have to start over, easier said than done!
