Winter 4×4 Jamboree 2018
An off-road event like no other, the winter 4×4 Jamboree gets bigger and better each year. This Winter 4×4 Jamboree 2018 marked the fourth year that Tactical Recovery Equipment has attended while being a silver sponsor and vendor. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect with a warm 65 degrees on Thursday and Friday. The Weather then turned into rain and snow on Saturday but that made it better for the mud puddles!
On day two of the three day event TRE product was captured in the moment of recovery after a rollover. The roll over accident took place on Milts Mile. A green jku was too high on the mountain of an obstacle and made too sharp of a turn. The jku rolled 5 times and into a two door wrangler. Thankfully no injuries occured to anyone in either jeep.
The red wrangler was then removed by winching him out with “The Original Safety Thimble II” and a TRE Soft Shackle. After recovering the red wrangler the next mission was to roll over the green JKU, with the help from Honey Badger by Scorpion Motorsports. Due to the angle and weight of the jku, two snatch blocks were used, one being the 2 lb aluminum TRE snatch block (connected with TRE soft shackles) to double the pulling strength to flip the jeep over. The recovery was a success and everyone walked away injury free. Both jeeps were able to drive out and finish the trail.
TRE would like to thank the event staff for putting on another amazing Winter 4×4 Jamboree, and the continued support from our customers. See you next year!

The Safety Thimble is designed to prevent the thimble from getting pulled into the fairlead where most accidents happen in winching, often due to winch “run-on” from electric winches. The Thimble, unlike hooks and and standard steel thimbles, does not scratch your fairlead which causes damage to synthetic winch ropes. It is also the lightest and most versatile recovery option to be used with synthetic winchline. It is made of 6061 Aluminum and CNC precision machined making it the lightest and most versatile recovery option to be used with your winch. It was designed to be used with synthetic winch ropes and replaces the need for standard eye hooks. The Safety Thimble is designed and manufactured 100% in the USA. Continue reading Safety Thimble 2
