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!
TRE Products Used During Recovery:
- Snatch Block – Lightweight while being heavy duty,
- Soft Shackle – Lightweight, safe, and can be used for multiple situations
- The Original Safety Thimble II – The safest thimble option due to minimal connection points
Tactical Recovery Equipment attended the 36th annual Hump n Bump at the Logandale Fairgrounds this past weekend.
