cant believe the bfg only lasted 9 kms against a log....
I would have had my money it lasting longer!!! or one of the straps breaking first.....

Yeah I'm surprised the straps outlasted the sidewall. Shitty deal though, guess it's good you were just on a road and not in the middle of an obstacle.

I'm thinking you don't feel the same way but a lot of my best outings were when something went wrong and I had to rig stuff up to get home. Nothing gets the adrenaline going like realizing your are totally screwed, out in the middle of nowhere and nobody's gonna come look for you for a long time. It separates the men from the boys.

Sorry about your bad luck and respect to you for getting yourself home. I know a lot of people who wouldn't even have thought of trying to rig something up.[cheers]

I have seen that ….not on just jeeps. Ask Pegleg how he got his name. Darrel put the log under his trucks where the tire was and skidded it out. I would have never thought of that.
