We got a call for a Jeep Grand Cherokee that the upper ball joint mount had ripped out of the aluminum differential housing!
He was 4-wheeling on a pretty gnarly trail up on Hurricane Mesa.
We recruited Paul, from Fab Rats for his welder and welding skills.
It was eight miles in this trail so after some 4-wheeling to get to it, some winching to get the axle back in place, and some welding to hold it there, we were able to tow it out.
The banana got a flat on the way out due to the valve stem getting ripped off.
Hope you enjoy!

Lifting that jeep up on the hylift and crawling under it is one of the most unnecessarily dangerous things i've seen in a long time.

You people are totally AMAZING, that guy Paul , and you Matt make a perfect team ,after seeing that recovery you guys can do anything,no doubt I’m my mind!
I vote Winder Towing, BleepinJeep, CrawlTV, and Dirona all do a Jeep challenge. Each one brings their Jeep to a predetermined location and has a competition. The competition will consist of different events. Event Number One. The “Drag” Race. To see who has the fastest Jeep of course! Event Number Two. The Mardi CRAWL! A designated route that each Jeep will have to take with only a few lines for each obstacle. Whichever Jeep makes it the fastest/cleanest wins! Event Number Three. The “Hangover” Recovery. To see who can recover a vehicle the fastest. A small passenger car maybe an old beater Honda Civic will be used as the vehicle that needs “recovered”. It will be forcibly stuck somewhere and each Jeep will have to recover it. Whoever recovers it the fastest and most efficiently wins. Event Number Four. The “To-Do” List? Each Jeep will have to complete a series of daily driven tasks. Task number one. Going to get food from a fast food restaurant using the drive thru. Whoever gets through the drive thru the easiest and is able to eat their burger and drink their drink while driving through a closed off parking lot, without spilling a drop wins this event. Task number two. Going to pick up a “friend” and take them to “work”. (Other competitors can be used as “friends” and their “work” can be a predetermined location. Whoever gets them there and doesn’t dirty up their work clothes, or ruin their hair wins this event. Whoever’s Jeep wins the most events wins this portion of the contest. Event Number Five. The “Timmy” Turner! The Jeep’s will all get parked at a mall and whoever’s Jeep turns the most heads in an hours time span gets the win. Whichever Jeep wins the most events overall, wins the entire contest! The winner should receive a trophy of some sort and some free swag from everyone else’s RUvid channel. They also win bragging rights! The three losers have to put a channel sticker from the winner on their Jeep’s and all of them have to wear the winners RUvid channel shirt in their next video. I feel like this would single handedly be one of the funniest, most interesting, and best RUvid collaborations of all time!

If our vehicles stuck in these type of places in India, we need a helicopter to recover the vehicle or we have to leave the vehicle permanently in that place.

The bald ass tires on this recovery vehicle makes me wonder if they can't afford a new set. Super cringe.
Matt's Off Road Recovery
It’s hard to explain to somebody who hasn’t experienced it. The condition of these tires are in in this video are the perfect condition for the work that I do. The soft blow sand is brutal to work in, and a rounded semi bald the tire is king. There’s even a moment in this video where you can see these tires outperforming the new KM3’s on the Toyota.

@matts off-road recovery: You need to make a bigger bullbar and a rear bar should provide enough weight to give you loads more traction than what you are getting your tires are spinning way Too much for something that should be easy

How much does a job like this cost? Gotta be a grand at least? Do people just give you the car when the bill isn't worth it compared to the value of the car?

I really like watching these videos not only because I like cars but also because Matt is very calm, he doesn't swear, doesn't get emotional. He just goes on with his job without any hesitation, blaming or complaining. It's like ASMR to me. Keep up the good work, Matt! Cheers from Poland!

The only equipment which you ought to have, but don't, is a parachute. For living and working in the middle of nowhere, you meet a lot of unusual people in unusual places. Is Jeep a Sponsor? Should be, if they aren't.
