So we got a call for an Artic Cat Wildcat stuck in a canyon, east of Mount Carmel junction.
The steering had locked up, and it wouldn't steer.
We called Paul, he is close and knows the area.

@D C Just adds more challenge to the next vehicle... These trails get beat up with every passage..
Jennifer WhiteWolf
@Charles Logston If you have to ask, you can't afford it. it must be costly... 2 vehicles, multiple staff, highly specialized equipment... more than half a day.. Yikes!
Jennifer WhiteWolf
Somebody shows up with a D4 Cat, they will clean up recovery in steep country like this.. just rumble on in, hook up thousands of pounds and rumble on out. Heavy tracked vehicles with thousands of Ft/Pounds on the tracks just keep on moving.

This maybe a dumb question but would tracks be better in that sandy shit yall have to pull out of or is the tires just as good? You bout need a good set of paddles for that sand.

Just out of curiosity, if I happen to own that Wildcat and needed you to come out and recover it for me, how much would something like cost?

"Squishy to me is 6." What's the lowest psi you guys run on your tires out there?

What's amazing first is that they got this out of an almost impossible place. As I watch it each time (3 or 4 times), I'm steering for them and rolling around in my chair trying to get them over that first hill. Second, since it has been out, it has been watched almost 1.2 MILLION times. What is not as amazing; but is sure as the desert has grains of sand, If Paul and Matt team up, It is going to get unstuck without fail, no matter how hard it may be.! Love you guys!

Would think with all that trailer articulation in relation to the truck you would want some safety chains.

Bro I love this video and a bunch if others u post. Also I really like how ur buddy has his Tacoma set up. I have a 05 DCSB also trd off road 6 SPEED MANUAL with rear locker and about a 2 inch lift. I want to set it up for offloading. Do u know what lift and suspension and size tires and Bumper and winch he is using? Or can send me a link maybe. I have running boards and bull bar on my truck now and will remove those. I just want to make it as offroad capable as possible but still able to drive on the road. Great video again bro!

Why not winch the Jeep up that hill first and then winch the trailer to save all that hassle and then once on top, hook them up together

Should put a pintle hook on that trailer... give you a good solid very flexible connection. Had an old military trailer I would pack my camping gear it wheeling with my rubicon. Was a great setup.

Love your videos. But noticed the Jeep tires are bald. Is that for building up suspense?
Matt's Off Road Recovery
Far better for the soft blow sand than a tire with a lot of tread. I’m guessing if the Toyota had the same tires, we would not have needed the winch.

Just a question, why isn't your tire for off road? It doesn't have any spikes in it, like dirt bike and road bikes, dirt bikes have spikes o it.

Thank you for the awesome videos. They are the highlight on my day. I got an idea with this one: The trailer looks useless. It would be great to hook up the Wildcat directly to the tow bar. Probably with some kind of a long bar underneath the Wildcat tied in the middle. So the front would be lifted (the front wheels can be taken off) and Wildcat would have only rear wheels on the ground. No need to pull the trailer. The weight would provide more traction for the Jeep. Somebody can drive the Wildcat! That would be awesome to see. It would push instead of being a burden :)

At the minute 28 it looks like problem of traction. So I would put all people inside and few large boulders. 300kg of weight would give lots of traction. The Jeep has plenty of power which it cant utilize all. So it is trading unused power for traction

They perform the best in our soft blow sand. If the Toyota had the same tires, we probably wouldn’t have needed the winch.

Man, I am worn out and need a nap trying to help you guys get up that hill. Every time he would back up just a little and then pull forward with a jerk I thought, "well, they got out that time", and then you would only go about 3 feet. I'm really tired. You guys are amazing. There are not many people that could get out of the spots you guys have to get in so you can rescue someones vehicle.

13:50 that would have been the perfect occasion for a run-over shot (leave the camera sit in between those rocks) Beautiful landscape, looks great for awd trailing... But they should make those side-by-sides electrical... They'd be stronger and faster too, but most of all not waste nature with the pointless noise. =))
