This is a photo of Steve Oaks XJ being plucked off the rocks after snapping an RCV shaft at the 2017 Jeep Rally.

What was interesting to me is how perfectly balanced it is when hanging from that point above the windshield.

I feel like they pick that Jeep up out of the rocks every single year.

That dude with the cowboy hat operating the excavator was really really good.
Like Pat said."It's an art form"
That machine behaved like a living being.
