Another Eagle to the rescue!
« on: December 18, 2012, 09:23:41 PM »
Went cutting wood and the firewood truck got stuck. Called up to the house and the Eagle came to the rescue, Eagle pulled the 4WD HEMI Ram out of the much with only a few tugs.

First time the Eagle ever goes offroad and I don't even get a chance to drive.

Will be uploading a video shortly.

Love it! I still wonder what makes these little Eagles better than others in these circumstances.

Thanks guys! It actually did a LOT better than I thought it would. I wheeled the snot out of my old Eagle but this one has been strictly a pavement pounder up until the other day. Took it up and down the creek a few times with water atleast over the bottom doorsill and the road to get in there involves a decent mudhole that swallowed another (rental) Ram pickup a few years back. Whacked one rock with the T case skid plate but that was about it.

One thing I definitely noticed, this bird needs low range! Oh yeah, and towhooks. ;D
