While scanning through an old army engineering handbook I came across a topic that I had long forgotten about. It is a method of extracting a vehicle wheel stuck in a hole and it works very well, is easy to do and doesn’t require a lot of time. The accompanying drawing explains the method better than I can explain.

In theory that's brilliant :nerd: Having been in the military, I find it very hard to believe the military came up with that all on their own :ya:

I am sure that some joe actually came up with it when they got suck and were forced to figure it out. THen the army adopted it as their own.

Nice. :beer:

Any tire or recovery chain that you carry can accomplish this (does not have to be too long either) after you find the log.... lets just hope the log is around. :scratch:

I don't have any holes in my rims, just the beadlock ring on the outside, but I'd take scratched rims over being stranded overnight, but mine is no show Jeep.

It will work, I can attest to that being raised on a farm. Just never do it on a two wheel drive tractor or lawn tractor as it can flip over backwards. Fortunately I didn't learn about the tractor the hard way.
I bet a farmer told the military about it :whistle: :sneak: :1thumb:

Yes I have used this in the past on a tractor. I works very well Don't know it I would try it on my jeep. I think the Brake lines and brakes would get in the way. On a Tractor you have much more room and they are taller rims.

You have a good point there. It's a good concept and I wonder if it could be rigged up in such a way as to wrap the tire vs going through the wheel. :biggrin1:
