$30k mistake.  Having driven many Jeeps in 4W-low in first gear, I'm surprised the tires turned on the pavement and didn't just skid along.  I could see the long black skid marks and worn down alloy wheels.  Explain this bill to the Mrs.

Who do you think was driving the RV while the drunk husband was passed out in the back?

I agree.  I'm surprised the wheels turned at all, much less enough to achieve 50,000 engine rpm.  :unsure:

Anybody can make a mistake, but I would think that when you first tried to tow it, and it didn't want to move easily (as evidenced from the skid marks), you would stop and check to make sure you had released the brakes and that the transmission was in neutral.  :rolleyes:

I was driving a lumbering work truck down the tollway when a class 'A' camper flew by me while flat towing a Jeep. He had to be traveling above 80 mph. And he forgot to unlock the Jeeps steering wheel so its front tires were locked at almost a 45% angle. I was actually surprised at how many miles I had to travel to finally start seeing tire chunks and the camper and the Jeep (minus its front tires) on the side of the road.

For what? Inane request of the day?  The DOLT requested some snide remarks, I provided a few (for FREE!), and he still whinges about it?!?!?

Some people will bitch no matter what you do.  Ugly link, pretty link whatever.

Next time I will stay with the tried and true BMBM.
