Thumbs up JEEPS in the News

Hey Guys
I live in Oklahoma and the weather here goes full retard around this time of year. We had at least a dozen tornado's (one tigernado ) lots of Hail and a ton of rain last night. With lot of the OKC metro area flooding the general public had to get home .Most of the local news channels go to full weather coverage and show all the stranded cars floating with their owner wading out of wait deep water. SO here comes the JEEPs to the rescue. I saw at least 6 or so guys with their jeeps pulling people out of the water. more people would try to make it across flooded intersection and they would fail and a jeeper was their to pull them right out. It was nice to see some badass jeepers helping people out. I also remember some guys to the south in Texas helping truckers get up some ice covered hills this past winter. So if anybody has any rescue pics or videos post them up or if you have a cool "i was on the news " story post it .

Pretty cool stuff and good on the Jeep community.

I have a buddy who is always running his mouth about my Rubicon and Jeepers in general. He has a Toyota so there's a pretty funny rivalry that already exists between the two camps. For what its worth, his rig is fully fabbed and put my Jeep to shame the only time we wheeled together. I'll make sure to tell him about the lack of Yota's and their community in the news helping out people.

had a similar thing happen last year during snowpocalypse here in ATL. I can't find it right now, but there was a shot of about 10 or so wranglers lined up on the shoulder of one of the highways waiting to figure out where to go to help yank people out of ditches.

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.

My other hobby is the 2nd Amendment.
Its nice to have a hobby like Jeeps that aren't being hammered in the media all the time.
