One of our Brand Ambassadors @ kratos.jku got called out for an evening rescue recovery. Looks like this truck attempted a river crossing and had a slight miscalculation. Matt was able to position his Jeep behind the truck by crossing the river himself, enabling him to perform a more direct in-line recovery. Although not always possible, straight line winching or pulling is always desirable for the safety and strength of you and your equipment. Usually the one who is stuck gets to do the attaching if it is safe to exit the vehicle, especially if its in nasty mud! We aren’t sure who was pulling the synthetic winch rope to attach to the truck with the TRE soft-shackle, but we bet that water was cold! Using his winch, equipped with Tactical Recovery Equipment synthetic winch line with Safety Thimble II, Matt was able to perform a safe and quick recovery. This is a good reason to never go out alone, or without having the correct gear for the terrain. His Jeep Wrangler JKU is equipped with our synthetic winch rope, Safety Thimble II, Safety Thimble Fairlead, and our Quick Release Soft-shackles for performing safe and smooth off road vehicle recoveries.
An off-road event like no other, the winter 4×4 Jamboree gets bigger and better each year. This Winter 4×4 Jamboree 2018 marked the fourth year that Tactical Recovery Equipment has attended while being a silver sponsor and vendor. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect with a warm 65 degrees on Thursday and Friday. The Weather then turned into rain and snow on Saturday but that made it better for the mud puddles!
On day two of the three day event TRE product was captured in the moment of recovery after a rollover. The roll over accident took place on Milts Mile. A green jku was too high on the mountain of an obstacle and made too sharp of a turn. The jku rolled 5 times and into a two door wrangler. Thankfully no injuries occured to anyone in either jeep.
The red wrangler was then removed by winching him out with “The Original Safety Thimble II” and a TRE Soft Shackle. After recovering the red wrangler the next mission was to roll over the green JKU, with the help from Honey Badger by Scorpion Motorsports. Due to the angle and weight of the jku, two snatch blocks were used, one being the 2 lb aluminum TRE snatch block (connected with TRE soft shackles) to double the pulling strength to flip the jeep over. The recovery was a success and everyone walked away injury free. Both jeeps were able to drive out and finish the trail.
TRE would like to thank the event staff for putting on another amazing Winter 4×4 Jamboree, and the continued support from our customers. See you next year!
TRE Products Used During Recovery:

The Original Safety Thimble II – The safest thimble option due to minimal connection points
Tactical Recovery Equipment attended the 36th annual Hump n Bump at the Logandale Fairgrounds this past weekend. This year was the 4th year that Tactical Recovery Equipment has helped sponsor Hump n Bump as a Gold Level Sponsor. TRE raffled off Two 85 ft. Winch Ropes with Safety Thimble II, Two Safety Thimble Fairleads, one 3/4 inch Kinetic Recovery Rope, as well as four Soft Shackles. Unfortunately there was one roll over this year during the Bronco Falls run, thankfully the driver walked away with no injuries! We also had a nice visit from Blackops with his 2017 Sema build of his LS7 1984 CJ7 On 49” Tires. It was another successful year at Hump n Bump selling real world safe recovery gear. If you have not yet been to this event, we suggest you check it out and register next year!
