Risky recovery leads BROKEN recovery!
At Karee Krans we had to do a massive recovery in order to get the Defender up the hill and prevent it from sliding back down, which could cause the Defender to possibly lose control and dangerously roll down the hill. With Johan’s Jeep loosing traction causing the wheels the slide on the loose rocks, Japie had to jump in at the same time with his winch, to keep the Jeep steady. The odds were against them as gravity was pulling them down the hill, causing a lot of weight and strain on the winch rope and eventually causing it to snap.
Replaced Tie Rod Ends
While filming the Adventure series, our vehicles are subject to heavy impacts and excessive wear. The Cruiser started to sound and feel unhealthy, shaking of the steering wheel as well as abnormal vibration under Japie’s feet. Japie had been feeling uneasy and decided to investigate. Upon investigation the Cruiser revealed a cracked bushing along with some crucial looking Tie Rod Ends.
