Very well said!!! Can't agree strongly enoughNews articles like that, make me think of some posts you read on this JL forum and on the JK forums..
Guys saying they routinely pull people out of ditches and how fun..... well, it can be more then just fun and games so to speak. Recovery work can go sour really quickly...
Also ... You hear guys saying they installed a tow hitch on their Wrangler and say cheaped out on the install ... installed but only used 2 bolts versus three/four, didn't fit right, etc... BUT they spew, all they were going to do is have a bike rack hooked to the hitch so no big deal that the install was iffy..
Terrific .......... you use the piss ass, poor install for you bike and yes, it works for you..... THEN ...you sell that Wrangler in a couple of years or so, and the new owner is unaware that you did a piss ass install. He hooks up a trailer to the hitch and goes to tow, and has the hitch pull loose like in this case.... and he loses his trailer, does property damage or hurts/kills people.
