The Jeep Commander is officially rated to tow about three tons. So quite why a bloke thought he could tow a broken down big rig weighing 15 times that, we have no idea.
But you know what? He was right. Uphill as well. It doesn’t even appear to take much effort. Though it probably shortened the life of the diffs and gearbox quite a lot.
Apparently the truck was causing chaos on Route 53 in Romeoville, Illinois. While other people were trying to arrange recovery, the Jeep driver clearly decided enough was enough and took matters into his own hands.
Well done that man, we say. Though we can’t help but wonder what the police would charge you with if you tried doing the same thing in the UK.
