Is it the black Disco's brakes that went? Not Jimmy's, right?

Believe it's Freddie's Disco. And no, not Jimmy's brakes (as far as I know). We got caught up with a very tippy LR4; but Steve handled it well.

Interested in that rack. Who's 90 and what brand of rack is that? Interesting to see its bolted to the NAS cage.

Edit..the white NAS 90.

Thanks a ton to the guys who stabilized me and assisted in the recovery! There was definitely a pucker factor there with my Landy's ass in the air like that.

Truck belongs to Michael of the greater Boggs clan if I'm correct in my taxonomy-fantastic guy. Rack is an ARB and goes to the rain gutter. His truck is extremely well sorted.

My brakes were fine. The guy in the black Disco was driving in high range and seemingly boiled the brake fluid. His brakes started working later down the trail. It was definitely a bad place for brakes to go out. I ended up getting dragged into a rather large rock.

Literally boiled the fluid? Looks like you're lucky the bumper didn't fold into the wing. Time to ditch that stock bumper, buddy!

Time for a winch bumper since I already have two winches that aren't mounted to vehicles! I think when brake fluid isn't changed it absorbs moisture, and over time, that will lower the boiling point of brake fluid. That's the only explanation I can come up with. He had no leaks, and very little pressure in the pedal.

There are more pictures taken by others - but the white LR4 cut a tire. They slapped the spare on and kept going.
