Awesome video man!This one definitely wins title of “the easiest looking, and most stuck”Thanks for hanging out with us. Can’t wait to do it again!
so sweet and great support, love to see good friends working and having fun.
@Chad Vanmeter Moorflare has a winch too you know.
matt sorry but the moorvar wudnt got that out
You Matt and Rory are the odd couple of recoveries one who carries every conceivable recovery device needed and then there is you lol but in your defense being light weight sure helps on the dunes
That's what she said Matt.
Rory carries 5 winches and every concievable piece of equipment, plus some, and back ups. Matt travels light, he doesn't even like to have a full tank of gas. The odd couple of off road recovery.
That is funny! The odd couple of off road recovery. So true.
I was thinking the same thing. It really is amazing how little Matt carries, but in his defense his primary area is the sand dunes where being light really is important. Thus isn't the first time Rory and all his gear has come to Matt's rescue.
"Doesn't even have a full tank of gas." This is hilarious.
I’m really starting to like Rory. He’s a solid man to have in your corner for sure.
@Ocean Lover that’s how I found out bout him
The dude is very talented and smart Greta fabricator and mechanic not too mention great driver gotta be doin the shit he is. Also I’m sorry I took this post from 111 likes and 11 comments 😂
If he can handle these situations with ease, I would not piss him off just for fun.He would make short work of a man, quietly and quickly.Damn solid dude for sure.
I'm thinking Utah is the place to live. Seem like a lot of good people there.
Rory is definitely the kind of man you want in your corner. I sure wouldn't want him in the opposite corner!
Rory is a badass. A man of few words, but masterful at solving problems without telling anyone exactly what he's doing.
@calholli Yep! Could not agree more!
I'm that same way.. when there's work to be done, there's nothing to talk about. lol ... and get out of my way while we're at it
@Jessie Oropeza I know why you feel that way but trust me....his results do all of the talking.We would all be wise to follow his lead and just learn. :)
And that’s the problem lol he needs to show and tell for better content for himself 🤷♂️
Rory is in fact a master rigger.
Trail Mater saves the day. It's fun watching how capable this rig is. Keep em coming.
The more I watch Rory, the more I like him. I love how prepared he is. The Milwaukee packout setup is awesome too!
You were the unsung hero of this recovery Rory. You drove two hours and quietly got the job done while everyone looked on. Then you were the one who thought to check the diff oil - I can't remember where, but I have seen a similar situation where the diff took on water through its breather. It might have been Paul at Fab Rats, or it might have been Andrew Camarata, but I remember them putting an extender pipe on the final drive breather to get it well above water ingress unless the vehicle managed to become fully submerged. I feel like I need to apologise for only just subscribing to your channel today, because you totally deserve a massive following. Count me in going forward - that's for damn sure.
Trail Mater does it again. It’s amazing what you and that rig are capable of doing.
Well done Rory. I always appreciate how much equipment and how many tools you carry around. You have it stored so well, unlike some others who we won't mention by name, who just throw it in the back. 🙂
@Tumbleweed Well said. My plumber’s the bomb! I even noticed traction matts on Rory’s truck
The trail mater kind of reminds you of a plumber's work van. They haul an entire hardware store in a little 3/4 ton single tire cargo van and they weigh a BUNCH.
Matt:hates winches Rory: has 6 winches
@Tanks A. Lot I was thinking I had seen it a few times, I had just watched one with him using it so I was sure of that one .
Matt's been using the winch a lot since he built the MORRvair.
I think Rory has shown him how helpful a winch can , in Matt’s latest video he used the winch.
Man, I love how prepared you always are, wish I could come pay you to teach me all that amazing stuff, or even just to ride along and film and learn, I’d pay so much for that.
You'd ask to many questions.. He's very stoic, until he gets to know you.
Wet sand sticks are common where I live in the deep south. Sometimes impossible to just pull them out as you can tear otherwise solid hookup points right out of the frame or twist frames by pulling too hard. Trick is to dig the recovery vehicle in, tie two recovery vehicles together or run a cable from recovery vehicle to something solid. Then be careful and patient. Winch tight and stop before you think something is going to break then wait 5 minutes and winch a tiny bit more, going by the winch sound. Keep doing this over time, I have had them take well over an hour until the suction finally breaks and they pop right out.
@Da Wabbitt maybe a specifically-designed air bag that digs in under the tire, then inflates? That way the bag itself breaks some contact? I'm not sure, there's a reason I don't do recovery work hahaha
That's an excellent point you brought up - and one we think little to nothing about. Trying to pull your foot out of mud that has barely covered the top of your shoe often leaves the shoe itself buried in the mud - and only if your lucky.Wondering if there'd be a way to introduce compressed air via a hose attached to a solid pipe that a helper could hold and 'inject' air in between the stuck tire/rim and the mud? - Or perhaps it would have a totally opposite effect and simply bury the vehicle even further into the mud?
Love your content Rory. No flash. Just honest work ethic.
Rory is a pro! And Trail Mater is a beast!
Rory you have always been the best at getting em out with the wrecker and the tools you have. Love watching your show.
Awesome job, trail-mater is the Swiss army knife of tow rigs.
Rory is impressive! Has a ton of skill behind the wheel and so much mechanical knowledge. Enjoy watching him do what he does!
Solid video man! I can't wait to watch this channel build! Watching you guys do your thing is so fun, also learn a lot from watching this....just awesome content! 😁
Great job and team work. I really like watching these video’s because it seems I always gain a bit more knowledge here and there. I just added checking the rear axle for water intrusion to my list. 👍And I added the necessary tool to my recovery tool kit.
Great recovery and thankful to have been able to watch it before heading to work (before 7 a.m.) Funny thing though - Rory was exceptionally quiet throughout this video. 🤔 - Hope everything's ok.
Hey Rory, I live in the amazing town of Hanksville. glad to see you in this neck of the desert. Its people like you that make southern Utah great.
There were two vertical "steps" on the bank coming out holding both front and rear wheels at the same time. it had to be lifted over both at the same time and that is difficult when you are just pulling. This was very difficult, but you did the job very well. Nothing broken or bent and its out. This was the perfect vehicle for this job. Awesome job!
That rig is amazing! Matt, Rory...you guys are amazing at what you do. Hope to see you on the trails...NOT pulling me out...🤔😆😁
Your rig is awesome, as scrappy as it looks, when you put it into action, you can see all of the thought and wisdom that went into the build. It also looks like that stuck vehicle had a winch; nothing sucks worse than being stuck and having nothing to connect a winch to.
I once watched a documentary from a guy in Australia who showed, how to use the spare tire, dug in the sand like an anchor for his winch to pull himself out of his misery. I could never forget this trick even I would never have to try it.
Hey Rory. That was a fun recovery adventure video. Great to see the collaboration with Matt and crew. Just cool to see 2 different approaches to the problem. Glad you were there to winch him out.
Trail Mater and Rory is a serious combination. Love to see the team up with Matt and company.
Love the side by side driving and the smirk! Friends are meant to be harassed every once in awhile!
Who will win.? The Torque of the Big Block or the HP of the LS..? Lol
Really enjoyed this video, especially when you get to team up with Matt and his gang! Mater and Rory are the recovery champs!
That was another good one. I've said it before, really liking the collaboration videos.
That Matt is a good friend to have. He's not competitive at all and he ain't shy about telling you when you done good.
Love watching you guys work together. The best of the best!
The trailmater is well, yet lightly equipped. The sound of the engine, amazingly soothing. Rory is IT, but darn quiet today. Lizzie successful at the wheel, again... Sorry Matt, stealing your line: and a bunch of lookie loos. Lol
I bet that was an epic run right up until he was stuck.
That was an amazing recovery. You made it look easy. Thanks for sharing.
Also, very cool to enjoy Matt’s spirit behind the camera and his support for his friend. What a good dude he is!
You guys make me want to buy a jeep and head to Utah for some off roading adventure.. The scenery you guys capture is second to nun. I look forward to every video. Thanks for what you do!
Just steer clear from here in Nevada, there's nothing! Ha! : )
Rory, Thanks for the videos. The "I can do this" rumble of the 454 and the clank and bang of the truck are pure music to my ears and contentment to my soul. An occasional explanation of why a knuckle or an axle shaft breaks under a certain condition or what to watch out for in a certain drive situation would be helpful to someone who is trying to improve his rig and his driving judgment. After all, who could we use as a source of insight better qualified than you? Hats off to you my friend. Thanks.
My husband and I really like watching your videos. We love that you’re not flashy, just great content and a great guy!
That rig was loaded down with camp gear. That must have helped it get good and sucked in too. Crazy how adventure can go so bad. Glad they had your help! You rock! :) thanks for sharing.
Trail mater is the boss! I love how overly prepared you are too. I packed up my rig with all kinds of tools, parts and fluids for a cross country trip and my wife thought I was crazy. I don’t like being stranded and helpless! If you own, need it, but don’t have it; shame on you.
You and that rig never seise to amaze man!! And I love how prepared you are for anything,
What a BEAST of a truck....!!!!!When looking at it for the first time and someone compares it to a modern tow truck, the first thought would be WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS THING..???not realizing that you don't judge a book by it's cover, this BEAST will do what no other tow truck can do...!!!!
Great extraction, Rory! You’ve got an Uber capable setup there. I really enjoy your collaboration with Matt and Paul from FabRats! Next time I’m in Moab with the Jeep, I’ll have to look you up! My daughter-in-law is from Moab; her family owns and operates Worldwide River Expeditions. 😎
You pulled up beside Mr. Matt at 01:45 and his tires and wheels looked like he was going backwards, he throttled it, for a second or two they stood still then he was gone forward again, and you smile said it all…Loved the camaraderie amongst the group, even the customer was having fun at his expense!
Rory you're a very relatable youtuber. I enjoy your videos and really appreciate your willingness to help out and overall attitude even when things go sideways. Side note, between you, Matt, Paul, robby, and bleepin jeep and all of your team members is quite the friends group to be envious of. Always helping each other and there for one a other. I love being able to watch any one of all of your videos and see everyone popping in randomly really gives a dimension to the videos that isn't found anywhere.
Exactly!! It's such a treat! Did you see Robby Layton's video of his Matt impression? I laughed my ass off for 10 minutes, it was hilarious!
You and Matt are awesome Love both of your videos no matter when they come up I love watching them you know you put a smile on my face!
Great to see you in action again, lovely to see Matts Off road recovery there also good back up in case it went really wrong. A good friend to have. Cheers Rory.
Matt's Off Road RecoveryFabRats and Robby Layton my favorite RU-clip Channels, Have liked and subscribed this channel when I seen Rory helping Matt out last video, good bloke. Take care fellas.
Keep the content coming Rory! You have a different style… embrace it rockstar! We love it!
Another great channel…Trail Mater is a beast. Just another day in the office. 🤙
It’s crazy how time goes by. You posted this 2 weeks ago and Matt posted it 9 hours ago! Lol. You do great work. Thank you
A man of few words but big actions and results!👍
Great video guys... it just goes to show everyone what the preparations for a successful tow must include, EVERYTHING.! Be ready for anything, that’s why these guys are successful
Give it another year or two, and we just might see Rory with an off-road Rotator Rig. Do they make a rotator like Ron Pratt's with all wheel drive and all terrain tires? If not, I expect Heavy Dave Sparks could make him one.
Hey, Rory. I just drifted over from Matt's channel. Excellent recovery, and quit the rig you've got there. I know Matt has mentioned admiring your rig a number of times when you've been involved in rescues or rock-crawling, and I found myself wondering if his admiration for your setup is what has prompted him to start his latest project of the ultimate recovery truck. Either way, you guys work well together, and it's such a pleasure seeing people working in harmony with each other. Good job!
Excellent recovery! This reminded me so much of early MORR videos. Matt was so camera shy and didn’t know what to say. ❤️👍👍👍👍👍😎
Not just stuck .. embedded I'd reckon. Interesting system of extraction. We've got the same in Oz Rory.. miles upon miles of nothing just boring driving. Thanks for sharing mate. Bushyboy Oz.
Gr8t job!! Love to see the teamwork with Matt’s off road to help people get out! Another awesome video!
Great job Dude, that's wat happen's when u have the Right rig for the job ! 1st Class all the way 👍👍
more videos please, I drove wrecker in the mountains in my younger days. My rig was a ton and half IH with a holmes split boom, and 2 PTO winches. Also had an electric winch on the front. I had wheels off the ground a number of times.
The doors are an awesome upgrade, great job on the recovery, love your videos
Trail Mater and Corvair racing each other made my day. Thank you! :)
Dear Rory, I would say that you are "MacGyver of the recoveries", but also I saw your driving skill on rock trails so you really know how to control the vehicle and chose the path!
Did you see the video where Rory backed his rig up a trail incline that looked impossible to go up frontwards
Matt's a good friend. Having friends like that is worth the world! All the best!
Trailmater is quite an impressive machine!
Yeah, Matt you made the right call getting Rory in on his fishing trip! Good job getting it out!
There is something primal about Trail Mater. It looks, like it wasn't build, but Rory just found it in Moab hunting down the unfortunate driver and tamed it.
I’ve forded the Muddy River at that location on numerous occasions, always on dual sport motorcycles. The tricky thing about that place is that the storms rearrange the sandy real-estate and as a result the fording is almost always different - sometimes in a completely different location - as last time you’ve crossed the river/stream. Smart adventures carefully walk it first before committing to it. But it’s easy to criticize when you’re not there. Happy it worked out with no more trouble than it took.
That’s cool to know. Had no idea.
Most the water that is in the muddy comes from water we pump out of the coal mines
Rory you are the man !! New here and really enjoy your content. Keep up the good work.
Another great job! Thanks to Matt for doing the camera work.
Rory, that matt dude did a pretty damn good job being a cameraman! Time to hire him for the channel!
Great video, I like seeing you and Matt working together.
You are an off road recovery beast!!! Your truck is an amazing machine!!!
Great recovery Rory and Matt, That was one stuck vehicle.Thanks for sharing.
It is so damn impressive how prepared you are Rory
👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍 you saved the day! I enjoy seeing y’all collaborate!
Hey Rory I just subscribed and am thoroughly enjoying your videos. Keep em coming brother and stay safe out there!! Jim
Great video I got to your channel awhile back through Matts off road recovery and I really like itKeep doing what you're doing Rory it's working
Matt and the guys did an awesome job on that Morvair !Matt's crew is a good bunch of guys .
I came, I saw, now I think I know why Matt and Rudy don’t bother equipping their recovery rigs with accessaries as Rory does! Matt’s Recovery Calls Trail Mater if’n they needs accessorizin’ !!!Or Liftin’ UP
Good job Rory 👍👍The first foot can be the toughest part of a recovery 🤔I had to laugh 😂, we need someone to climb down into the sinking truck and drive it out, who should do it 🤔 how about Lizzy??🤣👍👍Hey Matt, nice camera work and support for Rory 😉
Good work, I dig all the winches on your rig, awesome!!
I love your rig. Prepared for anything! Nice Job.
I know what he woulda done if he just had the morvair Call Rory 😂
As usual, Great job Rory. Matt with the selfie filming, like a teenage tik tok video. 🤣
Great extraction from the frozen mud River, that little s.u.v. was some stuck! Like Matt said " the tires started to elongate, than the stretched tires being smaller on the round let go.A great " Off Road Recovery "Awesome job! 👌✌🏻👋❄🇨🇦😎
Great team work with Matt’s crew. Rory is very knowledgeable man. Matt’s help in growing Rory’s channel is appreciated.
Trail Mater is the beast of all beasts! Great job.
That was a real drag race! Let's go Brandon 🤠
That's a beast of a rig 💪
I was waiting for Matt to open up the Morvair when you got up next to him lol Easier job when you have an off road tow truck huh , watching you test tug on it that thing was suctioned in big time !! Great video Rory !!
Watching this crew in action almost makes me want to get stuck.
Matt could not of picked a better person to help him! Great job and video!
