Yup, that be T-Way...

His rear track bar felt it didn't need to be part of the Jeep when we were Canada so we had to call the mounties to help him out. :tonka:

Obviously a photochop.

1) A UH-1 can carry a slung load of about 4000 pounds - which is less than a Jeep without trailer.

2) Slung load WITH trailer? Please.

3) The Jeep looks a little... uh ... large compared to the UH-1.

And it looks suspiciously like a pic GM had from a Canada run, except the chopper was lugging a water bag (or something similar)...

Pretty bad photochop at that. Gotta at least match the lighting on both objects.

Although there are plenty of Jeeps that don't weigh 4000 lbs. Some even with trailers.

A "rotor" is defined as "An assembly of rotating horizontal airfoils, as that of a helicopter." Both helicopters had single rotors. Yes the second one did have more blades, but you didn't state that a chopper with more blades couldn't lift the weight, you started that a single rotor chopper couldn't lift the jeep.

So :stan3: :gman:
