This is what a Jeep engine looks like when revved to 50,000 rpm.

I drag raced for the better part of 30 years and I’ve seen a lot of carnage. But nothing THAT bad. Congrats to the destroyer!

Engine, transfer case, and transmission for $30k...I would think the insurance company would total the vehicle.

LOL... Chevy Chase's Vacation dragging Aunt Edna's dog comes to mind. [emoticon] (Poor little guy probably kept up for a mile or so) [emoticon]

I would think the insurance would deny any claim. This is pure and simple stupidity on the part of the owner.

The only people dumber than the operator of the towed Jeep is the folks that commented on the article in The Drive.
