How To Replace A Missing Wheel With A Human Being

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

When your UTV loses a front wheel in the Glamis sand dunes you could either wait for a recovery vehicle or, apparently, stick a human counterweight on the opposite side of your buggy and carry on. Something tells me this strategy is not exactly OSHA-approved.

I’ve driven quite a few of these UTVs and every one I’ve sat in has had a sticker that said something like “keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times.” But I guess if you can hear the hair-raising wail of the Coma-Doof Warrior bearing down on your dune, you don’t have time to deal with warning labels.


Stay safe out there, please.
