    Long story short... my truck broke down on my way to work tonight. I was DIW on state street. I started pushing it down the road by myself when some dude stopped, pulled a strap from his jeep and pulled me down the road to my work. I made it to work on time, and have made arrangements to get it taken care of.

    I have no idea if you're a NWFA guy or not, but you looked like an experienced 4x'er so I just assume you might also be into guns.

    If you get this, thanks for the help man. PM me and I'll replace that item.

    It wasn't me. In my short experience owning Jeeps, I was always the one being towed!:laugh:

    Most of the 4x4 crowd are real good people.

    Just as an update....

    I ran into this guy again. Well.... sort of. I was in the left turn lane... he pulled up to the right turn lane. So... two lanes over from me. I waved, rolled down my passenger side window and yell'd out, "Hey Brother!! I owe you a tow strap!!" (He couldn't get it untied so just cut it off at the knot).

    He smiled and yelled back, "Don't sweat it man... glad I could help"

    It's nice to find good people in the world.

    Here's your (everybody's, not just the OP) official call to pay it forward.

    Who can you help today?
