Jeep Wrangler Climbing A Tree - Whoops!

I was helping Ramsey winch test the new wireless controller. After using it to winch up a couple of ledges, I took a bypass down. As I dropped off the top ledge, the driver-side tire hooked a tree root and the rear kept on moving until I stopped up in a tree. After three hand winchings, we pulled it down without any damage.
