Pulled Some Shrubs, Now I'm Concerned
So this last weekend, I had some heavy duty yardwork to accomplish. I had some old hedges that I wanted to remove.
So, I embraced my inner hillbilly..and took my tow straps....and went to town.
I hooked up the tow strap to the shrub, and connected it to the front tow hoops.
All went well for the first couple of shrubs..yanked em clean out.
But then, on one of the bigger bushes, I actually broke/snapped the tow strap!
Now, stupid me...instead of thinking to myself...hey, I broke a tow strap with a breaking force rated at 12,000-15,000 lbs... I probably should not be doing this... what did I do?
I of course went out and bought another tow strap (the same one).
And...proceeded to snap that one immediately.
After that, I gave up...and decided it probably was not a smart move to begin with.. but now I find myself wondering.. did I, or could I have possibly done any damage to the FJ? It doesn't seem any worse for wear after the fact..but I guess the point of this post is to see if anyone out there could give me possible things to check , to make sure I didnt F anything up?
Thanks for the help!
