Didn't see any reason to bother with it. He had a winch line on him the whole time anyway. Besides, it really didn't want to move anywhere on only 3 wheels. So it didn't seem necessary to go through all of that hassle.
The good news is that 95% of that recovery was done by the Jeep owner with his own winch and tools. Just with that he was able to get his axle back on flat ground. Nate and the other guy showed up to give him the last tug to get the ass end out. But honestly, he probably could have made it in time. We didn't have a rig there so our main role was just keeping the guy calm, offering suggestions, spotting, and an occasional spare hand. Otherwise, it was all him.
