My mishap.

Just wanted to share how bullet proof our YJs are. So I was driving back to school right? Well with the combination of no carpets, a leaky cowl (will be fixing that ASAP), water in the tub, and slippery shoes when wet, my foot slipped and half of it was touching the tub and the other half was on the pedal and taking a left turn a little too fast. So out of instinct to stop my foot from more slipping, I put it down! Bad mistake when there is a slippery road, engine in ideal range for max torque, and 29in tires, the jeep swung out to the right I was almost perpendicular with the road way. Corrected with minor throttle and steering compensation, and then coming back the rear became loose again and swung me all the way around, up the curb, and onto the grass. It was by the grace of God that there were no cars within 150 yards of me. The only damage as of now (too tired to jack it up) is a bent lip on my wheel. But man how solid are these YJs, you give them heck (sometimes accidentally) and they take it! My friend beats on his YJ all the time and so far so good. Good job Jeep, I hope your bring back a YJ type wrangler just for fun. That's a pipe dream though

Yjs are always known as the "spartan" of the wrangler line. Aka those jeeps are tough.
