x2 on the pucker!!! any bumper carnage? Good thing you let off the brakes as the back end was dropping down... you would of bounced back and flipped for sure.

I'm still kinda new to all this jeep stuff, but your XJ seems to bounce around a lot. Do you need new shocks?

x2 on that, a very nice nose manual. It was kinda like tippy a couple times before, the last one was a nice one

Would've been nice to hear the engine sounds on that though, it looked as if the driver did have the situation pretty much under control anyways - but I guess he (or she?) did miss a couple heartbeats on that one..

Yeah, that was scary! Why don't people just use a rope or w/e to secure their Jeep to the Jeep/vehicle behind them? That would provide a lot more help than some man trying to push on it, and wouldn't just about make it impossible to flip?

Because that wouldn't be as much fun and excitement



Being serious, the video was propably from some kind of a competition, so ropes wouldn't have been an option.

And as easy as it may sound to use a rope in similar places, it's just not that straightforward. Surely possible, but I think it would need a lot of teamwork from both drivers of the vehicles, and from the pointers as well (is that how you call the guys showing you the right way?).

It could save you from front flippin', but there is no way a rope would guarantee you won't roll your vehicle. And there is always the risk that the car behind won't have enough grip -> there would be two car's rolling on the worst case. Think about a situation where you need to winch someone up, it's usually not an easy task and sometimes very very hard work. I would say it is even harder to do it downwards on a controllobale fashion. Just my thoughts though, never tried winching anyone down a steep slope.

edit: actually, it might be ok with a winch, but with only a rope I'd say not ok.

Thanks for your thoughts. I've actually yet to be four-wheelin', so I don't actually know how hard it is to winch someone up a slope, but I see your point. Just securing yourself to another vehicle obviously isn't as straight-forward as I was imagining it would be.
