Crappy driving combined with stupidity should be punished harshly. It prevents those traits from being passed on.

Hopefully she learned her lesson and will in the future wear any and all appropriate safety gear.... of which a seatbelt is the DEAD minimum.
That might be taking the criticism a bit too far......

In my humble opinion.

This was sheer stupidity all around.

And if that was disconnected... must be mighty stiff suspension.
There no way it was disconnected IMO

She is so lucky she only went over once, and what was with the dumb a$$ spoter. He is lucky to be alive, not a great place to stand below a jeep going down hill.

Just a question but do you guys ever tether a vehicle in a situation like this with a winch or some other safety device?

Did just that on saturday. the waggy was sitting on the edge of a pretty steep dune, side on. We strapped forward while I pulled the back end to the side.

What's the point of having fender flares that let water/mud through?

My mistake.

Would like to see more pictures of your Jeep though.

Straping up in this situation workd great. As JBolty and Stvdiego put a little pressure on the straps, I was able to drive right out of that situation,,,,,,,,,,right into another, getting high centered on the razor back. Oh well, I'd rather be HC than barrol rolling down the dune. Thanks again guys for a great weekend!

There are two sides to the hill. The part everyone normally goes down has a pretty steep initial drop and IMO going up over it with a short wheel base would be asking to go over backwards. The other side is a little less steep but is sort of a rock face covered with decomposed granite, or some other pea sized rocks, and is pretty slippery. Plenty of people have gone up but personally I am not a fan of having to back down a steep slippery hill with a drop off at the bottom into a canyon. I'll stick to one way.

It's all about a good spotter and brake control.


looking down

That picture of Josh is one of my favorites from HAH. Looks like he is sitting on his front bumper.

looks dramatic, but just about everything that goes over that edge has the right rear in the air for a few seconds.
