I believe the grand had some transfer case issues and only had 2wd. And the liberty had to be pulled up and was begging for some redemption points afterward

At "The Bump" stay as far to the right as you can and you will do fine. Hug the right side.

Nope... Not far enough right....

And a little flex in the suspension would have helped a bit too!

It was teetering to roll off the ledge.
He had the strap there and he backed back down the slope.
No load was on the cage.

I just kept paying out the cable as he backed down to keep the shiney side up.

His Jeep was really capable, but that line over there is not a good idea.
