Now as far as WJ capability, I was very proud to be pulled out buy a couple guys in samurais that were exo framed, locked and well pounded on. One of them asked me how I got my station wagon so far back in the s***. It was a fun day.
station wagon?!?!?

LoL the only wheeling in my area is illegal wheeling or the bumpy dirt road to your camp site. Other then that you have to travel AND pay. Must be nice to wheel for free.

But most important is proper recovery points front and back. Don't wheel without recovery equipment as you damage the jeep trying to pull from stock points

Then lift and tires

Yeah liquid, the guys in the Sams were joking around. Called my jeep a wagon. It did look rather large next to those little crawlers. they were nice and it was all in the name of getting muddy. I personally call my jeep a truck though.

It's always a strange classification... so many Jeep guys insist their vehicle is NOT an SUV, but a Jeep. Others call it a truck, I mean we have everything truck-like except a frame. One of my personal favorites is "Manwagon".

On the subject of wheelin, im always worried that im going to tip over. Has anybody got any pictures to show how much of an angle a wj can drive on. Im going to lift it 3-4'' soon too, will that help or make it more likely to roll?

A friend of mine once said: "When you get REALLY SCARED, you have another 10 degrees of side slope before it rolls"

Lifting will always make it more likely to roll.
