Curious where that would be? We used to throw a spare tire in the crack for a stockish type rig to cross on.
Congrats on JP mag feature BTW. The bypass i "discovered" out of necessity 4 years ago to get my friends comanche across. In the picture below you can see the ledge just to the left of the driver side tire. Its a small ledge but with careful spotting you can get up on it, then up onto the next ledge, then hook to the right at the right spot to clear that large boulder on top. Ive never seen anyone else do it and would like to say i found it but im sure someone else out there has done it. 4 years ago there wasnt any tire marks on it but now it looks like a few others have taken that route. This year i spotted my brother in his cherokee over that route since he didnt want to do the crack. Didnt hit the undercarriage or anything.

Ah, I've used that before for "lesser" tired rigs as well. Less angle, less drag, etc.
The other option we've used is to put the rig on the steep part (off the drivers side of the TJ pictured) and throw a spare tire in the crack for the passenger side to run across. Depends on the rig which way works the best.
(oh and thanks for noticing my cutie in the rag! Pretty cool to have both my rig, my 16 yr old driving my heep item and my 13 yr old mentioned in the article. I'd love to run a trail with Verne again. Good egg, he is.)
Ya I agree that something is limiting the flex on that silver TJ. But as far as I have hears its most likely not the anti-rock.
It was the angle at which we were coming across the crack. I have pics of me crossing the golden crack with the antirock before and it was flexing. In the picture above there was very little weight on the front at the angle he had me go, and kellerexpress might have to chime in, but iirc many guys were lifting tires that day.
Here are the said pics of my rig crossing it a few years back, again with the antirocks. If you compare the original to the second pic on this post, I crossing the crack in a different location on a different angle. I was commenting to my wife as we were coming across that the spotter had us on a weird line.
