Left Hand Canyon, Boulder, CO

took the jeep to a place in Boulder, CO called Left Hand Canyon..... i have never been so close to rolling it over.... i went up a rock face wrong....a little loose dirt and i was almost rolling.... i had to put a chain around a tree and hook it up to my bumper to counterbalance it.... props to my wife for holding it steady while i hooked the chain up :lol:

Um. Learn to disconnect the front sway bar, you have almost no flex.

And pick better lines.

For the record... she's better looking than you are.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Hey asshat, look into 'tree saver' straps.

Mods: please delete pics with inappropriate use of chains before they get more of our trails closed.

I didn't see where he had a chain around a tree, unless that pics already been deleted.

A couple of thoughts:

1) Damned that's a pretty wife
2) you appear to be a bit off the trail
3) My wife would never "hold my Jeep" to keep it from rolling over. She hates it and threatens to push if off our retaining wall all the time
