No photo, but right after I bought my TJ I was going up a step climb in Colorado that required 4-low and there was a drop off behind me, and the 4-low popped out, and then again, so I had to hold the lever in place to keep it in gear. I first thought there was something wrong , but thanks to JF I was told to adjust the linkage.

My scariest would have to be a river crossing. Out on an old military base, saw signs saying "4x4 tactical vehicles only". Did on stream crossing no problem, wheeled around, etc.
Came to another stream crossing that looked nearly identical to the first...but something was off. My friend says "dude, it's the same one, just go." I questioned him a few times and he called me an idiot, so...
Into 4Lo and off we go. Front end just sinks! Luckily I had good forward momentum, water was running up over the hood, fan was clapping in the water, etc. JUST made it out, water marks up to the door handles.
SOMEHOW I didn't hydro-lock! Thanks god. Hahaha. Never listened to him again.
this isnt too bad, but its fairly narrow and there are trees on both sides. its steep enough that it would be very difficult to walk up. earlier in the day another member tried it in his CJ5 and broke his frame, and the output on a dana 300. so i had reason to be nervous
