The results of under estimating an obstacle

Lets see those jeeps stuck in places you thought they would go.... Or knew they wouldn't but decided to try anyways.

Here is mine soon after i got it, and i actually made it through that little mud bog the day before. But a buddy of mine went through and got stuck right before this run, dug some nice ruts and thats what i ended up getting stuck in.

Looks like there was plenty of room to just drive around the mud hole? I typically take the route of least resistance.

With the xj over New year's. Open f and r didn't help

An easy part of the trail. Got a little too comfortable.

haha! that second video is priceless...looks like it was a pretty harmless flop at least

This stupid ledge at mabell..there was no making it over becuase of how low the stock t-case hangs on an LJ. Pretty brutal

Next time with the UCF ultra high skid it walked up it like it wasn't even there..

Done it 4-5 times before no issues, a little high on the wall combined with some softer than expected mud in the bottom.


Luckily nice and gentle-like.

LOL. If your spotter had a little bit bigger of a butt, you could have pulled it off.

Could've been a real bad day! Looked almost like you planned it. Did it fire right up and away you went?

Yep, tipped back up, fired right up, even tried same line again but tires were all muddy and it wasn't happening - took a while to fight up even the line to the left at that point.
