urban off roading WTF???

hey for all you offroad nuts out there i got a pretty funny one for you guys. ever do any urban off roading? the other night 05F150 and i meet up at the local starbucks, i had to use the bathroom so i went behind a building. So we drove behind and found nothing but lots of fun obsticles. i actually got to flex my stock jeep over some speed bumps and what not. the best part was this huge hill between two stores that i just had to climb. due to my lack of know how to post videos. i will be posting the video later. but as for urban offroading, ITS IS SOOOO FUN!

C'mon, give your stocker more credit than that. Wit hmore time you'll see that even a stock suspension is somewhat capable. My wife got her cherokee (stock sus.) airborne over a decent size hill, and I have gone up sh.it that broncos have gotten stuck on (also stock sus.)

(but glad you had fun; any pics?)

i almost rolled my old yj in the mall parking lot crawling up loading dock stairs. we broke my friends front axle and blew out 3 tires in his ford jumping a snow pile, got about 10' of air, broke the windsheild to but it was fun (for me, he had to fix everything)

Nothing like a really boring Illegal wheeling video to spark the debate.

Stock, I was impressed. And I mall crawl, I very often go straight over the dividers in the college Nat. Science Facility parking lot, it's about a 3 foot grade from the one set of spaces to the opposing spaces, maybe a 45* grade, plus curbs. I did it right next to this kid in a brand new honda Civic, saw his eyes go all wide when I went the completely opposite direction he expected me to. Stock suspension, tests my ground clearance going over it too.
