I love it!
I've done the same thing. There is this one "T" intersection where anyone who turns left holds everyone else up.
I was stuck behind 4 or 5 cars, waiting on a truck to turn left. To my right was gravel, dirt, mud but an easy cut through - if you had a jeep. I looked at my husband, he looked at me and said go for it. So that's just what I did. Put my jeep in gear, and went over everything, then pulled out into the street and took off while everyone else was left waiting.
I LOVE MY JEEP!
