Holy crap, that platform puts a stain in my shorts just looking at the picture :eek:
Is that really as steep as it looks? I'll have to go out there sometime.

:tea:

I honestly can't believe he made it all the way up, but it makes for great advertisement! There was a white 4 door that tried as well, but not sure if he made it all the way or not.

I donít see why that Jeep couldnít make it up being that itís made of concrete; great traction. Just put it in 4low and up you go.

Depends if the 4-door don't mind leaving his gas tank and rear driveshaft on the breakover or not. lol :)

I doubt anything in the rear would hit because once the rear tires start over the crest it all gets elevated quickly. Now the belly of the longer wheelbase 4dr definitely will be a challenge if the lift and tires arenít tall enough; not exactly an ideal place to high-center thatís for sure.:laugh:

Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me that 4dr in the pic canít move forward another inch because of the drop hitch that is on the Jeep.

Oh yea one more thing, if you look closely at the top of that obstacle it looks to me like it isnít as sharp of crest as it seems. At the break-over it actually still has a bit more angle to it. It starts down lower than the top of the big *** pipe (canít remember what theyíre called) to lessen the break-over somewhat.

It doesn't seem any steeper than stuff at fins n things or hells revenge...?

RockyClymer 08-13-2013 12:04 PM

Ditto. Not any steeper than Kenny's climb on Fins n Things or the Launch Pad. If made out of brushed concrete maybe even easier.

Vid of a Bronco going up.

I'd have to change gears; no way my 3.73s and 35s is making that happen.

ca07wk 08-13-2013 04:55 PM

This JK has a Rock Krawler 2.5" Stock Mod, 33" Duratracs, and stock 3.73's

Also, what's with the guy driving by with the Mexican flag. I thought that was rude in the US to fly a foreign flag only??? My wife had a foreign sticker on her car and I recommended she add the US flag above it or not have anything at all. Thought it was the respectful standard, but maybe I'm wrong - probably just me being too critical.

I flew a Canadian and Albertan flag last time I was down in Moab...no one ever looked offended!

Yes, but you probably have Alberta plates on your Jeep, so it's rather obvious that you rank as a tourist. Perhaps those guys in the buggy are tourists too. I was just asking out of curiosity, because even the Italian restaurants here fly two flags; some municipalities have a "protocol" in that respect.

Sorry to deviate from topic
