The whole reason I wheel is for the "Pucker" factor! LOL! Keep up the good work.

Not knowing is how you break things and get hurt. You should always know the capability of your ride and "have a good idea" on how it will act in any given situation....

AZ Outlaws is correct. But, even when you KNOW that you can do that hill climb, or rock crawl etc, there is still the "pucker". If I can find the picture I'll show you what I mean. On this hill all I could see way blue sky and a few tree tops. I had no idea when the top would come. I felt the need to shake out my pants on that one. But I knew I could do it. A year earlier I wouldn't try it, took the by pass.

Looks pretty hairy to me too! If you knew you could make it up every hill before you tried it that'd take the adventure out of it!

All I'm saying is: check out the obstacle first so there will be no surprises, know your vehicle's limitation and your own driving skill before you try something. When you attempt something you should have a "reasonable" feeling you and your Jeep are up to the task. I have never attempted an obstacle that I didn't think I could safely do. That's how things get broke and people hurt.

Great!! You did exactly what your supposed to do, which many newbies, or once a year weekend cowboy with a 12 pack of Bud and a 4wd don't do. Many just go full throttle and hope they make it and that is not the way it's done.
