A couple of clues something bad was going to happen. 1) The bra, 2) the high revs backing up (like he was at a dragstrip), 3) his approach was way too far to the right and he braked too much during take-off. Having said that, I hope those guys were o.k.. Poor Jeep.

Hey i want one of those things also! ha, i took that trench again yesterday after driving my jeep slanted up some tall dirt curbses for the feel of it leaning and confidence. I got out at some points to see how much i was really leaned over. It seems like alot when your sitting down, but when you look at the jeep from the back its not so bad. I guess how you read that scale is 3x10=30, so your at 30* which indicates danger because its red? Anways where did you by that? ebay?

I got it for Christmas years ago, but they're available all over. I've never used it as a safety item; it's just fun to watch... Actually if anything it's probably more dangerous because I like to see how far into the red I can get it.

I drive sand dunes out at glamis in CA. In 2 wheel drive cars as well as my jeep. If your manual with 4 wheel drive, 4 Lo in first or second feather the brakes. Never tried off roading in an automatic.

The big trick is to stay just in front of the slide but never exceed a safe speed. In sand and jeep this balance is very tricky, one wrong cut at the base of a hill and you can flip. You can also try going down at a soft angle, so your not traversing straight down face of a mountain if there is safe space.
