My Rubi is 2 weeks old...

...so what do I do?

The squeeze

Heart attack

This thing is awesome!

Did I make some mistakes? yes. Did I lose some paint underneath? yes. Do I care? Nope.

That is nutso! I don't think my poor stock Rubi would have a chance on that. Maybe in a few years when I have a better equiped Jeep and more than one outing under my belt.

Stock rubis can do that. You don't "need" mods as much as most think.

My family comes from south Jersey, been there a few times. Flat, but lots of forested land. Very different wheeling experience I would imagine.

Desert is great, I love it, but I do need to drive up north into the mountains and do some wheeling amid the trees. That would be awesome too.

Nice videos man! I'd love to run in country like that. I get the flat woods up here mostly.

Looks like you have got the skill down. The camera man is just doing his job. We never get credit for any of these videos. There is no safe way to film crazy.

Very awesome!!!! Very good job on that. I want to have some fun with my beastie. Haven't gotten the chance yet, nor a chance to remove the tops. But, I would need to start out on some basic courses first. And then some upgrades to do the advance courses.

I like what the cameraman said, "stay straight" in that worry tone. Good job to all!!!

Do a youtube search on "Heart attack rollover". You will see what happens when someone didn't stay straight. We were discussing the vid before I went down, so he was just reinforcing the lesson.

Hardest part is just starting. You have to drive blind until you rotate enough to see down the hill. Mirror relocation brackets moved higher up the list so I can take the doors off next time.
