That looks like a sneeze would have sent you the rest of the way over... yikes.

I actually thought about that too....sooo we use your Jeep?

No I actually wouldnt mind using mine, but we have to find the right place. Its either that or do it on flat ground with a winch on one side pulling it up on 2 wheels and another one to keep it from going over...

Maybe we should practice with a newbie and tell them that its just hazing...

That's some scary $hit right there! I've had a wheel or two off the ground before, but never like that!

Gary (hwy1rubi) and I know what it's like going in the mush like that. We did a run about a month ago after a rain and it was like that. There were a few times when I slid around a bit, especially down hill. Made the hair on my arm stand up. Helps to have MT tires on a day like that. We had a TJ with rear locker and AT tires. He had to be strapped 3+ times in the early notch section.

That run will make me think twice about wheeling in mud/snow again.

Can we tip someone over so I can use my winch?
Wait...I think I might qualify for newbie hazing...I'll be quiet.

I am planning a M & G for charity (to benefit local homeless shelters). I had planned on a mud bath, Jeep wash and car crush. But this gives me an idea...a winch pull and a Jeep tip. It'd be like a Jeep amusement park on pavement. Now to find volunteers....LOL.

Think I'd watch but not participate. I can just see it now: 'oops! We didn't have the strap as secure as we thought! We'll flip you back over now....'

For those of us who are newbies, how did you get level? What technique on wheel, using lockers or not, using breaks, etc?

Agreed... I'm curious to hear how you got out of that without help!

I honestly dont know how i didn't flip my jeep. My buddy who was in the passengerseat calmed me down and i put it in reverse. I slowly started releasing the clutch without any gas and slowly turned the wheel, on the back there was a small dip that helped in getting the angle more manageable. This is how the picture should actually look.

Now that shot should go on the Calico T Shirt.
"Jeep. Roll With It Baby" or "Full Tilt Wheeling". or "Does this angle look bad?". or "Jeep. 4 X 4. Only 2 tires necessary".
"Jeep. Grounded to the Ground". (Sorry- from one of the most annoying Toyota commercials ever). "Who Needs an Inclinometer".
I could go for days.
I am pretty certain I'd crap my panties and call my momma.

YES!!! I thought it was only me that wanted to reach through the TV and slap that stupid lady. Lol

I think it would be great to have that image on a shirt, it at least deserves avatar status

Is this a new sport called Freestyle Jeeping? Looks very similar to Freestyle BMX.

If you look close Saba's Jeep is concentrating so hard on not flopping it's squinting it's littles eyes.
