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.
It probably doesnt help that the rollover vid is of them going down the more gnarly line as well and that spotter makes me cringe everytime I watch the video

Casotakar1229 yea, I bet that is quite a rush not being able to see anything over the first part...

Raziel 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.

MrAugie 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.

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.

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