Probably not in 4L to control his speed going down the slope too.

Gotcha. The way you had worded it made it seem like you were making fun of a guy for wheeling too hard and at the same time making fun of other Jeepers in nj for not wheeling hard enough.

And I hear ya... the guy must have a big ol set of cajones to try that one.

What are you saying?

By the looks of things his jeep wasn't completely stock. He had to have some kind of lift to get those 35" MTs under there.

I live in jersey too, drive a jk, wheel whenever I get the chance. I still see the moms who got them as a soccer mom vehicles with 4wd to help them in nj snow that they can still take the top off and have fun in in the summer time... I don't judge. Not everyone buys a jeep to wheel it.

Don't hate on fellow Jeepers in your own state. Driving a jeep is about being part of a community of fellow enthusiasts whether they got it to take it off a cliff at a ski resort or got it to drop off fertilizer. You sir, will NOT be getting a friendly jeep wave from me.

Bustedstuff Looks like they've found a way to kill a Jeep.

According to the resort, double diamond. East coast double diamond, and the double is usually moguls, but none-the-less...

Lucky kid, foolish dad.
