please note the slow motion shot of me firing dirt directly at my son at around the 5:50 minute mark. He took it like a champ, no question.

Long story, it's my nick name from the time I was 10 or 11 years old. It's from some old movie where some people eat some poisoness food and started seeing things. But is me, Peter k.!!!

hahah , sorry Pete. I did the best I could with what I had. Unfortunately, I didn't have much video in general. Next time I picture 3-4 GoPro's on the hoods of a couple Jeeps.

I know, I am just kidding. Anyway, i was looking into maybe buying the go pro myself, but its expensive and has mixed reviews!! How do you like yours?? Any issues so far?? Worth the money??

I actually really like mine. I mounted it to my bike when I hit the trail the other day. It works great and is really solid.

Great video! At the 5:50 mark, a silver JKU high centers. Is there any methods to avoid that besides having enough momentum to drag the rear over? I high centered my JKU at Jeep Beach and a spotter hopped on my bumper. The following bump I accelerated into it, but you lose some of the control.

Yep- that was me at the 5:50. Speed is key for that spot. You can blast over.

Great video, man! Thanks for sharing!

more lift to get your belly over the obstacle.. giving it more gas is an option, but not one with out risks.. when your front tires are spinning and come in contact with the ground and stop spinning quickly, that puts a lot of stress on your components...

nice video! Excellent mesh between the audio & video, especially with the double view port at the water fording!

I can't wait to see what you do with "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath."

Yeah, get a 2 door :thumb: Its one of the few big advantages it has over a 4 door. I'm on 35's and just a leveling kit and sailed right over that mound. With that said, the off-camber downhill trails were puckering moments in a two-door but much more controlled in a 4 door. One other advantage that you get with the longer wheel base is the ability to climb steeper angles. The last mound that the 4 door went up, neither the Land Rover or I dared to do in fear of flipping over. It was really steep and the 4 doors all sailed over it.

Thanks man. Apparently the video can't be viewed on mobile devices, although I have it set to the correct resolution requirements. Its probably due to the song DRM restrictions and Youtube. Sorry to you guys trying to view it on your phone or tablets, I can't do anything about it.
