drifting
 
ok i know i have been asking some stupid questions but the one thing that i want to know is , is thereanyway to drift a jeep without tipping

jgano23 02-06-2009 11:48 AM

why would you want to do that? and probably not. jeeps have a very high center of gravity. i would recommend using a honda or toyota, or something else low.

afrats 02-06-2009 11:57 AM

^^^^x2. That's not what a Jeep is made for.

I have no response to this...

azlenny 02-06-2009 12:22 PM

is this a trick question? drifting a jeep? two words: dumb idea.

wavebacktothetj 02-06-2009 12:34 PM

Go ahead and try make sure you video tape it and post it up on the forum so we can all laugh at your attempt:banghead: ....wow some people

I will admit I like to peel out alot and slide around corners in my mustang. I tried to peel out around a corner in the jeep when I first got it and that was the last time I did it. the center of gravity is to high, I was going pretty slow when I did it I know if I was going faster I would of flipped it for sure. it is pretty unpredictable and dangerous I would not do it on dry pavement if I were you its too dangerous. Its a "jeep" not a mustang or supra.

I drift in the soft sand and mud at the 4x4 park just for fun and not long.. but make sure the ground id smooth.. or else you will tip..

But I did not buy a jeep to drift.. youll have more fun and stay legal than the rice cars 4x4ing.

X2 I'm gonna assume that this is what he meant by drifting, I doubt he meant fast and the furious style on the street.

Go easy on the guy, jeez.:D

yes you can drift, if you run a strong axle 4.88 gears and 33's. lol. i got my jeep doing donuts on dry streets with the gears i had when i threw the 33's on. but nothing over 25mph, thats just nuts

emev0l 02-06-2009 02:32 PM

Drift? No

Slide around a corner? Daily

admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery.

now put the crack pipe down and walk away.

FRESH SNOW + MALL PARKING LOT = LOTS O DRIFTIN. bone stock too

wetzie 02-06-2009 03:03 PM

I was thinking of posting a joke response about how I do it all the time, but there is always an idiot out there who will try it!:eek:
You are proof about Darwins Theory!:rofl:

I would have to disagree. A jeep can do anything. Thats what they are made for. Anything. Besides if it flips, just take a few friends lift it up and try again. I mean it comes stock with a roll cage.

Buffalo97 02-06-2009 03:29 PM

YES Drifting......Only in the snow covered streets or as previously mentioned, parking lots. Sorry I live a snow belt area near Buffalo, NY and absolutley love taking my Red Devil out of 4wheel drive and popping the clutch in 2nd gear and go sideways down my nieghborhood streets.

We have had a great winter for such activites like this but I have never even consider doing this nor does my TJ have the power to lose traction on dry or even wet pavement. MUST BE SNOW or ICE.

Disclaimer: Do not try this at Home

Yep, especially in fresh powder. It's a blast.

Sb5551 02-06-2009 03:48 PM

What about but mud terrains and the mall parking lot?

I dont mean like fast in the furious, but making the rear end kick out a little is always fun.

Sb5551 02-06-2009 03:50 PM

^^^^^^^^

wet mall parking lot sorry

skeeter 02-06-2009 04:10 PM

I wouldn't do it on anything other than ice or snow. there's simply too much stress on the drivetrain and too much chance of grabbing traction at the wrong time.

Sb5551 02-06-2009 04:46 PM

I never said I was smart. It just seems real easy in the rain with the mud terrains and the detroit in my rear thatll send power to only one wheel when Im turning.

JeepCommandoja 02-06-2009 05:44 PM

For sure i have thrown more than one hillbilly sideshow in the wrangler.

Triple88a 02-06-2009 06:02 PM

wow every one is beating the guy with a bat for asking a question you dont see around here. Relax people.

You can drift with a wrangler but you will need to lower it down quite a bit and extend your track.
