Hi, I have a 14-28 degree upward slope on my property leading to a summit where I want to build a workshop. I understand that maximum safe pitch, roll, and yaw all depend on center of gravity... So I assume that the "normal" recommendations at to slope are not so normal if I have a few hundred pounds of lumber on my overhead cargo rack? Or, 300 lbs of cement mix in the back?

So here's the question... since the slope upward is between 14 and 28 percent a "problem" with building materials taken into account?

Of course, presumably, going down, I'll just have tools in my Jeep--so the CG goes back to where it normally is.

Comments, thoughts?

Thanks!

Welcome to the Wrangler Forum dunoir,

Hopefully there are some GC owners that can answer your question.

Good Luck, L.M.

Agree worst that can happen driving directly into that slope is not able to get up the slop
Assuming your load cg is not behind the rear axle

However if going sideways to slope may have an issue

Are we talking percent or degrees - it makes a difference! A slope of 28 degrees converts to a 53 percent slope!
