    and that is why I'm glad we have a relatively long wheel base. I have seen too many videos like that to make me want to wheel a jeep up a steep incline like that.

    Jeeps... "Trail Grated." :laughing:

    From the Jeep website:

    From the original Willys MB to the 2011 Grand Cherokee, the Jeep® brand has been the leader in 4x4 innovation and off-road capability for over 69 years. The proof is in our exclusive Trail Rated standard.

    We test Jeep® 4x4s on the toughest trails in the world to prove one thing: They can take whatever you dish out. The Trail Rated® badge means that your Jeep 4x4 has been designed to perform in five categories of off-road conditions: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording.


    Also from the official Jeep website:

    Traction in 4x4 is equivalent to grip on Asphalt. Trail Rated® traction helps you stay in control on untamed terrain, slippery (wet, mud, snow) conditions, and on steep grades.


    :D

    It kinda looked to me that moment could have been avoided...

    Consider this, he's already on a steep incline, he's GOTTA KNOW his front is leaving earth (if he doesn't he shouldn't be out there)


    Steep incline+ front wheels in the air+ starting to roll backwards (front still in air getting more vertical) + panic brakes going backwards,front end in the air = going over backwards.

    Didn't have to happen, he should've just let gravity pull him back down w/no braking , reposition do it again !!! oh well.....:eek::eek::eek:
