    I'm in agreement after watching a few other trucks climb it but damn...

    Yes.
    ?!?! SOMETIMES !?!?

    I would much rather be built for an obstacle than take a risk like that. A ding here, some pinstripe or a punctured tire etc is one thing... rolling your rig = should not have been there to begin with.

    She seemed to have redeemed herself.

    Still that's sketchy to do with no roll cage.

    Nail on the head.. if she was hot it would have been forgiven. Since she looks like Hillary Clinton and sounds just as obnoxious and screwed up? No Mercy.

    Oh and the wife just watched the vid and said, "Wow.. time for her to look for a new job.." lol

    Granted everyone can make a mistake or misjudge what will happen but that was painful to watch.

    I get the concept of the spotter and she was obviouly terrible , and admittedly , I'm no rock crawler , but the driver had to know he was in trouble when she kept sending him sideways on that kind of incline

    Is there a protocol for telling the spotter to fuck off if you're the driver ?

    I believe it's "Fuck off, I'm the driver!"

    Of course in hindsight its easy for us to judge, but I blame the spotter 100% b/c the driver is following instructions and doing what hes told. Of course he could have said, "nuh lady.." but he didn't know any better and was extending trust to learn to rock crawl..
