    Looks pretty tame to me. Didn't even look like you were close to tipping it.

    you know what i watched it again, and i don't think there was much more it could do, rear right wheel was off the ground, definitely stroked out the suspenstion all the way . . .

    i think its hard to show how steep it is in the video also though.

    I have done a lot worse with Toyota 4Runners and my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Chevy Blazers are pretty decent too.

    If you ever make it to MN, drop in, we can go 4-wheelin and go get some pictures. I often will toss the tent and sleeping bag into the truck and head out for a weekend. Some places I don't go unless there are two vehicles. Safety in numbers.

    Either way. even yours has a pucker factor to it.

    That's a wonderful way to learn what your vehicle is capable of doing, and learning WHEN to really stop and go back or try something different.

    Pretty crazy how much worse it feels from the driver's seat.

    I drove my 94 4Runner through the same stuff a Blazer was stuck in and pulled him out with ease.... in 2WD.

    I guess that's what happens if you take a pavement princess out of it's parking lot. Just kidding of course.

    Anyways, that's not almost rolling it, I do that all the time to test my flex. These are really bad pictures though, they are from days before my DSLR.

    The spot where this picture was taken had 1-2 wheels off the ground almost the whole way up. However, the person taking the pictures just took them at bad times. :)
