my toughest obstacle is my wife. She always seems to be in the way when it comes to the Jeeps.

This is the toughest obstacle I've been on. Going down isn't too tough but coming back up gets a little tricky. I broke the main leaf of my front driver side spring, a manual hub and axle-shaft the last time I tried it.





I never did figure out how I got into that last spot (was trying to go back up the chute to the left there) but, the only tire that was still on the ground was the one with the broken shaft, hub and spring.

this silly double ledge on Prichett Canyon in Moab kicked my "la""la""la". It took a tow strap to a sami to get me up. All he did was get the rope tight and I went right up. So ya my wheel base kicked my "la""la""la" on this one. Haven't been back yet to tackle it again.

thats rocker knocker aint it paul?

and yes the locals prefer you to have 110" wheel base to try the big ledge!
i have seen a few rig flop on their lids! the hardest flop was a sniper from texas(red/aluminium diamond plate) was about 3-4' up the ledge flipped over on nothing but the top real hard! it almost knocked the breath out of the ol guy.

My biggest obstacle as well. Have not taken my waggy on anything harder than a dirt road. She needs lots of benjamins to get her where I could depend on her not to break out on the trail.

Defintiely the toughest I had done to date. I have done harder since then just not on video. This was back when I still had a little body left and 36's.

I want to see your rig on that

Here's another. It's not that tough dry but wet it becomes "la""la""la""la" near impossible. The famous Guardrail at Tellico.



when this picture was taken, it was probably 30 degrees outside, pitch black and I had no rock lights. This was, by far, the hardest I'd ever hit this. One issue with this obstacle is the fear factor. Behind you is a drop off that takes you off the mountain. Just like with an other height, don't look down.

and the vid:
