Re: Do Jeeps do this?

Yep, some do, it's called a Ramp Travel Index (RTI). Usually they're larger though, that one looks kinda small...

Re: Do Jeeps do this?

The truck bed is 4' and the Coot wheelbase is 58" The RTI is WELL over a 1000

Use this formula and see

I also didn't use a ramp to get up there - My RTI is well over 1500 too

Re: Do Jeeps do this?

Hey! Maybe I'll hinge the Scrambler! That way I could have awesome articulation and have it be totally uncontrollable on the road. Sorry, just being sarcastic this early in the AM.

Re: Do Jeeps do this?

Hey Skellator how did you ever get your jeep up there without breaking the winshield in that van?

Re: Do Jeeps do this?

actually no, jeeps have suspension, have ground clearance, and are (usually) street legal. the scorpion was hinged like that a few years back.. but it has serious axles and suspension too..
