Just so proud of my little Sidekick I had to post! A few weeks ago my hubby tried to follow my Kick in his Sami up a steep creek bank starting with a sharp turn at the bottom. He couldn't make it and I had to tow him up. Just got back from taking my brother-n-law and his brand-spanking new Jeep Rubicon up the same trail. Had to tow him, too! All I got is 235/75s locked in rear! That Rubicon sure was pretty, though!
Just had to brag! All too often, its me gettin' towed!
Maybe the Jeep owner didn't know how to use air locker buttons?
Tonight I went wheeling with a Rubicon, he tried to crawl through some deep and thick mud, and got stuck deep.. I tried but couldn't get him out. We had to call in another Jeep with a winch. I told the guy not to try it, he said, "I'm not scared" [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Some bad drivers could stick even the most perpaired rigs given the right conditions. I went on a snow trail ride with a mixed bunch of 4x4s and the Hummer I thought would be walking the trail gave us the most problems.
Well, it was the first time he'd had the Rubicon off road, but it was kinda funny cause he got it stuck shortly after explaining and demonstrating to his wife what lockers were and how they worked!
The trick to making it up the hill I think, was making the turn at the bottom. Back end of my kick always wants to hop around anyway. Sometimes it works for me, stead of 'ginst me!
