Explain This
I was just looking at pictures on Utah and saw this picture. Why does this Jeep have a wheel in the air? Doesn't look like it is even attempting to flex.


Am I missing something?

There is probably little to no weight on the front. It is not immediately obvious until you look closely, but the incline is pretty steep. That, and a little forward inertia, would loft any vehicle's wheel all things being equal.

The narrator's definition of 'creep up' may differ from most. :lmao:

My guess is the photog caught it mid bounce. They had to be moving pretty quick.

You're right, it is very steep. I guess that makes sense. But it does look incredibly rigid.

I was browsing some of the pictures in that sequence and they talked about spending hours on getting out of Bobby's Hole. Yeesh! I did it in November and it was steep, rocky, loose hill but I don't remember it taking more than 10 minutes. They said they helped walk a couple motorcycles out and it it an hour just to do that.

It's a photochop picture. They just pasted their driveway *eep pic into that hill climb pic. ;)

It's a jeep thing, you wouldn't understand

In all fairness, Yeeps flex pretty darn well. IF you know enough to disconnect the swaybar. These are recreationists, not serious wheelers. It is easy to lose perspective.

(especially when you drive an uber-capable Yota...)

Ya I know I don't understand. I love the looks I get from Jeep guys. I try not to get competitive, but when a dude rolls up in his '09 Rubicon with its 22" wheels I laugh when he gives me the "that's right my Heep can school your Toyota!" look. Laughing made him angry...
