The Rubicon has a push button electronic front swaybar disconnect feature (which if it really works is fantastic because swaybar discos on a flexy front end are a true PITA to get lined back up), but clearly even at that level things are not idiot proof.

It has nothing to do with incline. The swaybar disconnected Jeep four link front end flexes like crazy - you are never going to pick up a tire in a situation like that, particularly with the four door Unlimited wheelbase.
Based on this then, they probably didn't know enough to use the swaybar disconnects.

Here is another shot from the ordeal this group went through.

An HOUR to get the motorcycles up the hill?!?
