    I mean awesome recovery as usual...and that was a steep slope. Would airing down the jeep not have helped? I mean it had that roof top tent to help with it's center of gravity :)

    The weight of stuff on the roof rack doesn't help the situation. Just makes the Jeep top heavy.

    I couldn’t figure out how to send your channel a direct message for a suggestion lol. So I thought I’d just drop a comment on the video that made me think of the suggestion haha. Anyways, have you thought about adding line locks to your brakes? You could use it as an emergency brake on steep hills or when winching. Let me know what you think.

    still amazed by what stupid people will try to do with stock or mostly stock tires/vehicles. If you are doing serious off roading they need to be set up for it. I guess it gives Matt job security.

    You gotta turn the traction control off on them things, if there is no button then look for a fuse to pull for it, and if there is no Fuzse for it then its tied to the abs system pull that Fuse. One of those three options will disable the traction control, same concept in the sand it can screw you over.

    Need to turn the cameras level with the horizon… rotated my iPad at 8:44 until the horizon was level and Jesus that’s ridiculously steep… the jeep is almost directly below him straight down… a gimbal mount that keeps the camera level would probably show this type of terrain better…

    I don't get it. I have made other comments about jeeps in the past and people hate. I'm not talking folks that have a "real" jeep and know what they're doing, I'm talking cheese d****s like this that take a Jeep that is a piece of crap and think they can go on terrain that, for one: can't handle the terrain, and two: The operator can't handle the terrain, but, because the weenie has a "Jeep," he/she thinks they have business where they are at. I'm a side by side driver and come across these idiots all the time. I respect my Jeep counterparts because they may pull me out of a jam, but these idiots need to educate themselves of the capabilities of their "Jeep" before they venture off on ridge lines like that (or analyze how big they THINK their nuts are). Love the channel, have been away a while. Gonna binge watch with beer.
