That's what to much lift will do for you. That's why I'm running 37's with 2" lift

Follow-up Post:

After seeing it few times I really think he needs to go over his suspension setup.

It's not any of that. A 6in lift and 35's arn't going to cause that. Bro needs to learn how to drive! The only equipment change that would have helped him there is a bigger WARN sticker.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Like an armchair quarterback, its always hard to judge someones boo-boo when you are not there to see it first hand, but personally knowing that exact spot on that trail, I am with David on this one.. that was not equipment, it was a bad line going down.

Well, my take on it was the same as David's. You see his buddy go wide to the right, with a spotter, and he's good to go. It seems to me he lined up all wrong on a drop lik that.

But your right CVC. Armchair quarterbacking is easy.

The reason I said that is b/c it went belly up way to fast plus his truck bounced funny the whole time. Oh well better luck next time.

Is this poison spider mesa trail?

Must take before and after pics now. What do you do if you drive your rig to the trail though? I guess in a 90 from VA to Moab I should trailer (If I can ever get there...A man can dream though right?).

Get a spotter. A stock Series Land Rover or Range Rover can make it up and down the obstacle in the first post with no incidents, but almost any truck would tip over going the way he did. Poison Spider should not be a roll over trail if you have someone guiding you through.
