that warm fuzzy feeling

Ever wondered what rolling next to a large drop off feels like? We had a little rollover this last weekend on Rusty Nail(moab). We couldnt get her running so I had to pull him back through all the Nail obstacle out to highway. The 90 pulled him up "No Left Turn" with just a strap. Fun times though. JP

Been there, done that, don't care to do it again! Mine was on Hells Revenge. Did $9000 worth of damage & drove it home.

It looks like you did it at the top of the tip over challenge obstacle. I gave it a try 5 years ago in my D90 open and walked it, gave it another try two years ago at the rally and it was crazy, I was almost maxing out my suspension and I had to lock it. Did it again this year in the Disco and again I walked it. It's a funky obstacle.

Yeah,
I missed my intended line by about 6" and you see the results in my avatar. My habit of strapping everything down paid off that day as it kept me from wearing the toolbox or the fridge. But I can report that gas station "cappucino" is hell to scrub off of the headliner...and ARB fridges continue to run at really extreme angles....
