Urban Offroading - Mall Crawling Fun - Post Your Pics

With the recent accumulation of snow, I figured it'd be fun to go by the BJ's Wholesale / Bed, Bath, and Beyond parking lot this evening to have a little fun with the Defender...been too long!!

Post up pics of your "Urban Offroading" or fun parking jobs here.

Not quite what Rijosho had in mind, I don't think...but it's urban off-loading in a, "I just knocked my wife up and she's nesting" sort of way. 300lbs of baby crib/changing table in the parking lot of Cosco caused quite a stir and a lot of funny looks on the way home. I think my D90 was taller than it was long. When I added all the tough guy HD suspension and roof rack overlanding bits I didn't picture this is what "Grover" was going to be used for- but when mama comes running through the door yelling, "there's only one left at Cosco!!" you have to suck it up and do the deed! The good thing is she used to hate the D90- now she thinks it's cool.

Great photos, Jay! That ratio of height to length is definitely close.

nice load Jay! I find the rack to be the perfect fit for a full size bed. Here are some of my urban adventures. I loved scaring the guy in the Merc SLR McLaren. Last pic was by far the largest truck I have ever seen on the road... it had 36 tires and was making a left onto Houston from Broadway. it was enormous!

edit: why the heck did the images flip?

I almost threw up when I saw this thread title, but it's actually turned out to be more entertaining then I thought.

Josh, great idea. That would be a great option for teaching someone like a wife the basics of offroading. it's like a mini-LR Experience event!

I'll try to get a picture of mine next to our new M1's that are going to arrive this June. I'm "tankless" right now.

I was able to get a little higher than that second to last pic, but my gf didn't take a picture of it. I went up on the left side of that snow pile a few times, then she jumped in and I went up that steeper one until she screamed, "OK...S-T-O-P! We're going to flip over backwards!" So I backed back down it and asked her to take a few more pics from the outside. When she got back in she agreed I went higher without her in the car...and that from the outside it didn't look like I was anywhere near flipping. I said, "Caitlin, a relationship is about trust...you should have trusted I wasn't putting you in harm's way."

...she then told me to f*** off.

I think I'm going back out there tonight to check out some of the other piles.

Some landscaping with the truck the very first day I had it. I was so excited to pick up the truck that I left my Nissan behind and stuffed a few trees in the back that day.

I have done such during other winters here in va, the funny part about it is that people will follow me as I walk to the truck, when they realize Im parked on top of the snow bank they tend to give me funny looks and just drive away.
my wife does not mind, she's a good old redneck girl, in fact she enjoys showing up the other suv's by doing said parking job.

I have some other mall crawler pics. Here's one taken at Woodbury Commons a few months back. There were no spots left in the 4 lots we checked, and a bunch of trucks were parked up on the lawn, so I parked next to them. Felt like a jerk when I came back a few hours later and my truck was the online left. Made for a very quick exit though.
Not as fun as the snow bank.
