    Just a decent video clip...if you're on dial up you might want to avoid this one it's kinda big.

    Wow! What was he thinking attacking that at a fast pace with a short wheelbase?

    Emmetology101 was telling me about a time where his carrier kept him from going over. Sheesh!! I'm putting one on mine [​IMG]

    Whoa! I wonder if that guy needs to change his pants.



    There's no situation in life so tragic that I can't look back on it and laugh, "Ha ha! Glad that didn't happen to ME!

    Well I figured I was missing something cool so I clicked the link and let it go while I surfed around some. I had my back to the puter when all of a sudden I hear voices and strange sounds behind me. I almost crapped myself before I remembered I had that video loading, and it was playing!

    It was a kool vid tho!

    Obviously that hill is steeper than it looks on the vid, but to me I was wondering why he didn't try one wheel at a time. I think that Jeep would have enough flex to climb the ledge one wheel at a time...

    It was a cool video though.
