Today I had to drive for 8 miles on a dirt road to get to a hike.... I figured I might as well have some fun on the way (other than getting sliidewayyz).

lol.. true, not a jeep forum.

That thing you're doing is displaying the suspension articulation. It's partially due to spring rates, sway-bar stiffness & available travel.

Now this is 'flex' so-to-speak:

What would be cool is to have seen you drive up that slope further and see that front left and rear right wheel in the air!

Awe yeah.

I was trying to, but my summer performance tires didn't grip well enough in the dirt to pull me up the hill any more. I'll throw my winter tires on next time [:D]

lolll. funny pics.

My friends s4 on stasis gets on 3 wheels with less steep shit though...is it his sway bar that is doing that?

I did something similar just outside of Chicago today. I missed the entrance to a used car lot, so I took the alternative method = curb, ruts, drop-off, bent exhaust tip, some good LOL's and a happy driver.

haha, thats cool. My SHO will pull the rear wheel off the ground on driveways with a decent incline. Gotta love stiff [:)]
