I had mine at 37 deg last weekend... close to 45 deg is when tipping is imminent.

I remember seeing 28° inclines and/or pitch...can't remember which, since those were pucker moments. I reckon if riding that bleeding edge is a thrill, maybe get one of these tire covers. :):):)

I would have crapped in my jeans. Sorry, but that's scary stuff.

I was, what seemed like on my drivers door, with the wife struggling not to end up in my lap, when my screen said 25. I said this ain’t no 25, so the wife put a clinometer app on her phone and this is what we were actually at..........😳

my off road pages stops at 25 which is dangerous, I need a techy dude to check into it before warranty is up next month. More realistically though, since I know “the lift and big tires” caused it ...:facepalm: , I’ll be looking into it myself....:)
Damn, if that's the case I was right on the limit of rolling.. I did it purposely just to see when a tire would lift. So, anyone if your built meter is at 37 degrees, you're prob very close to tipping her over.

I’ve been mid 20’s a number of times and it’s always seat puckering stuff, specially when pitch is in the teens. Having a good spotter on those kind of obstacles helps. Here is a good sketchy example. I don't remember the numbers but it was fun.

Definitely pucker mode. Having a good non emotional spotter helps. I always feel more relaxed when my spotter doesn't look worried lol. Kinda like when flying in bad turbulence, I always look at the flight attendants to judge if I should be worried.

I really does have a lot to do with your specific setup.. I just know where my limits are now.

I found a Range River academy article a while ago that said something like at 15 degrees it starts feeling uncomfortable and at 25 degrees your passengers want out.
Another clue is when the dog on the high side of the back seat goes sliding into the downhill door.

My dog sure is a good sport about all of this.

it's funny how when serious offroading, dogs go from OH MY GOD the world is ending to fuck it.. I just want to hang my head out the window.

I had a friend bring his dog on a trip.. I think the dog shed half it's fur from stress but after a couple hours he was chill.

My dog cracks me up with how none of this stuff seems to bother her. I do something that tosses her around, I look back to see if she's okay, and she's just like, "Wheeee! I love to ride!" She just doesn't freak out at all. She's extremely, extremely chill.

🤣 I’m always amazed when my dogs are excited to hop in day after day when wheeling. They just want to be with us, dogs are awesome

Foofy was just "helping" me install the new spare tire bumpers. I had to take her for a spin around the block to get her to come back in the house.

That’s how it should be. I agree. If they can’t handle it, time to back down.
