My Jeep came with a book that specifies limits. I’m not in the Jeep for a few days but I’ll post it when I find it

I am much more tolerant of pitch than I am roll. I've been as high as 20 degrees of roll and DID NOT like it . . . especially since I was just about to get to The Steps on Black Bear Pass. It was probably all for the best, as it made me extremely cautious and SLOW once I got to The Steps. That trail will get the adrenaline pumping.

Loving all things cars, I go to a lot of car shows & did the "Camp Jeep" experience several times. On stock Jeeps (unbelievably all models from the Renegade to the Wrangler) they take you up and down a 35 degree pitch approach/departure 18' tall 'mountain', and a 25-30 degree wedge to experience roll & articulation.

Both the pitch and roll angles were pretty impressive... while I love watching what people can do with their wranglers on extreme trails, that little course that all the models can manage confirmed to me that stock is all I personally am willing to handle! ;-)
Here's a quick video I put together from when I was at Camp Jeep at the NYIAS in 2019 -
