    Alright guys! Post pictures of your Jeep in situations where it "seemed like a good idea at the time". This could be on the trail, in parking lots, in traffic, etc. Due to the delay of a topic, posting time will be slightly extended. But enough to where we still keep this in the month of September.

    Thanks guys!

    Saddly I couldn't, didn't have enough traction on the wheels, so it was easier just to be towed out...

    I wish I had pics of when I straddled a log and ended up sliding off into a stack of downed trees...
    Flooding the passengers footwell and denting the rear door.
    There's a shot of the aftermath in the photo thread somewhere here.

    Good times.
