Re: My 2011 Jeep Overland Hemi in 4 Low skid plates climbing

Was the camera tilted? :P Without compensating for possible camera tilt, it's going up a 45 degree angle. Can a JGC actually climb up that steep an angle? In dirt?

This reminded me of the Hummer H1's grade climb rating, which is supposedly a 60% grade. A 60% grade is about a 31 degree angle.

Anyways, very cool little clip, it's obviously "steep" regardless of the numbers.

Is the air suspension lowering the front end during that climb?

I'm losing it. I thought it was an RC car at first.
