Accidentally caught some air in my Trailhawk at Jawbone Canyon.

40 seconds into the video. All of our camping gear flew from the cargo area over my kids heads. My Daughter got hit in the head with her razor scooter but not hard enough to leave a bump. Everyone was fine and so was the Jeep. I learned to not go over 10 MPH on such a steep incline. It bounced a few times before I could stop her.

It was. Perfect. Plus it was a weekday so only a few people there. Also they were filming a new Lamborghini so I got to drive right by it on the paved road.

I do it every time I leave the house. I've got a road behind my apartment that dips then jumps back up one car length or so. Hit it at 35mph and I'm good. Hit it at 40 and I'll pull the front tires off the ground an inch or so. So far haven't broken anything. I do it a few times a week with a nearly 6000lb Cherokee lol.

Actually I have used cargo securing net in the rear of my past Jeeps when the load approached the rear seat height.
Kind of like what came with my Limited across the back to keep things from falling out the rear when the lift-gate was opened.
This one just secures across to top of the load to keep things contained. Was great for those camping trips and rough roads.
Of course even in urban traffic of today it comes in handy.

This ^^^

I'm a HUGE believer in strapping EVERYTHING down in a car. Especially when offroading.

I once rolled up on car accident (just a rear-ender at maybe 15 MPH tops). The driver of the car that did the rear-ending needed serious medical attention when his lunchbox/cooler struck him in the head after the impact.

I have a deck/shelf type thing in our JKU where I keep all our tools and parts in bags underneath. The top has L-Track rails that make securing things on top really easy. I haven't figured out exactly how I am going to make this for the KL just yet, but I want something like it very badly. If not, I will at least get a dog fence thing to keep things in the rear of the KL.


OP - Glad everyone is okay.... but based on your music choice you may have a head injury too. LOL (joking)

I usually bungie chord everything but we were in a hurry to pack up that morning. My Son had to be at his school at 2 pm that day. We were camping at Lake Isabella so we only had about 2 hours to offroad at Jawbone.
Another lesson learned. Tie the stuff down. Safety first. If you are running late, OH WELL. SAFETY FIRST. Luckily my daughter has a Recaro car seat. They are German made and have 5 point harness and are built like racing seats. It goes way up over her head so the scooter probably hit the car seat first and then fell a few inches onto her head. She is a REAL cry baby. She flops onto the floor and pretends to hurt her hand or head whenever someone tells her no or reprimands her. She might not have even got hit. Maybe the jolting made her cry.

I go too hard in it though... I should buy another sandrail or a cheap Wrangler so if I roll over I don't total a $36,000 vehicle. I am going to Calico Ghost Town and Mine and staying in a cabin for 2 nights starting tonight. ($50 a night, don't tell anyone) It is near Yermo and Barstow, California. There are some EXTREME rock trails near there I wont be able to touch. There will also be TONS of trails I can.... Unfortunately it is illegal to hill climb there because some of the hills have hollow sections from mining and you dont want to cave into an old mineshaft. The rock trails are about 10 miles from where I will be. These Calico mountain trails lead all the way to Las Vegas. There is a Military base (Fort Irwin) in the way though, so I don't know if it's possible to pass through without military clearance.

Try the raingler cargo mesh designed for the KL about $95

I'm still using an old light wt Ford net but it would never hold my axe shovel chains and come along in even a 30mph head on or a winter slide off the road the raingler and a cdn mil spec harness sure would do the job though. On my get around to it list.
