What kind of tires do you have on your Cherokee. That hill looks easy enough

Did you air down and changed your dial to Sand/Mud?

Nosing down is always bad did you hurt your baby?

Looking at that third pic it's a little tough to tell... but with the nasty dip in the middle, I'm not sure the TH would have done any better...

I kind of have to agree...that's quite the dip in that hill...momentum and damage are the only way to get over that in a KL I think

Left wheels up on the ridge and go up diagon ally -- course that would tear up more of the hill, so probably not the best idea for minimizing footprint... Anyway.
