@ Rojan , It doesn't look like you are aired down much... I've found that to be the single biggest improvement to a vehicles off road capability. You might want to try that next time you are out (provided I am right). RC is a good place to do this since they have a really nice air-up station.

This trip was for MrsRojhan, not me. The guide wanted us to stay fully inflated for the first half the the trip. The 2nd half, I dropped down to 18.

I am impressed with RC, though.

She still cleans up nice.
MrsRojhan nudged a small tree out of the way on the passenger/front, but it was almost entirely on the plastic and you have to look for the scar.

It's hard to see in the pics, but there was at least one real hit there. The marks are actual gouges in the sliders, not just scrape marks.

This last trip I had to choose between shooting video or stills.

Choose no longer! Although, I may end up using a different video camera. The one I tested with is too wide-angle.

Not enough flexibility (zoom, primarily) or quality (lens/sensor), so another do-over:
