Now, that looks like a lot of fun! Nice tent! How did you get stuck? Bottomed out? or no traction? Lucky you had a wrangler there!
Do you think with better tires you would have been ok?

Great pics!

Oh, I just got stuck because the chassis is on the ground and the stock suspensions have not a big range ! lol

Maybe it was cool, it was a little meeting of a french Jeep owners forum where I am a moderator. There were a Grand Cherokee WJ 4.0 l6, a Wrangler Jk Unlimited Sahara and a Wrangler TJ.

The Grand Cherokee got stuck too ! lol

It just hit me.

You wouldn't have needed tow to get out. You'd also have a Tubo boost, so to speed fast moving Compass.
LOL .... sorry I couldn't resist that.

PS: You're right the clearance is not good for rough fields etc but the traction is excellent with the right tires. More so than the Grand Cherokee primary because the Grand does not have LSD on either axle on the Laredo line. Grass is slippery if it starts to spin.
As long as to don't break anything it good fun.

Just get up a bigger run up! You should be able to bounce up and over! Its just grass

I'm also swapping to some AT tires, need a 1/2 day off to get it done...
