I always had a dought, Dont people know that jumping your Jeep will Damage ur Jeep.
The First car i bought was a 1952 Willys Low bonnet Jeep.
i had it for 6 years and i use to go offroading a lot.
i never made any jumps in my jeep because i cared a lot for my jeep and didnt want to damage it.

Beejay, you are always welcome to do it. BTW It was great talking to you last week. Hope to see you soon and I will prepare my Jeep/Gypsy for the jump before I come.

My contribution to this thread. Sorry could not get the landing pics.

Great Pictures, the thread will be a compilation of cool action shots from the country. Great to view and more fun to actually do it. We can also take a moment to reflect on the safety aspects of our offroad action, more importantly driver and passenger safety. I make sure that my co passenger and I wear seat belts while offroading.
It is tiring sometimes when you and your co-pass have to get down for spotting/looking at obstacles but its all worth the effort. Jumps like these can cause neck and spine injuries. Due care is always good.

Well, it's best to make up your mind whether you want your jeep to be a restored beauty or an offroad machine. Such Jumps would be towards the extremes of offroading similarly buffed and polished jeeps with once a month drive would be the extreme of restoration and preservation.
You can decide where you would like to be between these two extremes
