Next set of pics consists of a rocky climb to a hill temple. On the way out of the trail we came across a couple of parallel gutters, 2-3 feet deep at most, we had some more fun before we hit GQ-NH7.

^^^ You guys do this every week or what? Lucky!

Maybe am wrong here, but guys were you checking articulation in these pictures? why are you trying to attempt obstacles taking cross axle approach. Its risky and puts unwanted strain to vehicles.

Oh the gutters?? I learnt it from some TV show, IIRC the Landcruiser school of off-roading, thats the only way to cross a ditch/gutter correctly, else you will surely get stuck. See these vids from last year, Giri Tirumale sir and Dwarak came down for a recee...

Successful attempt




Got Stuck



Successful





I learnt never to put more than 1 wheel into the ditch/gutter at any point of time.The jeep/vehicle is best left with 3 wheels outside. I agree on the 'stress' point, but isnt the whole hobby itself; on the jeep

Arre babaa what am saying is the gutters where you guys were attempting, they dont require one tyre at a time at all. EDIT: Even the rock approach you guys are attempting diagonally?? Thats why the question?

EDIT 2: I saw the full video from this time, at the middle i think its deep, first time i switched off since i though its the same shallow stuff.

This one you just posted is very different.

Rock, yes, just to see at what point the jeep will do the doggys 1-leg lift. That was pure arti test, but the todays vid, at least the last part needed the 1-3 wheel technique jaggu, probably not captured in the VGA camera, but nearly got stuck and lockers brought me out there...

I think we posted simultaneously, i had edited after watching the full video ^^^ Yes second half you need to attempt carefully one leg at a time, trick i see is to ensure one leg in but with minimum sway. Good one!
