Amazing shots, I had a good time and it really was easy to get up that hill. You will have to burn a disk for me.

Seemed like the Wrangler really struggled, while the Commanders just kinda yawned through it. Impressive. Nice comparison.

It would seem the weight of the Commander helps it to get better bite/purchase than the lighter Wrangler, which seemed like it just wasn't heavy enough even if it had plenty of power. It was throwin a lot of dirt.

When it comes to hill climbs and such, wheelbase really has a lot to do with it, as well.

Rock on, though. Great vids.

i bet the YJ doesn't have any lockers.

you can't beat the traction control in these things, unless you compare it to a spooled up rig.

Wow ,,,, although the Wrangler is shorter and has better articulation and clearance, the Traction Control System and ELSDs did very well in the Commanders !!

I guess that Jon's Commander (the 1st one) has QD-II and Josh's one (the 2nd one) has QT-II .... Am I right ? (I'm guessing this from the performance)

For sure the YJ has no lockers. The Traction Control does a very good job in that hill, but I was impressed that it overcome the short wheelbase and light weight in the wrangler !!
