Interesting method of checking maximum suspension drop there Adam.

That looks like high centered with a capitol H!

So....how'd ya get it down?

Rob
Someone pulled him from the back, I can't remember who it was though. There was another trail right next to it with way less of a drop. However, that is now passable for a XK. It has someone eroded since then and I believe that pa55word (If I'm not mistaken) took that hill at this year's Camp Commander VA. However, it is still a pretty steep hill.

We went out on a trail south of Chirazzo Summit on I-10 between Palm Springs and Blythe, California. The mining trail leads to the top of some mountains with mines and old buildings. As we started we met some dirt bike riders coming out. They took one look at us and said "No Way are you going to make it" Of course then we had to go on. We made the top, on the way back we started down a dead end on a wash. As I climbed up on a large rock, it broke into several pieces and left us high centered. Used the portable winch on the back receiver. First tried to use my tree saver strap on a rock outcrop in the cliff, it broke off. We then found a half buried large rock in the bed of the wash. The other fellow is Steve, a friend of ours and a retired CHP officer. The winch had no trouble pulling us off backwards. That is one of the benefits of a front or rear mounted winch.













This is the rock that shattered under the Commander and high centered us. The best way to go over a large rock is to put your tire on the rock to avoid dragging over it. Unfortunately this rock was not up to the weight of the Commander. Commander 1.....Rock 0......

i wasn't paying attention. oh-well, i like getting unstuck with the winch. i'v4 noticed the commander works great in everything except really deep mud and snow where you need lots of wheel spin to clean out the tires.

Granted, most pics were stock and I now have tires and lift. I also run with guys with 4" lifts and I like to keep up with them, and this beast usually does
