Elgin, AZ...sort of.
First one was the worst, I made it up this "road" just fine...slid into the rut about 40 yards short of flat level ground on the way back down. Munched some bodywork, and got a couple buttlerflies on my temple when the Hi-lift handle kicked back (sweaty hands) :( Jerk strap just about 5 feet, then got traction and drove it out the rest of the way after much jacking and rock stacking and shovelling. Then cracked a rib bouncing out!

2 days later, hi-center. That one wasn't so bad, just me and the jack and shovel to get out.

All Hail the HI-Lift!

Thank you very much. I'll be doing shows all week. Tip your waitresses.

Jeff

Sketchy...good to see outcome was okay.
 
Yeah, the grass on the driver's side is deceptive, it hides an equally steep drop off the road cut. Well, it was a road 30 years ago, I suppose.

Believe it or not I was really being careful, it was just very, very narrow. I would have been fine if I had a spotter, though. The way I tipped was just fine compared to the alternative.

...and, for the record, I got out of the hi center backwards, and did make it over on the second attempt. :D

Don't leave home without it

Calcium....yeah. LOL. Actually it's the cartilage on my sternum and in back. Either way, it sucks. The Hi-lift injury was 100% preventable, that's for sure. Learn from my mistake! :)

Yeah, lockers would have simplified this whole adventure. It might be time.

I have a Hi-lift bumper/body adapter, but not the one pictured. I may need to get one of those, too.

Happy wheeling!

I wasn't alone, but yes, I need some upgrades. I don't do anything over a dirt road alone. That's not too smart.
 
I just like seeing that you take it off-road
Well done.
 
I like looking at pics of "stucks", and hearing the stories. So I posted mine.

I had fun.
