went to the river bar

went out to the river bar yesterday with my friend and tryed out those dune graplers. but when i got back my friends finaly convinced me to trade my dad...i might like it better to..idk.. and no pix of out there just a video. this hill has a 3 foot clif on the left side and the vid makes it seem a lot less hard core....i did make my front end up 2 times but i got high centered right after. so i hit it harder the second time and had to get pulled down a little cause i was high centered. but every time i hit it and didnt make it up the left side would go up with the right but a second later it would free fall 3 feet...it was pretty rough in the cap...and we didnt get me making up it on tape. also cause i dont have that good of aproach angle i was smashing my bumper every time i went up..there was an imprint of my driver tire from spinning and then above it was the smash mark from my bumper in the wall...kinda funny. and my buddy that i went there with has this nice 1998 4x4 taco with a 4 inch camburg lift and 33 bfg muds and his tires stick out hella far so he would have been able to make it up way easyer then me (u have to use ur sidwall to climb cause the clif is kinda ) shaped from tires spinning after they fall in) but he is too p***y to do it.(he never does any thing cause hes afraid to break his truck) and the pix of the jeep and any of the hole were taken at a previous date but its just to give u an idea of how it was.

Sounds like your muffler is scratching your driveline - check it out under there if you can.. thats probably what that squeeking sound was - as soon as you start flexing

It looks like if you had a locker and a little lift you would have been better off.
