Post up your pics of the little ball on the dash with the most incline.
Let's see who has gotten their FJ the most vertical or the most on it's side without rolling.
I don't have any. I don't take pictures when i am driving and my co pilot doesn't know how to take pictures, he is a puppy. (see avatar)
Plus there aren't any steep inclines at the mall where i drive :lol:

Here's mine. Not the greatest incline, but decent.

It's a good start.
I have seen mine past the 30 when i was going down hill one time. i was held in the seat by the seat belt. Not a "wanna grab the camera time". More like a "this is flipping sweet" time.

De Ja Vu all over again.

I slid until I hit a spot where I wasn't sliding. Then I snapped the shot. I went down that slope about a half dozen times today. The pucker factor was astronomical the second time... it was higher the first time.

I see you're from near Corpus Christi. Spent a bit of time there and in Falfurrias back in like '87. I was working for HALO-Flight at the time. Nice area, I may retire there shortly.

You do that and I'll show you where I hit 30 down bubble.

Is your avatar legit? How come the white line is near the 20 deg mark?

You guys must have really big
:wave:
Please tell me no one on here drives an FJ with those on the back. Those belong on the back of a ******* driving a F-250 with mud terrains on just the rear tires.:bigthumb:

So 30 horizontal and 30 vertical is the most so far i see. Good stuff.
How funny would it be if marked at the very top of the ball when you go past 30 and little phrase is on the ball that says "too far, your done son!"

I was playing on a rock pile in Illinois when Tim decided to see how scared I could/would get. Pegged the darned thing on the downhill, only 20 degrees on the side.

At least when he handed me the camera and nonchalantly said, "Take a picture of the clinometer. You can send that to your mom."

I weren't sceered. :worried:

Right! :scared:

Oh, and this was our very first event on the first year's Trail Teams tour.

I've done better than this but the camera usually ends up sliding up under the dash.
