Thx Neo......this brought back some interesting memories LOL... but.. seriously, this vid is only a slight smell and not a really good taste of what
this beast can REALLY do; spending 9 years as a 13 Bravo, I'll post a couple of stories for ya.
On training up in Yakima WA, super hilly area and in convoy, someone had the idea we should take the shortest route.........LOL.. yep .. our XO, smart
guy actually, needed to get a spot A in shortest amount of time to make surprise displacement.
Finding ourselves at a near 60*+ degree side of a hill going horizontal at that.....I had my right foot up near the window bracing to roll over, this
went on for almost 30 mins; and we weren't creeping either LOL .. 2nd gear I believe .. but.. we made it LOL talk about good times afterwards, us
chief got together and laughed and talked about that for awhile.
vertical up hills, yea.. I've had a few, some I swear in a normal truck, definitely would have gone backwards, in creeper gear, another 60*+degree up
hill, not a issue, scary but, not an issue.
I've ran through LARGE creeks that water flooded out ankles, and still make it .. LOL..
I wish I could have taken a vid of some of those times..
