Traction Test

This is about the best traction test I've tried so far. I drove up this steep hill, turned 45 degrees right and stopped. I then took off again to see how much the M16s slipped sideways and if they could gain traction and pull the Jeep on up the hill. The tracks left are telling. The JK not only held onto the side of the hill, but clawed it's way straight again and climbed to the top.
