    Outside of the Jeep and watching, the allowable angle allowance is much greater. Inside the Jeep, any tilt feels like you're going to roll the fucker.

    In other words, if it's that tippy, get your passengers out of the Jeep.

    You have to be careful with having a "magic number". That is in perfect conditions, everything even, no bouncing, no sliding into a hole or rut.

    I don't have a fancy meter, but checking the angle on some of my pictures, I have been near 40+ degrees in some.

    Not sure how much more it would go, and again, it depends on the situation.

    The 24 degrees you show could cause a problem if you suddenly slid into a deeper rut on the low side, but if everything is even, it would be no problem.

    Many things can have an effect on stability, like cargo, passengers, tire size, tire pressure, shocks, lift, wheel offset, spacers, added accessories like bumpers and rock sliders. Basically anything that changes the way it came from the factory has an effect, some for the better, some for the worse.

    Always trust in the ass meter. As stated above, there are a lot of factors that affect the exact angle, but when your ass says, "stop it - this is fucked up" that's too steep of an angle

    I was just out at redbird SRA. There were a few trails with side angles of ~20 degrees and forward slopes ~45-50 degrees (Just a guess). My butthole was a little puckered (first offroad experience). My girlfriend was scared for her life. I came on WAL today to see how close we were to tipping. Doesn't look anywhere near the tipping point. THanks for the useful info!

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
