Rough ground ahead?

DRIVERS, YOUR SUSV CAN ROLL OVER WHEN ANGLING UP OR DOWN A SIDE SLOPE THAT'S STEEPER THAN 22 DEGREES.

WHOA!

AND THAT'S CUT IN HALF--JUST JUST 11 DEGREES--WHEN DEALING WITH DEEP SNOW!

YIKES!

SINCE YOUR VEHICLE DOESN'T HAVE AN INCLINOMETER, YOU'VE SOT TO BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN TRAVELING OVER ROUGH OR HILLY GROUND, ESPECIALLY IN DEEP SNOW.

HERE ARE FEW POINTERS TO KEEP YOU ON TRACK ...

Always cross ruts at an angle

When in doubt about the slope angle, find a different place to climb!

MOST OBSTACLES CAN BE OVERCOME IF YOU GIVE THEM A LITTLE THOUGHT BEFORE CROSSING.

USING THE RIGHT METHODS WILL AVOID TRACK DAMAGE AND KEEP YOU UPRIGHT.
