    Default Wheeler lake, half open

    Good thing I ditched the side exhaust. Not a scrape today, but if I had those side exit exhausts on I don't think they would have survived this obstacle.

    I worry about that with my rig. It's super tippy. Far more so than the Rovers. I'm going to experiment with disconnecting the sway bar although other Benz owners say that they roll more often off-road with the sway bar disconnected.
