I try to crawl everything first then give a little (very little) gas if necessary. If the trail is very slippery and crowned real bad I'll just pull cable if I can't crawl it. 90% of the trail ride damage I've witnessed if from people sliding off crowned trails / hills.

If all goes to hell and I end up stopped a little sideways (like at the end of the vid) I jab on the front Mico lock to lock up the front brakes, disengage the front drive and shove it in reverse with a few quick blips of throttle to slide the back end over behind the front.

Every situation is different. With time, experience and getting use to your rig, you'll be able to adapt to what's happening..........or you'll end up continually smashing your Jeep
