    Down hill and then had to be rescued from sinking in mud. Awesome.

    Honestly though, it is pretty good that it kept upright. Imagine the body damage if it had tumbled.

    Default Nice!

    I haven't really tested my LR2/Free2 beyond beach sand and muddy grass parking lots. I DID however pass an LR2 with a Warn 8000 bolted on.

    I have a feeling had I been in this Freelander going down that hill, I woulda rolled it. It did better driverless than I would have done.

    It probably blew the head gasket on the way down the hill.
