We took the Coffieies Jeep up the back side of Stone Mountain and drove on Jefferson Davis nose one time- gotta find that video. The parachute landing at the end was another video and we have to find that too - that was 2800 ft climb up the backside.

So what you're saying is jeeps are really good for climbing up the backside of some old dude?

Thought that was just a suggestion for people to vote on. Are you going to try and claim a HMMWV can climb better than a Goat? That's funny :)
I know for a fact that I can put the HMMWVs front tires on top of a jersey barrier. I highly doubt the gama goat can do that without damaging stuff...

You would be wrong about that.

Unlike the HMMWV the Goat's drive line is fully enclosed in the tractor portion and recessed above the body in the carrier section. It could drive OVER a Jersey barrier not just put it's wheels on it.

I don't think there is enough articulation in the two sections. The area between the front wheels and the rear on the tractor section is so close together that it would be vertical before you could ever go over. You would either bend body components or break your articulation joint.

I am not saying the HMMWV could go over it either, but ..

That's why you don't go at it head on. I could always use a HMMWV as a step :)

Ok the Goats only ahead by 2. All of you folks that voted for him need to go out and find 1 more person to do the same. Your side's winning but only by a hair and it's 4th and goal in the 4th quarter. Let's move it into the end zone! (apologies for those who are not football fans).
