There are an extraordinary number of Landy's on the wall of shame.

There was an Isuzu pickup that also did it just after me. He did it with ease.

It is not recommended to do this obstacle without a rear diff-lock. I was taking a chance with the traction control.

Hi Saxj, only just realised you live in South Africa :-) Have you got any videos of your climb??

EDIT: When you say it was risky with TC on. What do you mean? As in it could knacker up the system or?? Thanks.

RESPECT.

On a slope that steep, if the TC takes too long to kick in on the cross axle, the car will roll back. Any rearward momentum is very undesirable, as the tyres won't get purchase, causing the vehicle to slide, as can be seen in the video with the Landy.

Victors (Saxj) videos on YouTube have been some of the best around. He/you pushed the limits more than most and showed us the true capabilities of the new Jimny.

So a thank you victor.

If you read the blurb for the defender video, his front diff had failed.
