It is a deceiving hill, basically the entire thing is a monster size rock with loose dirt and rocks on top of it. It is very steep and gives you no option other than momentum to get up. The first time I tried it a few years ago I attempted to crawl it. I did not even get 1/4 of the way up.
Next time I try it I will actually air down the tires. Its 2 miles from My house and I was lazy. I think if I had Andrews 3rz I could have made it happen. On My second to last try I had It, all but two feet. Tried to crawl last two feet and no dice. Its no Joke of a hill, Has not been summited in a few years now and Many Many people have tried. I look forward to bringing the red truck over there and let him try, should be good video and entertainment. 

Andrew should have a significant tire advantage due to size and design plus more power. It looks like you may need enough power to allow you to slow down enough to avoid flying the front end and then being able to get going again. More power and an automatic might be a better combo.

It is a deceiving hill..

Yeah... videos and photos always seem lack some reality.  We have all seen videos and thought, "that's doesn't look that difficult!"

Muddy rocks and hill climbs are traction suckers.  Power to spin the tires is usually needed.  Airing way down does help a lot to wrap the tread.  With speed to maintain momentum, you can't help but get a bounce.

The best traction tire I ever ran on my Toy trucks is the original Yokahama Super Diggers.  Low profile and wide, very flexible, they worked extremely well air'd down to 4 lbs.  They had a soft compound, so not super on mileage.

This is My all time favorite.
Worked exceptional on and offroad
Denman GROUND HAWGS
Mine were 38.5x15x15
I loved them and if they still made them I would own a set right now.
I love them three times more than any other tire.

I lament the passing of so many of the old school tires.  We have a lot of great new treads, but I have not been as happy with any of the new stuff for various reasons.

The MTRw/Kevlar probably worked as well as some of my favorite old stuff but I don't like the look as well.
I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.

Getting supplies together for my next two projects.
#1 repaint rock sliders. The rocks have had there way with them. I like to make her look good.
Going to try brush on Rustoleum in semi gloss black.

#2 Diy rock lights. Ordered up 4 more KC cyclone Led lights. Picked up plenty of wire, loom, and rubber clamps.
Once lights get here I will start testing for best mounting and lighting locations.
I am extremely happy with the underhood light I installed and can't wait to see them under the truck at night.

I have one of these.

Fun fact. That is a stolen design from Bad Land Bumpers here in WA. He had them make him a bumper and one of those and then turned around and ripped it off. That being said yes they are very useful.

Yes it was. They have been in business for over 20 years now. If you know anything about the guy behind wab fab its no surprise. There is a reason he is banned from most forums.
