    Are they both gone? I'd be interested in one for my 2A.

    These gauges are cool, and I used to have one.
    I have two questions to all those using one...
    What is the critical angle that a CJ5 will tip over?
    How close to to that number do you feel with safe operation keeping in mind that a bump or rock could throw you into the danger zone before you realize it?
    Thanks!

    Looks like a fun tool, however I have never rolled a jeep when that would have prevented it. The roll overs (3 of them) all happened very quickly when the situation developed very quickly without warning when I least expected it.

    MB/GPWs are suppsoed to be capable of a 65 degree incline and a 50 degree side slope if I remeber right. I'm sure the 2s and 3s are similar.

    That sounds about right. As a kid my brother had an old beater 2A. It was stock height and had poor mans lockers, some sort of wide low profile tires that had a tread width of about 11 inches, and we ran a full set of tire chains year round. He would traverse steep ground where I could not believe it would go without tipping. I often would not ride with him and would get myself and the dogs out and follow on foot until it looked safe.
    We then got a 53 CJ 3B, it was noticeably more top heavy.
