Let's cover two important matters about climbing hills in your sports utility vehicle before we embark into hill climbing techniques.

First, always stay on approved four wheel drive roads. There are two important reasons for doing so. One is that approved roads are most likely navigable by you in your SUV. The other is that when you stay on approved roads, you are not doing damage to the environment. Please always tread lightly when traveling off the road.

Second, climbing hills will get increasingly dangerous as the steepness of the hill increases and/or as your speed increases. The bottom photograph shows an SUV in a hill climbing situation that is far, far too steep for safe driving. The danger of this vehicle getting sideways on the hill and then rolling over is almost certain in this situation.

DANGER: Never take on a steep hill in your Sport Utility Vehicle. If the front end of the vehicle starts bouncing, your SUV can easily bounce sideways on the hill, thereby subjecting it to the high possibility of rolling over. Please review our section about "Rolling Over" for important details about how to avoid this dangerous situation.
