My friends swear I was about to tip over, I don't know if I believe them though...

I would doubt it, center of gravity still seems a bit low. Ive had my jeep on greater pitches than that and had a good ways before being concerned about it turning on its side. They might of felt that way considering the balance of weight from the DF wheel to the PR wheel makes it easy to rock the vehicle from the pivot point (DR and PF wheels)....

Also, that is a damn manly beard- strong work!

Nice pic! Though your friends are wrong - not even close to tipping over.

See video for example of "low center of gravity":
