I seriously doubt that you got enough traction on a steep gravel uphill to make that happen.
Was the tire turned in the correct direction on the wheel to support that?
No they are turned in the opposite directions. The rim has turned farther than the wheel turned in the rear and less on the the front. Just wanted to add all the info I could. Rear tire is the passenger side and front tire is the passenger side.

So i guess the front slipped under hard braking had to do a panic stop with the trailer yesterday.

The only time I have used 4wd lo is on gravel or loose surfaces. I have the 2wd lo kit and use it to park my trailer.

tsconver And to add I do pull a 18 ft trailer with a jeep. It shows 17k and some change total combined gross vehicle weight on cat scales. Pull it about once a month. Have pulled it twice since last tire balance for a combine 1000 miles. Plus has to use 4wd this weekend with the trailer and jeep in tow up a steep gravel road leading into where we went wheeling.

There's a "measuring rim width" and approved rim width, which are min and max widths.
The tire's real (not nominal) measurements are given as mounted on the measuring rim width.

In other words, "recommended" would be within the approved rim width. Anything outside of that and strange things can (and often do) happen.

For those that must stray outside of the approved rim width on a street driven vehicle, by all means go with a wider wheel (within reason, of course).

No, but I could obviously look up the approved rim widths...if I wanted to.
Although I'd have to verify the width of the stock wheels, too.

But this is getting interesting, now that others are also slip sliding away.
Since I always mount my tires with the dot at the valve stem, for balancing purposes, I can easily check if any of mine has moved.
Which I probably should do.

Mine are, factory rims and factory size tires. Two of mine have definitely slipped.

If the beads can't seat correctly, that could be part of the problem.

tsconver I would have said this was not possible on a stock vehicle with stock wheels and good tires. But mine are slipping as well. Had them marked the last time I had them balanced and rotated. Guess what one front tire and one rear tire are no longer lined up. Rear tire is worse. But still. They are stock size Nitto Ridgegrapplers and I run 60psi in them.
