It’s obvious from this video that the ground is pretty wet, so it’s no surprise that this Jeep Wrangler lost traction while climbing up this hill. Where the driver messed up is turning the steering wheel while sliding backwards. File this one under “what not to do.”
There are close calls… and then there’s this. This dirt bike lands on a Jeep after sailing over 100 feet through the air off of a dune. This could have gone wrong in so many ways for both parties. That’s why its always a good idea to have spotters watching the take off and the landing when jumping, particularly in the dunes.
In the last year of its run, the immensely popular JK Wrangler platform will get another special edition version for 2017 to send out the Jeep in style. The Rubicon Recon is designed to offer even more off-road capability thanks to a beefed-up front axle, and it also gets unique styling cues to make it stand out in a crowd of JKs.
It should go without saying that you never, and we mean NEVER, use the roll cage as a hand hold. But time and time again we see people reaching up and grabbing onto that bar as an extra hand hold. The passenger in his Wrangler is extremely lucky that he didn’t suffer a serious injury during this Jeep rollover. This is what not to do!

Not all thrill seekers get their kicks at 100 mph or flying through the air. No, plenty of fun can be had crawling along at just a few mph. Michael Hernandez puts his Jeep on the edge as he navigates this obstacle using every bit of bite the sidewall of his tires have.
There’s no shortage of over-the-top builds at the SEMA Show ever year. What gets lost in the shuffle sometimes are the more subtle, clean off-road builds that may not stand out with flashy chrome or 20-inch suspension lifts.
We’ve seen more than a few videos of people out and about in the days after Hurricane Matthew ravaged the southeaster United States. It seems that many folks used the excess amount of water and flooding as an excuse to take their off-road truck or Jeep places that they otherwise wouldn’t have been allowed. This guy’s plan backfired and he wound up stuck in his Jeep Wrangler. Check out how it unfolds below.
Rock crawling is not for the faint of heart. It takes lots of skill and a fair amount of courage to risk landing your Jeep on its lid. You have to know the limits of yourself and your equipment, and this guy definitely knows what his Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is capable of, as he makes quick work of the “Plan B” obstacle at Sand Hollow State Park.
