urban obstacles
Where the average person merely sees a bridge embankment, a Jeep owner sees opportunity.  Everything has the potential to be an obstacle when you’re behind the wheel of your Jeep.

It’s not everyday you get to hop in the passenger seat of a living legend’s Jeep, but that’s what happened when I grabbed a ride in Off-Road Hall of Fame member Curt LeDuc’s Skyjacker JK today at the Bestop trail run at Area BFE. It was a very full house today at Area BFE, as multiple trail runs were scheduled for the off-road park just outside Moab. Luckily for us, Bestop invited us to join their run and we were the first on the trail.

Thin Ice
Sure they say that the ice is plenty strong.  But are you willing to risk your Jeep Wrangler sinking to the bottom of a lake? Apparently this guy is!

Reverse Rock Crawling
Pretty much anyone can pop it in 4 LOW and crawl up an obstacle, right? How about doing it in reverse? When this guy is done giving a clinic, he throws it in reverse and rock crawls like it’s no big deal.

Flex Friday
Slow and steady wins the race. This guy is the picture of finesse as he navigates his rock crawler way through this obstacle in this epic Flex Friday video.

2017 Jeep Compass

There’s plenty of evidence to support the claim that the 2017 Jeep Compass is the most capable compact crossover on the market.

Wrangler Rollover
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.”

Off-road Fail
We all have those days that we’d prefer to forget. The next time you get yourself in a little over your head, just think about these five off-road fails and how much worse these people must feel.

Overland Camping
For some people, “camping” includes turndown service, WiFi and a free continental breakfast with a view of the mountains. When we think of camping, it doesn’t include electricity or water hookups.  These amazing overland camping photos illustrate exactly what comes to mind when we picture going camping.

Jeep Waterfall
Sand Hollow State Park is known for having some of the craziest off-road obstacles on the planet, and that’s on a day when it’s not raining. This Jeep Rubicon walks right up this obstacle turned waterfall on Milt’s Mile as if it were dry.
