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.”
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.
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.
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.
Most of the time, when a Jeep driver feels the vehicle going over, there is rarely enough time to shift gears and save the crash. This guy narrowly avoided a rollover thanks to his incredibly fast reflexes.
We’ll never knock someone for trying something, but you’ve also got to know the limits of your equipment. If rolling a Jeep were an Olympic sport, this guy would be a gold medalist for sure.
No, you’re not watching a monster truck freestyle exhibition. This is just a guy getting a little too nose heavy while descending an obstacle. That’s probably the longest Jeep nose wheelie we’ve ever seen – nice save!
Looking for a test to separate the men from the boys? How about trying to stop and restart on a vertical incline? This rock crawling pro makes it look easy.
This dear old dad deserves an award for father of the year. Not content to merely give his little girl an out-of-the-box Barbie Jeep, he basically decided to build his own and dress it in the traditional Barbie Jeep body. This little battery-powered Jeep features a custom chassis, rear suspension, LED lights and a functioning ignition complete with a real key. This guy deserves the award for the best Jeep dad ever.
