This rock crawler is in over his head and cruising for a bruising. Check out the video to see how it ends up.
Crossing a frozen river anytime is a risky move but even more so when spring is inching closer and the snow and ice are beginning to melt. This guy is undeterred from doing a little ice crawling despite the apparent risk. (Even if it is just an RC car.)
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.
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.
While we’d take nothing away from the event itself, you could argue that most of the excitement of King of the Hammers takes place in the days leading up to the main race when thousands of people descend on Johnson Valley to prep and wheel prior to one of the toughest off-road races in the world. This guy is putting his Toyota Tacoma through its paces, much to the crowds delight.
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.
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.
The desert is beautiful, but it can be a brutal and rugged place. It’s not somewhere that most people plan on spending much time. If you’re a Jeep enthusiast, however, the desert is exactly the type of place you want to go and get lost for a few days. See what we mean in this awesome video of a Mojave Desert Jeep Adventure.
We’re not real really sure what you call this particular format but “trench racing” seems to fit the bill, and it’s probably the world’s shortest off-road race to boot. It’s interesting to note the different strategies of the drivers in this video. Some enter fast only to bounce off the opposite wall, while others crawl off the ledge and maintain a steady speed up the other side. Regardless, our hat’s off to whoever came up with this unique and very spectator friendly sport, also known as the world’s shortest off-road race. Check it out.
