2014 JGC Video (Moose test/Off Road/Water Fording/Steep Snow Hill Climb

Not sure if this has already been posted before, but anyways I found this video very grasping of what the Jeep is capable of as well is it's safety manevuerability on the roads.

I've seen many video reviews and test drives, but none that really show it's true potential. Watch as this guy really puts the 2014 too the test! Whipping hard turns, driving off of deep shoulders , treading through deep broken ice/water and flying through muddy pastures!

To top it off, it was all done in the V6!! Pretty impressive!! Enjoy!

Sweet video. Thanks for posting! He's kinda nuts!
I wonder what tires he has on that? No way they're stock.

I'm betting the tires are stock, otherwise it wouldn't be a true test. Pretty cool vid. I think it was posted here (or somewhere else?) last week?

Re: 2014 JGC Video (Moose test/Off Road/Water Fording/Steep Snow Hill Climb

After I watched the vid from the OP, the one below came up. Up until the 1:40 mark, I was not impressed. There was just a bunch of obstacles I have already put my WK2 through on a regular basis during the summer. However, the hill climb just past 1:40 surprised me. From a dead stop I didn't think he was going to make it.

Its almost like they gave him the keys and said have fun, or possibly that is one of the courses that they put them through the paces on.

Possibly the best job in the world if he is supposed to test them to they fail. Kinda like this one...

Did you guys notice the winch? Looks like a nice hidden system.

This was done by a few members here including myself. You can by and RRO winch bumper cross member that goes under the plastic bumper. It's a couple hours of work and holds the winch nicely. Look at http://www.rocky-road.com/grandbump.html

Enjoy
