Ouch, glad they made it through that unharmed. Man, it's not my Jeep, but I feel for the owner.
It did seem like "all she's got" was a lot more than what was expected...

Wow! Awful to see a beautiful Jeep get destroyed like that. Seemed like they floored it. Glad nobody was seriously hurt.

Hey, at least they drove it out of there in the end and no one was hurt.

Easy for me to say, but ... I don't get why he stayed in it after he cleared the dip.

He probably was pretty inexperienced and, if so, the spotter should have warned him to take it easy and throttle down quickly because, I dunno, he was ligned up straight into a sharp drop off into a deep creek bed, and had to make a sharp left turn to avoid that coming out of the crevice. Also, IMO, he should have had no trouble traversing that crevice at low speed to begin with--and in first gear. Flooring the pedal is rarely a good idea when offroading, especially when you're near a dangerous obstacle or drop off.

Last time I went off road I was told:
Go as slow as possible and as fast as necessary....

He didn't need to go that fast....especially through such a small patch of mud

Just seemed like a bad idea to cross something with such a large drop off on the sides.

Also agree that he probably could've gotten over that at very low speed.

Damn shame. I hope his insurance is paid up.

yeah i was looking at that opening shot, trying to figure out how he was possibly going to flip it. I'd hate to see this guy in the snow, or in the rain, or in traffic. Really anywhere where the driver should be paying attention.

Bad driving/spotting or not, that's some scarey stuff. I do love that the occupants walked away mostly unharmed and that the Rubi was able to drive out.

Agree that there was never ANY reason to use that much gas in this situation. With the terrain and height of the dip, even a stock jeep could have crawled up that in 4H or especially 4L and with only steering wheel turning. When the camera guy said "when you get to 2nd, give it all you've got" I cringed.

Inexperienced driver. I think when the Jeep dipped down and suspension bumped, he freaked out and kept pedal to the metal.

Glad everyone seemed physically okay. I'm sure mentally scarred for life.

Question:
Would insurance pay for something like that?

depends on the insurance company ,,, or how good the owner can lie... here in mass the insurance company's do not have to pay,, reason being , you and you alone caused the damage,, think of it this way ( as explained by my insurance company) if you get mad at your wife and take a hammer to her car,, we're not paying.

Should. Depends on the insurer though. I actually had called mine yesterday to ask that "If my jeep were perched on top of a large rock, and rolled down, into a tree, and then fell off into the river, am I covered?"


yes. But generally only the first time

Fine, but just don't video something different or you'll get caught committing a thing called "insurance fraud," which is not good.
