Rubicon Wrangler Driving Offroad In Afghanistan Mountains!

Rubicon Wrangler doing some serious work in some mountains of the middle east. I dont know how they got this car over there, but its really doing a good job of displaying American Offroad ability.

Here is the video: Off Road Jeep Wrangler Unlimited rubicon | Ultimate Street Videos, Car Reviews, Car News

I think the Wrangler Could easily keep pace with a Hummer in these conditions.

Yeah, until it gets hit by a pressure plate IED.

True. Even my river raider skids would fall way short there.

He's driving too slow. Everybody in the middle east drives "inshallah" (God's will). They drive like bats out of hell, with no regard for other drivers or pedestrians. Scariest place I've ever driven was Saudi Arabia.

Plus, you have the whole IED thing going for you.

No kidding. I was watching a video the other day of a hummer driving through the streets of Iraq and if the other cars did not get out of the way the hummer gave them a "get the he'll out of my way" bump. Even hopped the median and went against traffic. I wish I could do that stateside sometimes.

I wonder how many people here know what the "Saudi Sweep" is? Probably called something different in other countries.

Basically, somebody making a left turn from the furthest right lane, or vice versa, when the light turns green. My best was 7 lanes. Not me making it. Just watching.

Hahaha yeah, a 180mm round would definitely cave those in. On our m114s we used in iraq, there was about 2500 extra lbs of steel attached and sometimes that didnt do the trick.

Come to Brooklyn. The only thing stopping people from crossing 7 lanes, is that there aren't any 7 lane streets!

Is there any lift on that Jeep?

It looks like 2" + some 35's.

Too bad the photographer didn't show more of that wrangler trying to pull the pickup out of the mud! If he had turned it around...instead of trying to pull in reverse, probably would have made it!
