Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Driving Through Afghanistan Mountains!

This video is awesome!! Some Afghans got a hold of a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and they are taking it on some really serious off road trails. The Rubicon definitely represents the US in style!

Here is the video that I found:

The Rubicon is bad as hell.

More jeeps more regulations all the good land seized by gov. I learned how to ride dirt bikes as a five year old where the yamaha plant in california now sits. Craziness..

I can't watch the video on my iPad. But I spent many months in the mountains of Afghanistan. We broke our up armored hmmwvs within 30 days. So we went and "borrowed" some 4 dr rangers we (the US) bought for the police. They were outfitted pretty well. Roll bars in the bed and winches up front. We were not kind to them and drove those damn things like we stole them, even outfitted for multiple day trips (food, water, ammo, gear).

That whole country is an off roaders wet dream, minus the insurgency. We would drive as fast and hard as we could and sometimes never got out of 4lo! Getting stuck in rivers, busting leaf springs, racing through the few high speed desert sections as FAST as possible! It was like King of the Hammers if the spectators were allowed to carry AKs and RPGs! Woo Hoo! Good times!

I had to go downstairs to my computer to see the video. That video looks like a lot of the roads we traveled on. What we consider offroading, they consider highways! I also had to plug in the external and snag a few of my pics for S&Gs.

I also have some pretty good videos, but nothing that I would want to upload to YouTube and have linked back to me.

Maybe I should go post these on a Ford forum.

Thanks for your spammy video that doesn't involve anything remotely extreme.

He was banned for posting a bunch of videos to get hits to a site he was promoting apparently. Also was pretending to ask questions about a hydrolocked jeep, just to post the link... Lame
