Yep I bet we all did some foolish things as kids and now look back and see how wrong things could have gone.
All the people saying skillfull driving or thats impressive. Take a stock hight TJ add 15x10 wheels with 3" backspacing and wide tires and go try this. You would be amazed at how easy it would be.
Yeah I don't see this as proof of driving skill. I use to do stuff like this in full size pick ups and my stock Samurai. Most would never believe some of the stuff I did with my lifted Sammy with 35s on it.
Part of skill is knowing your vehicles limits. Had he found a place that grabbed his tires this would be a very different video.
Now really want to impress me do it on a steep down hill about half way down.

I honestly don't care either way, last I checked our country was supposed to stand for Liberty and doing whatever you want so long as it doesn't infringe upon the rights of others. I saw no rights being infringed.
I wouldn't do it because my video would be titled "How I Rolled My Jeep On Dry Pavement Without Rocks", and frankly that is a horrible title that is way too long.
That said, us young folk (I'm 21) are supposed to do stupid stuff from time to time. It's how we learn, and if we're lucky enough we'll stay alive long enough to say "not gonna do that again" and join the ranks of the 'old folk' and then continue the cycle by looking down on the next generation and saying "those darn kids (get off my lawn!).

When you see people doing this out on the public streets with people random people. Then all the comments to him being a fool would be applicable.
