Sick call of duty jeep at my appartment complex today. 50" LED bar across the windshield, and it had their little SR mini bars on top of the tail lights for reverse lights. I'm normally not a jeep guy but this was sweet.

Is it just me or is that a little bit of Carolina Squat on a Jeep? Otherwise, nice ride.

It's on an incline.

I was thinking the same thing,If it was level or the rear a tad higher than the front it would look better.

Whole point is having a vehicle with enough cargo space for provisions for a few weeks, rugged reliability, and still be able to carry enough people and gear. Not so much about tackling the big mountain as it is about getting to the next mountain. Out there, it's about long distance survival so when you see a big mountain, you go around, not over. Here's an example:

Many of my family members have Hilux's.

This is pretty much what my Cousin has

And this is identical to what my uncle has

Both are 3.0d 4X4 Raiders. They really are awesome.
I watched the videos, they are hilarious. Especially the first one with the guy driving down the stairs and running into stuff on purpose. I wonder why they don't make them like that here in the USA. I know back in the day cars could take a pounding and last a long time. I had an Electra 225 back in the 80s that had been in an accident, ran over stuff and everything and the body of it held up and it still ran. But nothing like on that video tho...LOL

It was just parked on a slight incline. And the front fender has more clearance than the rear. But it sits level. I saw it driving last week but didn't get a pic.

I love at the end of the video he points out that the frame is split in half and says "for once, the bodywork is keeping the frame together" not the other way around!

Very few cars are still like that....
