You Did It Wrong: How Not To Drive Your 4X4 Down A Steep, Muddy Slope

December 13, 2017

This is a video of a couple intrepid adventures demonstrating how not to drive a series 40 Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4 down a steep, muddy slope in Wales. All the guys standing out there telling him how to steer yell 'Straight!' over and over, which in Wales clearly means keep turning right. I'm a world traveler, I know stuff like this. "Really? How long has it been since you last left your apartment?" Depends, what month is it? "December." Damn, and the year?

Keep going for the video. And for the record, no, it doesn't land back on its wheels. I saw another video of them having to wench it back up. Also, please keep your hands and feet in the ride at all times.

Thanks to Jeremy, who agrees, when in doubt, close your eyes and gun it. But also be ready to die.

    Point the wheels downslope.

    I don't think that qualifies as epic, it slid 30 feet then did not even make 1 roll.

    Passenger broke a cardinal rule of off-roading - grabbing the door sill. Ground looked soft enough that he likely kept all his fingers...

    If you're a passenger and there's a chance you might roll, hug yourself. It's the strongest position and least likely to end up whacking the driver or breaking bones.

    who would have thunk, 'weekend warrior' isn't just in 'merica.

    I was holding my fingers over my eyes the moment I saw him put his hand out saying "nooo you idiot - all hands and feet inside the ride at all times!"

    NAILED IT

    I like those Jeep stickers that you're supposed to put on upside down that says "If you can read this flip me over"... Especially because I can read upside down... I sort of want to go around flipping over jeeps that have those stickers but I don't think it's popular anymore.

    On a related note, they definitely went downhill.
