Carl M. getting some serious air in his 1996 Jeep Cherokee. According to Carl there are no mods on this Cherokee and as he says, “.. that’s why its Insane!” We would have to agree with him on that and also say that it is a very cool shot!. Fly Cherokee, fly.

  1. It looks like someone forgot to tell Fox M. that his Jeep does not swim! You’re right about the fact that the driver doesn’t look happy, but you forgot to mention the poor guy who’s trying to push him out! I’m still trying to figure out the positions of the second entry, but the third one is a Jeeper after my own heart. I love the sand and even though you’re not flying, topping a dune and being airborn for that split second is as good as having wings.

  2. Postal workers have nothing on us Jeepers! We just have more fun than they do. Those are some great pictures although I can’t imagine being in the position that a couple of them are in. But I do know this, even a bad day Jeeping is better than a good day doing anything else.

  3. We had a similar occurance on one of our runs and that first picture could easilly have been my brother and I. The club started calling us Frik and Frak. It was our own stupidity that landed us in the predicament and we were able to laugh at ourselves after it was all over. Believe me, when we realized just how deep we were in the proverbial pile, we were both pretty upset. It sure didn’t dampen our spirits when it came time to go out again.

  4. I’ve come really close to experiencing ‘boating’ in my Jeep too. Let me tell you, it was not a good feeling. It scared my girl too. She was on the opposite shore watching it all. Of course, the guys got a good laugh out of it, and I can laugh about it now, but I sure wasn’t laughing that day. It’s an out of control feeling that I don’t want to experience again. It hasn’t stopped me fron taking chances but now I know ahead of time the depth of the water I’m about to cross.
