Jeep Rubicon and Toyota FJ Cruiser Off-Road in Hawaii
We witnessed first hand the capabilities of both vehicles on the trails. I'm personally a Toyota guy, having owned several Toyota 4x4s, an FJ and now a Tacoma. They aren't evenly matched because the Jeeps articulation and flexibility with the solid front axle, shorter wheel base and being lighter weight. Driver experience, error and patience were also contributing factors in how each vehicle performed.
We didn't create this video to make one seam better than the other. Ohana Trails is a Jeep Club here that we were filming and by chance, a group of FJ Cruiser owners were convoying with them. Unfortunately, we had more video of the Jeeps over the FJ's.
All in all it was an epic day up in the mountains at Peacock Flats on Oahu looking over the North Pacific.

Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability, turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or hazardous areas.
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires, VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed, which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50 mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost $700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international purchase in late 2012.

HUMMERS GO MUDDING
Footage from a 2003 Hummer Happening held at the Washougal MotoCross Track in Washington. LOTS of rain and plenty of slick mud make for a great time.
