FJ Cruiser, Sequoia, and Hummer H3 Off-Road on Rattlesnake Trail
After school had finished this year, on my second to last day in Utah
before moving back to Colorado, I decided to go hit up Rattlesnake out at 5
Mile Pass one last time and I was able to get the new president of the UVU
Off-Road Adventure Club to come (Spencer in his Hummer H3) and then my
uncle decided to come a well (Adam in the Sequoia). We had a pretty good
time but it became obvious that having a locker makes life a ton easier. We
thought the Sequoia had one but real quick we realized on Rattlesnake that
this was not the case, so in a lot of situations, as you'll see, he had to
bump it or just gas it. And I think for the Sequoia, having that V8 on the
trail was a big help for getting it through.

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.
