Colorado in a Mud Trench @ Mettowee Off-Road Extreme Park
I try to get through a mud trench at Mettowee Off-Road Extreme Park. I'm glad I didn't make it through the last part. Looking at what happened to the lifted F350 with 49" tires, I woulda buried my truck. Who thinks I'll need a strap?

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.

Hummer Extreme Off Road | Amazing Hummer Video
This amazing Hummer Extreme Off Road Video shows the true capabilities and history of the Hummer. Rock Climbing, Mudding, Water Crossing and "Hummer Snow Challenge" and much more.
Born from a military background, it's not surprising to discover that go-anywhere attitude backing up the Hummer brand. This mindset was best exemplified by the late Hummer H1
Realizing that not everyone would want the civilian equivalent of a Humvee, the company added the Hummer H2, available as an SUV and as a pickup dubbed the H2 SUT (sport utility truck). Still plenty capable, the H2 shares its platform with the Chevrolet Silverado, whereas the most recent product to debut, the Hummer H3 and H3T (the pickup truck version), is based on the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon.
Hummer was created as a civilian version of the Humvee (HMMWV, High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle), a military vehicle developed by AM General during the 1980s. The first model, simply called the Hummer, was launched by AM General in 1992, seven years before General Motors took ownership of the company. After that change, the Hummer was renamed the Hummer H1 and GM worked on expanding the brand's line up and broadening exposure to the mainstream market.
The results of those efforts could be seen in the Hummer H2, a rugged off-road SUV that offered attitude and sheer mass not found in many competing vehicles. A pickup version of that utility vehicle, dubbed the Hummer H2 SUT, followed. By 2006, the Hummer H1 had reached the end of its line, but the resulting void made room for the Chevy Colorado-based Hummer H3, available with a five-cylinder engine in standard guise or as the V8-powered Hummer H3 Alpha. A pickup version, the Hummer H3T, is also available, as is the more luxurious Hummer H3x.

Offroad @ Mettowee Mud Boggers - Trails
Two Colorados and a Toyota roam the trails after setting up camp and meeting up with the local Jeep Club Adirondack Jeeps.
Mettowee OffRoad Park is located in Granville, NY.
Colorados from forum and truck club:
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.
