    Should be easy enough to make your own mud hole , all you will need is a few buckets of water and a garden.

    Wish I had a 4x4 toy to run around in my mud hole, also!

    I would not even think about driving there. Especially if I had any movable object on the passenger side.

    From the looks of the jeep it does not appear to have been flipped so not sure how one learns to do that without at least flipping on the side
    once or twice.

    It may be full size but if it is the driver is stone cool even full screen could only see his right hand on the wheel and it barely moved
    If full size also IMO the guy is crazy, most donkeys and goats would have to watch their step on that trail.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Everything about it seems to indicate full size, right?

    Suspension frequencies are a dead giveaway as is the tyre deflection.

    I agree with Tony, full size. And regarding to how one learns, I have no hesitation that's not his first rig. I had a rock crawler tube buggy on 42s and have done similar to that, but it was built to roll, and showed plenty of evidence. But unless that's one of the conveniently framed pics to make it look far worse than it is, I have never had the stones to run that close...

    It appears as though this is right hand drive (if it were left hand drive, I don't think the driver would have one arm casually resting on the door)... it looks like the driver's got a black jogging suit top on with a whit stripe on the sleeve that can be seen in the down-hill side window, and it appears to move. The hook on the winch also dangles, but that not conclusive.
