Forget the Tech! Alex Zedra Thrashes an Old-School Humvee in the Mud!
When it comes to off-roading today, there are all sorts of different technological advancements available to make it a little bit easier and more convenient. Long gone is the day where you throw it in four-wheel-drive and hope that you make it to the other side. Instead, all sorts of different electronics are thrown in the mix in order to make sure that a vehicle has the best chance of making it out of whatever hole it takes itself into.
However, there’s really something to be said about the simplicity of older vehicles as well. In fact, we would probably wager that a lot of people would much rather have an older vehicle with nothing more than a 4×4 system and the old trusty throttle to get it in and out of harm’s way while off of the beaten path.
This time, we check in with a vehicle that most certainly is bare-bones basic when it comes to going off of the beaten path. We’re talking about a 1985 military Humvee. When it comes to creature comforts of modern technology, we find that it’s devoid of both of the above.
However, that doesn’t stop Alex Zedra and Rachel Bee from taking on the elements with one of these bad boys.
Down in the video below, we get to check in as a duo takes on all sorts of mud and water in this old-school ride that certainly looks like a ton of fun. If you weren’t one of those folks who already wanted to add one of these machines to their garage before, after watching a video like this, you might just have a change of heart.
There’s something about the big and bad nature of one of these monsters that really pulls us in and makes us want to throw one around on the trails for ourselves.
