At some point along the way, for most gearheads, we consider heading off of the beaten path. Perhaps this is in the form of trail riding, other times, we might head into the mud. The one thing that most have in common is that we get this itch that we really need to scratch when it comes to going where there are no roads.
In fact, there are so many people who have gotten such an itch that millions upon millions of dollars, if not more, are sold in the off-road aftermarket realm each and every year. With a collection of different parts, vehicle owners can make their typical rides more capable of going wherever it is that the driver should choose to go.
However, being able to upgrade a vehicle and being able to drive it are two different things. Just because somebody has some off-road equipment on board isn’t to say that they will be adept at using it. In fact, we might even argue that more often than not, newbies really have no idea what they’re getting into which can create some pretty interesting situations.
The thing about life in 2020 is that interesting situations are generally captured on video. Unfortunately for those taking part in some of these situations, they aren’t exactly all for the better. Instead, we frequently see failures unfolding on camera that makes drivers wish that they had thought twice about what exactly it was that they were getting into or perhaps that they had made a different adjustment.
Down in the video below, we check out a variety of off-road wheeling situations that simply went wrong. Some of these were due to driver error and other times, equipment just didn’t seem to be up to the task that the driver was asking of it. Oh yeah, they also managed to slip a couple of wins into this compilation as well to balance things out a little bit.
