Watch This Jeep Cherokee Climbs Almost 90 Degrees Vertical Rock Easy As Pie


The Jeep Cherokee XJ is beloved by almost all off-road enthusiasts. With a bullet proof 4.0-liter inline-six making 193 horsepower and full-bore four-wheel-drive capabilities, the boxy SUV could easily outlive you – espeically when the road gets rough.

Of all the owners of Jeeps, there are some though, who like to take things to the extreme. This category of Jeep owners has crossed the boundary of mild gravel on the road or a muddy landscape or even steep climbs. The climb featured in this video is beyond ‘steep’. One such proud Jeep owner is Josh McBride from Layton, Utah.


While the Cherokee is quite a capable off-roader, Josh has upgraded it to be able to take on vertical rock walls in the desert. He uploaded a video of his adventures in Sand Hollow, Utah. The video starts with his heavily modified Cherokee at the base of this seemingly vertical ascent and ends with the XJ at the top. Whatever the case may be, McBride must have a freakish crawl ratio on his truck to achieve such an ascent.


According to the owner, the Cherokee XJ was built by Fat Bob’s Garage of Layton Utah. Some of the build’s highlights include Rock Krawler Three Link Long Arms, BDS Springs, G2 Axle and 4.56 gears, Torq-masters front and rear Aussie lockers, 15×10 Fuel Offroad wheels and 35″ Cooper STT tires.

Cherokee XJ was a celebrated SUV in its time in the 90s and 2000s and was considered one of the best cars in terms of off-roading capabilities. And looking at this video, it is very evident how the car earned itself the well-deserving reputation.
