A M-B G500 being used how it was originally intended

Now, how many SUV owners do you think would do this with their precious trucks?

I'm actually looking at a couple of used ones. They are nothing to scoff at and can offroad just as well as any utilitarian vehicle.

Looking for another MN12 for a new project!

Well judging by the camber of the front tires, that suspension is actually fully extended. It wouldn't surprise me if it weren't a photochop. Just because a truck can't survive a jump like that doesn't mean it can't actualy catch air like that, and vice versa. Just because he caught that much air, doesn't mean his truck will survive it.

Okay so we've established that 1) it could be a photoshop or 2) it could actually be real. Let's just admire it for what it's worth. Cool pic if it's real

Why I think it's a photochop...

tires. Those are like a grand touring tire, useless in the mud.

height. the truck is too high for the slope given.

angle. The angle shown puts it taking off a couple lengths back, yet it is now at the top of the hill. Also, it should have rotated forward more

clearness. If the truck were to get that high, the speed required would seriously affect the camera's ability to get a clear shot.

mud pattern. the mud is mostly on one side of the truck, and looks to be shoot straight up. like johnjoe explained

I HAVE done it, that's why I think it's fake.

for once i actually agree with you. i think matt is pulling reasons out of his ***. the G is built to do stuff like that. probably the best 4WD truck you can buy outside of a Defender 90 or my dads '92 302 Bronco with front and rear lockers.

Well, here's my $.02:

I think I may have to reluctantly agree with GB on this one. I'm not saying the truck can't go offroad, because I know it can, but look at the picture a little closer. First, what is the "reflection" or writing or whatever in the front passenger door? Then, how often do you see the front and rear wheels of a car turned at exactly the same angle in a pictures. The spokes are orientated in the exact same angle. As for the grand touring tire argument, well, let's just say i've taken my fair share of trucks in the mud with such street tires. While not completely useless, they aren't spectacular either.

I think it's real, even if it is photoshop, they can do that.
When we do off road events, things get a little hairy.
We take these, hummers and of course Land Rovers and let me tell you something, there is nothing like launching a 75k truck off the top of a hill.
Its even better when it belongs to someone else.

If you looked at the high res version, you can see that it is a decal.

And I don't know what picture you are looking at, but the spokes are definitely not at the same angle.
