2012 Jeep Wrangler Long Term Road Test


2012 Jeep Wrangler: Off-Road With On-Board Video

November 06, 2012

Here's a little point-of-view action from the Wrangler shot with a cool little iPhone case I'll tell you all about after the jump.

Went back to the usual spot, but forgot the tools to disconnect the front stabilizer bar. The above video is the same small climb you can see in the first video in this post. Here, with the bar connected, it's a problem. Enough so, in fact, that it required a second attempt. We did all of today's session with the bar connected and it made obvious the importance of axle articulation and limited-slip diffs -- in that order. Next time I'll remember the tools.

This is our first try at shooting anything with the Igloo Case -- a protective sheath for an iPhone 4, 4s or 5. Coupled with a suction cup mount it makes some pretty engaging video. The Igloo Case was cooked up by car guys and it works well in this kind of application. Recording can be triggered by a Bluetooth headset so you don't have to open the case.
