Jeep CJ-7 Casually Crosses Alaska Road Destroyed By Huge Earthquake

Last week, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake wreaked havoc in Alaska, just north of Anchorage, the state’s most populous city.

Thankfully, there were no fatalities, but the infrastructure got hit pretty badly. Significant damages to bridges, roads and buildings were reported.

The following video will give you an idea of how destructive Mother Earth’s power is – and how little that matters for the Jeep CJ-7. You see, the Wrangler’s ancestor doesn’t need roads or actual infrastructure to get where it wants to go.

So when the driver of this blue CJ-7 reached a stretch of road that the earthquake had destroyed, it was just a minor inconvenience. Although one bystander was heard saying “no way dude” and a child screamed “don’t do it,” the driver took the classic Jeep straight through the mix of broken asphalt blocks and dirt.

Crossing one obstacle at a time, the CJ-7 and its driver made it to the other end of the road safe. While they made it look so easy, it certainly wasn’t. Judging by the massive off-road tires, the front-mounted winch and the lack of hesitation from the driver, this pair has probably tackled worse off-road trails than this one.

On a side note, the Jeep’s driver did take a risk by driving over the recently collapsed road. A sinkhole could have formed underneath and the weight of the car would have been enough to destabilize the asphalt blocks and send them all into the pit. But all’s well that ends well, right?

    Nothing to see here folks; just a Jeep going about its business.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    Did he need to cross that stretch or just want to?

    • Mr. EP9

      Probably just wanted to. It’s probably the only time he’d use the Jeep the way it was intended to so he might as well take advantage of the opportunity.

    • Six_Tymes

      He probably needed to, doubtful he just did that for no reason.

      • Loquacious Borborygmus

        Oh…he had a reason.

    It’s like watching a fighter jet fly a hundred meters.

    i.e. driving on roads.

  • Ken Lyns

    Ehhh not the first time a Jeep had to drive over a destroyed road.

  • Paul

    Cool. If you have a Jeep built like that it’s what you do.
