When it comes to capable off-roaders, the Jeep Grand Cherokee ranks at or near the front of the pack by most measures. Enter: the Hum Rider, a Grand Cherokee that’s been rebuilt to rise up nine feet above the ground on telescoping hydraulic limbs so it can roll straight over traffic. The Hum Rider was conceived of by marketing firm Thinkmodo and built by Scott Beverly of A2Zfx, according to Mashable. As the video of it in action below reveals, it’s every bit as surreal and awesome as you’d think. (We bet you can guess which of those two categories buys more Grand Cherokees.)

One Week With: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
I drove a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk to Houghton Lake one recent weekend. Like all modern Jeeps, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk has its share of Easter Eggs, including the Willys MB image in the windshield and rubber floor mats. It was unseasonably warm for February — or, as the kids would say, “because climate change.” Finally, I found a small dirt turn-around lot, which proved the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is a serious Jeep, barely a half-notch down from the Wrangler. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk’s ride felt a bit grainier than most other modern SUVs, but this served as a reassurance that we were in a real off-roader, even if we’d see no more than half an acre of off-road. The standard height made it like getting in and out of a Jeep, and if you can’t find a good rock formation or frozen lake, the 2017 Grand Cherokee’s step-in height will have to do.
