A Jeep isn't the safest vehicle to use at high speeds. One little twitch to the steering wheel and over she'll go.

Amazing actions, but the video isnt the most amazing
As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

I don't think 60-70 knots is "high speed". And that's assuming he kept the speed a bit high. It's also probably perfect for the occupants safety. It gives someone the ability to stand upright, and have something to hold onto at a good height for support.

You must have never been in a Jeep (Wrangler, from the looks of it) at those speeds. It doesn't fair well up that high on the speedometer.

Otherwise, interesting video.
