A Jeep is torn down then rebuilt in under four minutes – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Remember the video where we got to see how long it takes to put a BMW Z4 GT3 together? It took West Coast Racing 600 hours to complete that task. Canada's finest, on the other hand, think that time is laughable. A team of soldiers from the Canadian Armed Forces can put together a Jeep in far less time. Not only that, they start with a fully-assembled and running vehicle, tear it down then put it back together again... in under four minutes. Admittedly, though, we imagine that building the Z4 is a bit more complex than the work-ready Jeep seen here.

It's nothing short of awesome, especially since it normally takes us four hours and a 12-pack of beer just to change our brakes.

Whatever you just did in the last four minutes, it's not as cool as what these guys accomplished. See for yourself after the jump. Thanks for the tip, Duy Pham!

      given that they're Canadian, they probably practiced that everyday for a year before doing it in front of a live audience.

      I'm waiting for them to do a durability cycle test on the thing.....

      ...oh and the last time I looked, a sniper never won a war for any country. I live in Canada, but my heart belongs to the US military (USAF Security Police Vet). I'll give credit where credit is due, and honor the fallen. But saying better just doesn't cut it for me. Let's keep it polite and say "as good as". Let's see 'em retrofit a Jeep with existing materials to protect the occupants because Donald Rumsfeld says "you go to war with the army you have".

      Those old Willy's and Kaiser Jeeps are great.

      Impressive trick, but this Jeep is obviously modified for this. No coolant, brake fluid, or transfer case.

      Sooooo...

      whats up with the gay pride flag?
      • 4 Years Ago
      They don't take it apart very much.

      The choreography is nice.

      Is this thing really air cooled or they just can only drive it one block?
      • 4 Years Ago
      That would have been more ideal than the Beetle I tried to put on top of my highschool many many years ago...

      Im thinking: excessive use of velcro!!!

      Impressive, but I wouldn't call a Jeep with no coolant, two lug nuts per wheel, and everything completely unbolted a "fully assembled and running" vehicle.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's exactly what I was thinking.
        • 4 Years Ago
        No brakes either!
      • 4 Years Ago

        How many times have you put your life on the line for your country. I'm assuming since you've made this comment, a total of 0.

        Officially sanctioned armed forces, no matter where they're from deserve to be respected. People like you deserve to be ridiculed till you stop talking.

        Yeah I know that most of the world kinda snickers when they talk about the Canadian Armed Forces BUT take our history in war.
        WW1 Started training with broom sticks for rifles then took Vimy Ridge (only allied advance in the war to date), the English at one point almost transferred complete allied control of the war to a Canadian general.
        WW2 Started the war with a few tug boats, ended up with the second biggest navy, our army got the hard part on D-day and took on the Waffen SS and fanatical Hitler youth. The Germans looked at our troops as shock troops and always knew something was up if we came calling (in both wars).
        Korea We luckily still had a bunch of combat hardened troops from WW2 and were instrumental in stopping the Chinese advance.
        We walk and talk softly, and try to fly under the radar but make no mistake, we own the can of woop- a$$ and don't mind seeing the whites of their eyes.

        Wow you are a complete moron. Canadian forces have fought in many battles through the years both at home and overseas.

        Moron.

        Man you are out to lunch; I wonder who has the second longest sniper kill on record: CANADA! Not the “U.S.A” The British now have the record, but for the last 3 years the Title belonged to CANADA, “BUT” The British guy had a better riffle, and it was the one he used in training. His scope could get farther distance; also it took him 9 attempts before he got his kill. Rob Furlong (Canadian sniper) was using a riffle that didn't have as much distance on his scope, and one that he had never trained on before. Not to mention it only took him 2 shots. We get in and get the job done, and we don’t fu*k around. I know you don’t know shit about war, because go and ask any American soldier who has served in Afghanistan. They will all tell you the same thing. When sh!t get rough and tense. They there not alone because there’s Canadians to the right and to the left and we’re going in Hard. Engage your brain before you type something stupid.

        You Canadians need to take a Midol and ger your ovaries in check. Way to take a light hearted comment on the video and blow it up.

        Maybe I should have typed it in French:
        Va te faire foutre!

        Salty, when you're all done patting yourself on the back for your fine sense of humor, you ought to take a good look at who you find so amusing.

        The Canadian armed forces consist of fierce, tenacious warriors.

        No joke.

        They deserve, and receive, the utmost respect from those who know how hard they fight.
