You don't have to make the jeep, so that will save some time, why don't you make a big sheet cake, and decorate the top like a dirt track, splatter chocolate all over the cake and the jeep for mud, you could have trees, stones and the main track going through the cake, heres the special bit that I can think of.
You have the jeep splattered in "mud" stuck back end down in a big hole, full of mud, then you make a little fondant/gumpaste figure of your brother in law stuck waist deep in the mud behind the jeep trying to push it out. What do you think?

Hope this helps, Good Luck! thumbs_up.gif
