Congratulations to Bob “offcamber” for September 2016 JOTM Winner!
The photo is of my wife, Rachael’s 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel. Last year we went to the Ouray area in my JK and this year we decided to take my wife’s Grand Cherokee and try it out on the trails of Colorado. Her Jeep has a 2″ OME lift on it, aftermarket skids, and mopar rockrails and sits on 32.5″ tires. The Jeep handled all the trails we ran in the San Juans and averaged over 32mpg. The photo was taken on an overlook on Last Dollar Road between Ridgway and Telluride. If you haven’t driven it, Last Dollar Road is an awesome drive and great place to see lots of wildlife and old west mountain scenery (much of the original John Wayne western, True Grit was filmed right off the road and some of the buildings still stand.
Congratulations to Bryan “Stickerhead” for August 2016 JOTM Winner!
This “endo” happened between L&B and J&P Turnpike at Gilmer. I was leading an easy group when I decided to go down this obstacle. I eased down it but knew this was going to happen once I was committed. It made a lazy end over but luckily the stinger pushed it passenger and the “A” pillar and KC light took most of the brunt.
I want to thank Jim “Mudman for taking the picture and Brian MMMBeer and Trevor for hooking me up and my brother Lee “LeeBob” for winching me down.
From the words of Al “why didn’t you let off of the brake when it started going over?” Duh!!!
Congratulations to “Kidzey” Naghae for July 2016 JOTM Winner!
Thanks to all. This was taken at the Palo Duro Jeep Jamboree in May. The obstacle was meant to be a tight L turn, but I saw some tread marks going straight up so I asked. My guides said it couldn’t be done and hadn’t been tried in a 4 door, so I said “Let’s try it!” I knew I wasn’t going to make it up but wanted to see how far I could get and this was it. Back bumper and hitch got stuck in the ground and I couldn’t go any further. Backed up and eventually made it out the turn though. Already planning out a different line for next time… And happy 4th to all.
Congratulations to Michael “Gator Bait” for June 2016 JOTM Winner!
The picture was taken on the Rusty Nail? trail by Al (Wushaw) during an early May week long trip to Moab this year. It was a bucket list trip for me that I?ll never repeat! That was my mantra of the week. I have a severe case of Acrophobia. Pretty sure all were well aware! Especially along the cliff side obstacles! It was a great time wheeling and enjoying the company of a great group of people.
Congratulations to Scott “81 Renegade” for May 2016 JOTM Winner!
Election run 2016, Barnwell Mountain Recreation; the first trail of the day was Binder Boulevard led by our fearless leader Joe (Bushwacker) and his lovely and talented navigator Sonia (Bushwackersgirl). The picture was taken by Sonia and really captures the definitions of the of the terrain that lets the picture speak for itself. It was a great weekend that my girlfriend Susan (Sparkles) and I really enjoyed spending with great friends.
Congratulations to Bryan “Stickerhead” for April 2016 JOTM Winner!
The picture was taken by my brother, Lee Bob on Sunday Cruise on Feb 19th. We had just mud- bogged thru Whatever and decided to do Sunday Cruise as our last trail of the day. Got half way down the obstacle and sunk! Backed up and tried it three times and the squirrels said “enough!” I ended up backing out of the obstacle. Spent several hours getting “Gilmer” out of that running gear.
Congratulations to “Tall Steve” March 2016 JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken in Hot springs during the fall run a couple of years ago. I was trying to get close to the tree to clear the rocks and when I gassed the Blue Mule it climbed the tree. It scared me and Sharon but did not effect my son Jake that was in the back seat. Everyone yelled STOP so they could take pics but I had to back down a foot to make myself feel more comfortable before pictures were taken. Shortly after this picture was taken on the same trail I got the Blue Mule on three wheels and almost flopped again, it was a scary morning of wheeling for us for sure but fun. The picture was taken by LSJC club member Skip Hill…Thanks Skip!
Congratulations to Jeff “TREX” February 2016 JOTM Winner!

Congratulations to Al “Wushaw” January 2016 JOTM Winner!
This pic was taken in Clayton on the Jim Parker Memorial Run at Green Acres on Green Mamba extension, Cal was spotting and did a fantastic job. I made this obstacle on the first attempt.
It was a great run, Clayton is very challenging and a lot of fun.
I want to thank everyone for the votes!
Chris, blue TJ for taking the pic.
