Congratulations to Josh “V.O.” for February 2014 JOTM Winner!

December 6th we had a decent winter storm for North Texas standards. My work postponed opening for a few hours so I wanted to check out the lake the family and I frequent. I actually had gotten out of the Jeep to try to see what furry critter ran across the road and when I turned back I thought it looked like a decent pic. The picture was taken with my cell phone and the 2012 Jeep is a work in progress. At that time it just had a 2-1/2″ lift and front and rear diff guards. Since purchasing it in February of 2013 it’s been a lot of fun owning it and I appreciate the votes.

January 2014 JOTM Winner!

Congratulations to Ryan “RKB84″ for January 2014 JOTM Winner!

 

Ryan and his best friend went overlanding over the summer of 2013, about 53 days, throughout North America. 13 states and 4 Canadian provinces, including Alaska, all west of the Rocky Mountains. It was a fantastic journey! This particular photo was taken on Night 3, July 29th, at the White House Trailhead BLM camp site, in Utah near the Arizona border, west of Lake Powell. It was at the southern edge of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Ironically, there is a 5-star Amangiri resort only a few miles east of the site, starkly different from our minimalist BLM camping!
The photograph was taken his friend via a 30-second exposure, to capture as much starlight as possible and get the awesome milky way in as much vibrancy as possible. The night sky in southern Utah is incredible! The red dirt on the front bumper is from the allowable off-roading they accomplished earlier in the day at Capitol Reef National Park.
The Jeep is a 2012 JKU Rubicon named Trixie, which he came up with as an older name attributed to the 1941. She is mostly outfitted with AEV equipment that they assembled themselves.

Congratulations Larry “CJ8Larry” for December 2013 JOTM Winner!

This picture was taken at Bridgeport Northwest OHV park back in June by Dave (T1ckT0ck) as he was spotting me up this little climb.  I can’t remember the name of the trail. We went out there for Dave and another friend of ours to test out their new Jeeps. The Jeeps did great and we had a great time.

The meat and potatoes of the Scrambler is an 81 with a Ford 302, C6 transmission and a Dana 300 with all the doodads. 9″ rear axle, Dana 44 front locked and stuffed with 4:88s. TNT Customs Y link coil suspension rolling on 37′s.

Congratulations to Rick “HanaHou” on November 2013 JOTM Winner!

 

This was taken at the Offroading 101 class at Bridgeport in September as I was leading one of the easy groups on a easy trail.

This was the first wheeling trip for my not yet 2 year old grand daughter Sydney Marie, when my wife saw the picture she yelled at me for doing that with my grand daughter in the Jeep.
Thanks to Craig Keehn (Semper TJ) for taking the picture.

Congratulation to Jeff “Bearkat” for October 2013 JOTM Winner!

 

This picture was taken at Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area (BMRA) in Gilmer, TX on the Election Run in March this year. This was on Clyde’s Ravine and was my second time on this trail. The first was during the Halloween Run in 2012 when the Jeep was only two weeks old and still had her paper tags. Let’s just say that Clyde’s Ravine almost got the best of me that time. I had her up on two wheels and nearly flopped her. After I got the lift on the Jeep I had to go back out and show Clyde’s Revine who was boss. As you can see in the picture she had a lot of flex and I was able to crawl all over that trail. Thanks Nick Shah (nsjeep) for spotting me and taking the pic!

The Jeep is a 2013 JKU Rubicon with a 3.5″ Rock Krawler Max Travel lift on 35″ Toyo Open Country M/Ts, Bilstein 5100 shocks, Poison Spyder front bumper w/stinger, LoD rear bumper & tire carrier, LoD rock sliders, a 10K Smittybilt Comp Series winch w/ synthetic line and Dana 44 front & rears with stock 4.10 gears and rubi electronic lockers.

Congratulations to Nick “TJ_BULLDOG” for August 2013 JOTM Winner!

05 TJ 4.0 6spd on 35′s at the time a 3.5 inch lift

Saturday May 5th, day after my birthday. I was showing off, thought I would give the Twins a shot. So I preceded up the middle section. I didn’t make it very far. I got hung up and after many attempts I decided that I wasn’t going to make it. So I then did what I knew I shouldn’t have done, I stood on the skinny pedal and hopped the D35. Next sound I heard was the snap, I broke the drivers side axle. After getting two jeeps up top I began to walk my jeep up to a flat surface, stopping once to push the axle back in. After 5 hrs of being in the dirt, one trip to autozone and spare axles brought from McKinney I called AAA. End of the day, it cost me my pride, broke locker and a new shaft. All in all, it was a great day. Too many names to list, a big thanks to all the guys who stopped wheeling and gave their time to help me.

Congratulations to Rick “HanaHou” for June 2013 JOTM Winner!

This was at Green Acres in Clayton, Oklahoma the 2013 Jim Parker Run. Last year I watch the group climb Jeff’s Ledge as I took the easier route, and then had to get pulled off a rock.
This year I have the Dana 44 rear with a Detroit, so Jeff’s Ledge was not going to stop me. Thanks to Jason Villa for taking the picture.

The Jeep is a 2006 TJ with a 4 banger, Warn Power Plant, RE 4.5 lift, Dana 30 front with a aussie locker, Dana 44 rear with disks, and a Detroit, 488 Gears, hand throttle, sliders, corners, and Hello Kitty stickers. LOL
