By far, the most difficult section along the Rubicon, the Little Sluice (also known as the “Sluice Box”) is essentially a narrow crack about 100 yards long and situated between a granite wall on one side and granite slab on the other. Now, what makes this crack so challenging is that it’s filled with enourmous, ill positioned boulders made slick from countless spinning tires and a myriad of fluids left behind from fallen rigs that were either cut open, laid on their side or flopped on their lids. Being that this section of trail is virtually impassable, there are two different bypasses that one can take around it but last weekend, Mel Wade of Off Road Evolution was there to conquer it. And, as luck would have it, we had the priviledge of being invited along side feature editor, Ali Monsour from Petersen’s 4 Wheel & Off-Road and bear witness to this historic moment – the worlds first Jeep JK Wrangler tackling infamous Little Sluice.
Three years ago, Off Road Evolution had the privilege of installing the very first aftermarket Jeep JK Wrangler gear sets and to celebrate this year’s anniversary of it with you, they will be rolling back their prices to what they were back then and offer a limited time only gear installation special for only $999.99!!

While it had always been our plan to buy and build up another Jeep JK Wrangler, we weren’t expecting to pick one up until the 2010’s came out. The hope was that there would be some kind of significant change to the JK’s engine or at bare minimum, an introduction of a new color that just blew us away. Of course, thanks to the current status of Chrysler, the prospects of any real changes worth waiting for simply aren’t there (or so my sources say) and the only new color to be expected was the new Surf Blue and I wasn’t really feeling it. Needless to say, with dealers needing to move product and great incentives being offered up by Chrysler, we figured that now was as good a time to buy as any. And, as luck would have it, we found just what we were looking for yesterday and brought home the newest member of our family – a brand new, Sunburst Orange 2009 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited X.

Northridge4x4 is happy to announce that they will be working with AEV in Moab during the Easter Jeep Safari and will be performing a JK HEMI V8 Conversion Class on April 9-10. Customers interested in checking out the class will have the opportunity to talk to both the technicians doing the work as well as the engineers who designed AEV’s HEMI Conversion Kit. An intentional effort will be made to go slowly over a two day period of time to give people a chance to ask questions and see just how easy it is to install a V8 HEMI using AEV’s kit. This installation class will be held in the parking lot of Moab 4×4 Outpost which is located at 1805 S. Highway 191 in Moab. For more information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
