In spite of the lack of snow we’ve had up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains this year, there was still a good amount of water to be found on the Rubicon Trail.
This is a short clip of Chris Kelly taking on the Rubicon Trail Buck Island Lake Double Bumps which can be tricky not only because of the slick granite you have to climb but also because you have to hit them with your tires wet!
Russ had to wait two years to take on the Rubicon Trail Old Sluice but, as you can see in this short clip, he descended the last and toughest section in his Jeep JK Wrangler like a champ.
This first video is of Cindy taking Moby, our big white JK up the ever challenging Rubicon Trail Soup Bowl.
It’s been a real long time since Cindy and I have had a chance to run the Rubicon with a small group and felt fortunate when Adam (Overlander JK) asked if we could lead a trip across it with a few of his friends. Of course, as luck would have it, his friends Chris (Irish JK) and Kristen, Garrett (SDG), Russ (ttfhell) and Doug (Trail Bud) just happen to be our friends as well and all of them have built up rigs running ProRock axles and EVO coil overs.
In spite of the fact that we decided to head out into the middle of Nevada where it should have been warm, we instead found ourselves in a storm that left the desert soggy and filled with mud. Still, we were able to have a ton of fun and the rest of the weekend ended up being nice, sunny and relaxing.
The last run we got to do with our good friend Adam while he was visiting us here in Northern Nevada, was one up a trail just east of Reno and known as, Bronco Canyon.
Secret Canyon is just one of the many awesome trails that we have up here in Northern Nevada and really, it’s trails like this that make us love living here.
Over the weekend, our good friend Adam (OverlanderJK) came up to Camp WAYALIFE to get away from the hustle and bustle of SoCal living and spend a few days relaxing and wheeling with us up here in beautiful Northern Nevada. While he was up here, he agreed to let us use his 2-door JK to install a set of new Rock Krawler Triple Rate coils that had been sent out to us a while back for testing.
For more years that I can remember, Cindy and I have always headed out to Moab to attend the annual Easter Jeep Safari and spend a week there wheeling whatever trails we could. For 2015, we decided to change things up a bit and do something that we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and that was to make the long journey out to Moab into an EPIC TREK.
In this short video presentation, you’ll get to see all the fun we have on our most recent WAYALIFE Last Chance Canyon Newbie run. I hope you enjoy what you see and if you’re new to the world of Jeeps, I hope you’ll join us on our next run.
Fortunately, Cindy and I were able to get our good friend MTG to join us for our Monday Fun Day Run and the trail we got to play on was Bronco Canyon.
For those of you who are interested in installing one in your Jeep JK Wrangler, this write-up will show you just how easy it is to do.
Nothing beats seeing the expressions of people who are new to the world of off-roading, take on terrain that seemed otherwise impassible and then conquer it with their Jeep.
This step-by-step write-up will show you how to remove the power steering box (or “steering gear” as some like to call it) from your Jeep JK Wrangler as well as show you how to separate the snout and replace the O-Ring inside.
The 2015 WAYALIFE Presidents Day Weekend run would be one that explored the Inyo Mountains just east of the town of Lone Pine. Using the Dow Villa Hotel as our base camp, we spent the first part of our Saturday up in the hills digging for the fossil remains of Ammonites, extinct marine invertebrates that lived in an ancient sea over 235 million years ago.
Our final days of the JK-Experience would start off with a road trip to the south, down into the State of Oregon and to the town of Clackamas where we would get a first hand look at how WARN winches are made and right here in the U.S.A.
Our 4th day of the JK-Experience would start off with a trek to the west, over the Cascade Range, through the Mt. Rainier National Forest and down to a part of Washington that is famous for its deep ruts and menacing mud trenches – the Elbe Hills ORV Area.
Day 3 of the JK-Experience took us up into the Wenatchee National Forest and onto the Naches Basin OHV Trail System. Our destination of the day was two off-road playgrounds up on top of Manastash Ridge and the first of which is an area known as Funny Rocks.
For 2014, the Off Road Evolution JK-Experience presented by Nitto Tire, would take 22 built up Jeep JK Wranglers, 46 people from around the world and put both man and machine to the test as they worked their way down the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
