Back in 1860, gold was discovered in the heart of the Owens Valley and by 1864, a hole burrowed into the side of the Inyo Mountains known as the Eclipse Mine was said to be the richest in the State of California. Later renamed the Reward by the Reward Consolidated Mining Co., this mine was worked consistently from 1880 to 1914 and then started up again in 1935 for an extensive period of time. What remains today is an amazingly large network of eight connected tunnels spanning over 500 vertical feet from top to bottom.

In the short video clip below, you will see two Jeep JK Wranglers that are similarly built, both running 37â€? Falken Wildpeakâ€™s and taking on the exact same line on the exact same obstacle, only one is running a Dynatrac Pro Rock 60 front axle and the other is running a competing axle. See what happens for yourself.
Tuesday, June 5th was the 2nd of two Transit’s of Venus for the century and the next viewing would be until 2117. Needless to say, this was something we had to see but unfortunately, cloudy skies over our neck of the woods would have prevented us from doing just that.
I love my new 2012 Jeep JK Wrangler and all the awesome “get up and go” it has right of the box but, if there’s a chance I could get a bit more out of the 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine and help it to sound a bit sweeter at the same time, you know it’s something I’m gonna do. Needless to say, recently I picked up the all new AIRAID Cold Air Intake system to help me to do just that and I have to say, I’m really happy with what I got.
