PRESS RELEASE: ARB Jeep JK Wrangler Stubby Bar

October 23, 2012 wayoflife 0

The Jeep Wrangler JK stubby bar has been developed for the off-roader who is after a winch platform all while maintaining maximum clearance for larger diameter tires. Generally vehicles that run larger than 35 inch tires may rub the tire on the wings of a traditional style ARB Deluxe bar. The JK Stubby Bar eliminates this issue on the Jeep JK since the bar is only as wide as the vehicle’s grille panel.

EVO 1 Takes on Hal Johns Waterfall – South Dakota

October 21, 2012 wayoflife 1

Every description I’ve ever seen of Hal Johns Trail does it in three simple words, “rocks, rocks, rocks!!? And, having been out there for myself, I can tell you that it really is all that and more. Located up in the Black Hills about half way between Sturgis and Deadwood, South Dakota, Hal Johns is a badass rock crawling trail that most people rate a 5 out of 5. In this short WAYALIFE RAW video clip, you’ll get to see Mel Wade from Off Road Evolution take on The Waterfall in his 4-door Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited known as, EVO 1. I hope you enjoy.

Transformation of the Rubicon
Before & After Photos 5 Years in the Making

October 18, 2012 wayoflife 0

When word got out that the Little Sluice was going to be altered from the state it had been in for almost 20 years, people were in an uproar. And, truth be told, I can’t say I was exactly thrilled by the news either. However, while the recent transformation of the Little Sluice was big news, it was only significant because it was an iconic obstacle on the Rubicon Trail. The sad thing is, there have been work crews on the Rubicon quietly filling in rock gardens with crushed rocks, removing massive boulders, chopping down trees and closing off obstacles from end to end for quite some time now.

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, we headed back out to the Little Sluice to see first hand what was done and, to run it in Moby, our white EVO built 4-Door Jeep JK Wrangler. In this short video, you will get to see raw footage of what the Little Sluice looks like today and just how much easier it is to run as well.

Day 7 – Drummond Island

October 17, 2012 wayoflife 0

In addition to having an awesome off-road park like Turtle Ridge, Drummond Island hosts over 117 miles of trails that meander through boreal forests, across glacial rock deposits and stone ridges carved out by Lake Huron. It truly is one of the most beautiful places you will ever see and, we were happy to relax and explore it on our final day of the 2012 JK-Experience. Here are some highlight photos from tour around the island, I hope you enjoy.

Day 5/Part 2 – Rocks and Valleys

October 17, 2012 wayoflife 0

Located a little south of Houghton Lake, Rocks and Valleys is a relatively new off-road park with over 200 arces of hills, rocks, mud, tightly planted trees and other obstacles that offer a great time for wheelers of all skill levels. And, as luck would have it, this is where we would get to spend the second half of our fifth day on the JK-Experience. It’s also where most of us would get our first experience wheeling on tires!!
