The 2nd annual Off Road Evolution JK Experience presented by Falken Tire was a great success! A weeklong off-road event exclusively for Jeep® Wrangler JK's.
This year the participants tackled trails in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. The JK's encountered various levels of terrain from switch back mountain climbs, rock obstacles, rain, snow, mud and sand. All participants were required to be self sufficient and prepared for anything, even a night or two of camping in the rain.
Thanks again to all our sponsors who made this event possible for the participants and the crew, the 2nd annual JK Experience will not soon be forgotten.
The JKX DVD will be available for sale this December. Until then, visit our website www.jk-experience.com and our facebook page to see photos of the 2010 JK Experience and see what's in the works for the 2011 JK Experience.

JK Experience Area BFE Helldorado Extreme 4x4 Trail Run by Jeep JKs at Easter Jeep Safari
Area BFE is a rock crawling and 4x4 heaven. These Jeep JK's are some of
the best built if not the best built in the world with some of the best
drivers and supporters of the off-road community present. The trail being
run is upper Helldorado. The first obstacle is known as the gatekeeper,
later is the squeeze, followed by the waterfall at the end. Entry to area
BFE is free of charge, but donations at the gate are appreciated.

Jeeps take on helldorado, then we went and ran Green Day. The larger JK
was sporting a new Teraflex 6 inch LCG, 38x14.5 MTR, poison spyder rock
sliders and fenders. Poison spyder front bumper. Had a great time, broke
in a new rig.
Project-JK X-CLIPS: JK Experience Rocky Mountain Run - EVO1 on Carnage Canyon
Come visit us at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com
As Charles Wells state in his Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive
Trails book, Carnage Canyon is an "extreme trail for radically modified
vehicles. Minimum 35-inch tires with lockers both ends. Even with this
equipment, you'll need to winch much of the time. Mechanical failure and
body damage are a common occurrence." And, as luck would have it, this is a
trail that 5 Jeep JK Wrangler's from the Off Road Evolution JK Experience
Rocky Mountain Run, presented by Falken Tire got to run including Mel Wade
in his badass EVO1. In this Project-JK X-CLIP, you will see him walk up
the first winch hill/waterfall without needing to use his winch.
Pikes Peak 2011 near miss
Ralph Murdoch's 1970 Camaro drifted out of the normal
line and nearly went off the road. His back tire was in the loose stuff
when he gunned it spraying me with dust and gravel. The only casualty was a
chipped camera lens and mouthful of dirt, but no one was hurt and Murdoch
went on to win the vintage class with a time of 12:51.004.
What you can't see from the video is that this is in an S-curve and the
other cars were hugging the apex on the other side of the road from me. I
was joined at this spot throughout the day by other seasoned photographers
and even a race official said it was a safe spot to shoot. But like any
rally event, anything can happen. If you still feel the need to comment and
tell me how much you wish I was dead, knock yourself out.
Jeep JK WFTW Event @ River Rock ORV Park
Wheelers For The Wounded event held at River Rock ORV Park in Milledgeville
We drove from Miami straight through 13 hours and wheeled for a few hours
on Saturday before I had to retreat to the hotel to pass out from Exhaustion. Everyone else camped at River Rock.
It Stormed heavily through the night and when we got to River rock Sunday
morning every one had either left or was in the process of leaving since
the storms had made a rough night for them.
We stayed and had the whole park to ourselves..the weather cleared and was
Jeep Wrangler JK TJ Beach offroading and camping in Moreton Island
Check out our recent weekend trip to a beautiful Island called Moreton

Brisbane. We did almost everything, 4x4 offroading, snorkeling, camping,

Jeep Rubicon and Toyota FJ Cruiser Off-Road in Hawaii
We witnessed first hand the capabilities of both vehicles on the trails.
I'm personally a Toyota guy, having owned several Toyota 4x4s, an FJ and
now a Tacoma. They aren't evenly matched because the Jeeps articulation and
flexibility with the solid front axle, shorter wheel base and being lighter
weight. Driver experience, error and patience were also contributing
factors in how each vehicle performed.
We didn't create this video to make one seam better than the other. Ohana
Trails is a Jeep Club here that we were filming and by chance, a group of
FJ Cruiser owners were convoying with them. Unfortunately, we had more
video of the Jeeps over the FJ's.
All in all it was an epic day up in the mountains at Peacock Flats on Oahu
looking over the North Pacific.
