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.

2010 24H of Nürburgring - Falken Tyre Takes 3rd in Class
Nürburg, Germany -- With nearly 250 cars participating in the annual 24
Hours of Nürburgring (officially the ADAC 24h Rennen Nürburgring), Falken
Tire, an international force within the high performance tire category,
took third place in its class and finished 12th overall. The Nissan 350Z
(Z33; official designation: Version NISMO Type 380RS-Competition) was
entered by Falken Motorsports Japan, and was driven by the same quartet of
drivers who have represented Falken for the past four years -- veterans
Peter Dumbreck, Dirk Schoysma, Tetsuya Tanaka and Kazuki Hoshino.
The 24 Hours of Nürburgring is a touring car and GT endurance event on the
Nürburgring Nordschleife. With a lap length of more than 15.5 mi, it is a
grueling event, though it attracts multiple factory entries and over 700
drivers. Falken competes in motorsports events throughout the world,
running race versions of its street tires with factory and privateer
entries to great success.
The team of Falken drivers produced a strong performance, finishing further
up the leader board than the 2009 race, while competing against an
increased number of manufacturer entries, including a Porsche 911 GT3
Hybrid, which outlasted many entries on fuel runs.
While cold weather plagued the teams throughout the event, Falken
Motorsports' spirited Nissan, running on Falken Azenis, withstood the
elements and survived without serious mechanical gremlins, which plagued a
number of other teams.
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.
HEARTLAND : The 2012 JK-Experience - Redbird, Indiana [Part 1 of 3]
Watch Part 2 of 3 here: http://youtu.be/Iwj5KAneHYA
Check us out at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com
Born and raised in Southern California, our idea of off-roading has always
been about exploring the wide open desert, high mountain peaks and crawling
over big rocks. Of course, there is really is so much more to off-roading
than just that and, thanks to Off Road Evolution's JK-Experience, presented
by Nitto Tire, we got a chance to experience for ourselves how the
Heartland of America plays!
In this first of a 3 part WAYALIFE film series, you will see the beginning
of our week long adventure which started in Terra Haute, Indiana and got us
playing out in the hills of the Red Bird Off Road Park. For most of us,
this was our first time playing in real Heartland of America mud and,
thanks to a little storm known as Hurricane Isaac dumping 6" of rain before
we got there, it was one hell of an experience!
We hope you enjoy our film and come back soon to watch parts 2 and 3.
The 2012 Off Road Evolution JK-Experience presented by Nitto Tire was also
made possible from support of the following sponsors: AdArt, ARB, ATX
Wheels, Daystar, Discount Tire, Dynatrac, Dynomax, EVO MFG, Hi-Lift, Hora
Zero, Impact, King, Mastercraft, Project-JK, Rancho, Rockstar, Superchips,
Skyjacker, Tochmate and WARN.

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.
