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 Tierra Del Sol 4x4 with Falken Tire
Last weekend marked the 48th annual Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari in
Ocotillo Wells, CA, and Falken Tires first year as an event sponsor and
supporter. Despite forecasts of inclement weather, enthusiasts in RVs and
Off Road vehicles were out in full force. Falken Tire was present with a
compound complete with their trademark blue and teal scalloped Falken
Motorsports rig as well as full vendor participation and R/C race track
setup from HPI Racing.
Although there were high gusts early in the week, the winds died down
Thursday allowing for Falken staff and enthusiasts alike to truly
appreciate the terrain and vehicles. Falken gave its SEMA project Jeep JK
a workout, equipped with Wildpeak A/T tires. Over the course of 4 days,
the Falken Tire JK and Wildpeak A/T tires were put to the test, enduring
all types of conditions from hard packed dirt to crumbling sand - these
tires were able to conquer it all!
The Wildpeak A/T is currently available in 27 sizes ranging from 15-20 rim
diameters and up to 33 tall. An additional 17 LOD (Large Overall Diameter)
sizes up to 37 tall will launch in the fourth quarter of 2010. The
Wildpeak A/T features a durable 3 ply sidewall (most sizes), allowing
enthusiasts to venture wherever they desire, both on and off road.
Friday night activities featured an open invitation bonanza at the Falken
Tire compound, with complimentary Carne Asada tacos and refreshments.
Enthusiasts and off-road industry experts joined Team Falken crew members
for the evening cook-out as a nice way to end the week by the campfire.
Saturday, the Tierra Del Sol staff held their annual raffle in which Falken
contributed one set of Wildpeak A/T tires, one set of High Country tires,
and 5 HPI R/C Crawler King trucks. With over 8,000 people in attendance,
Tierra Del Sol was an overwhelming success for Falken and the launch of the
new Wildpeak A/T product line and events campaign.
Next stop for the Wildpeak A/T tour: Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah!

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.

MAPLE HONEY : A Project-JK Canadian Style Rubicon Trail Run
Come visit us at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com
Earlier in the year, I got a message from a guy named David who lives in
Canada and frequents our forum. In it, he said that he and a few buddies
of his were planning a trip down to the Rubicon and was hoping that Cindy
and I might be willing to lead them through. Of course, at the time, I
didn't know this guy from Adam but, I said "sure" and that he should
contact me again when we got closer to summer and, pretty much put it out
of my mind. Well, sure enough, as soon as July rolled around, I got
another message from David to let me know when he and his fellow Canuks
would be down in South Lake Tahoe and, to see if we were still on. While
none of us really knew each other, none of us were really strangers either.
After all, we were Jeepers and, this is the story about our Maple Honey
experience on the Rubicon Trail.

Roktoberfest is a mega party out in the desert that Project-JK.com puts on
once a year during the month of October and out in the Cougar Buttes area

crawling on Jeep trails such as Bullfrog and Cakewalk and then celebrate
Oktoberfest well into the night at the Trashed Pumpkin Saloon. Special
thanks needs to be given to Alpha Expedition, Full-Traction Suspension, the

possible again. And, for those of you who weren't able to attend, this
